Three Ingredients for Tortilla Chips:

Corn Tortillas – I use the Mission White Corn Tortillas You can find at your local Super Market 10 (6-inch) corn tortillas, each cut into eight wedges.

Vegetable oil – peanut oil or canola oil will work here too. Don’t use an oil with a lower smoking point, like extra-virgin olive oil, or it will burn and taste bad at this temperature.

Kosher Salt – the great thing about making chips at home is you can season them with salt to taste,

How to Make Homemade Tortilla Chips (Fried):

  1. Heat oil in a large frying pan or cast-iron skillet over medium-high heat until shimmering but not smoking or 350°F on a deep-frying thermometer, about 8 minutes. Meanwhile, line two large plates or baking sheets with paper towels and set aside.

2. When oil is hot, add a few handfuls of tortilla wedges, being careful not to overcrowd, and fry until golden brown, about 2 minutes per side. Remove chips with a slotted spoon to the paper-towel-lined plates or baking sheets and sprinkle with salt. (Check the oil temperature in between batches and adjust heat accordingly.) Repeat with remaining tortillas and serve.
