Let’s get started!

Ingredients Needed

Try to keep the oil at a steady medium heat (around 350°F). Too hot, and they’ll burn quickly. Too cool, and they’ll be too oily.

*Quick Tip!*

- tortillas - oil - salt - your favorite salsa or dip! 

Grab some store-bought corn tortillas and cut them into fourths or sixths.


Heat up some frying oil, about 2 cups worth or more, depending on how big of a batch you’re thinking of doing.


Add a handful of tortillas into the oil. After 2 minutes remove them making sure to shake off an excess oil. 


Season the chips with a sprinkle of salt and enjoy!
