Mmmm Home made corn tortilla chips.

I got to take home a 100 pack of corn tortillas from girls camp last week and I thought, what am I going to do with all these tortillas? We got together on Sunday for a birthday party and the food was mexican themed so I fried up a bunch of tortillas and they were delicious! If you haven't tried them, they are super easy and way better than store bought chips.

First, chop up your tortillas into triangles, you can do a good stack of them each time.

Get your oil super hot, I like to use the term, burn your face off hot. I just used vegetable oil and I used my wok.

Toss your tortillas in. If the oil is hot enough you will have lots of bubbles and action going on, if it isn't hot enough then pull them out and wait otherwise you will have greasy chips.
I waited till they were
golden then I pulled them out, you can use a metal slotted spoon or a small metal strainer, you need something that has holes for the oil to drip out and it needs to be metal so it doesn't melt.

I place them on some paper towel, sprinkle with salt, you could even add some seasoning to them like a lemon salt or some chili powder. Then I put them into a paper bag.


  1. I wish I could have some of these right now!!! Stupid dieting!!!!!'

  2. Yeah, a ton of my family is on the HCG diet so they couldn't have any at the birthday party, they were very sad.
