How to make homemade tortilla chips

Start by cutting a stack of corn tortillas into 4 wedges. Next heat canola oil to 350 F in a large saucepan with high sides. When oil is ready add in tortilla chips making sure not to crowd the pan (tortillas will stick together). The tortillas take about 1 to 2 minutes on each side until golden brown. Take out tortilla chips and place on paper towels. Season with salt immediately. This helps the salt to stick to the tortilla chip. Allow to cool for one or two minutes and enjoy!

  • These look way easier than I expected and I bet they are sooooo good! I am pretty picky about my tortilla chips, but when I find a good one I can sit there and dip them in salsa forever.

    • Eloisa,

      They never stay in my house for very long (we eat them up right away). I would say that they’ll keep 1-2 days before they go stale. Make sure to place them in a bowl at room temperature and cover.

      Enjoy!

    My family loves them!,, I also add some chopped cilantro when I add the salt for a variation. This recipe is requested often.

  • Michelle Hurlbut

    This is how we make them at the restaurant I work at, only using the large deep fat fryer. So easy and fast and taste much better than from a bag!

  • cameron

    does it really take 3 cups of canola oil because all of the other recipes i have seen don’t take that much.
