Well after I picked the kids up from school today I asked them what they wanted for dinner and surprisingly they both said tacos, I was a little unsure at first because our taco night has gotten kind of bland so I thought of what else I could make with it to make it a little more interesting! I figured home made tortilla chips and salsa would be wonderful!
I found this recipe on about.com so I figure I would share! Cheap, easy, and delicious!
Prep Time: 1 minute
Cook Time: 5 minutes
Total Time: 6 minutes
- 12 corn tortillas cut into 6-8 wedges
- oil for frying
- salt to taste
Heat oil over medium-high heat for about a minute. Drop a crumb of tortilla into the oil, if it sinks, it’s not hot enough. If it bubbles and comes to the top, it’s perfect.
Slide pieces into oil using a slotted spoon or spatula just a few at a time. Let pieces fry until golden brown and crispy, less than one minute. Drain on paper towels and sprinkle with salt. Serve immediately or store in a tightly covered container.
