Crispy Tortilla Chips

15 May

Crispy tortilla chips.

  • one tortilla, cut the tortillas into eight wedges.
  • extra virgin olive oil

In a pan on high heat, add enough oil to thinly coat the bottom of the pan. Once the oil is hot add in the tortilla wedges. (Do not overcrowd the pan. Depending on the size of your pan, two batches may be required.)  It will only take a minute or two for the tortillas to brown and crisp, flip then over (using a tong is easiest) and brown for another minute. Be watchful as the tortillas burn easily.  Reduce the heat if needed.

Serve immediately. The tortilla chips make ideal accompaniments to salad (they act like croutons) or as chips for dipping into salsa or guacamole.

    A great idea to make them yourself – they must be much healthier.

    These look good. I normally just do it in the oven but yours looks much better.
