Fresh Tortilla Chips

No reviews


  • 2040 Soft Tortillas (Either Flour or Corn Tortillas can be used. I’ve tried both; they are different but I have no preference. Use as many as you think you’ll need to feed your guests. The amount of oil doesn’t vary.)
  • Vegetable oil
  • Salt


  1. Heat ½ inch of oil in a heavy skillet until quite hot.
  2. Meanwhile, cut your tortillas into quarters.
  3. Have a salt shaker ready that salts liberally.
  4. Have a bowl lined with paper towels ready.
  5. In batches, gently place the soft tortillas into the oil, careful not to overcrowd.
  6. Working very quickly, flip the tortillas after about 30 seconds.
  7. Remove when slightly golden.
  8. Place in towel-lined bowl and sprinkle immediately with salt, one batch at a time.
