Ingredients

  • 6 flour tortillas, 6" size
  • 1/2 cup canola oil

Preparation

  1. Cut each tortilla into 8 wedge-shaped pieces.
  2. Heat oil in heavy skillet using enough to cover 1/4” of the skillet.
  3. When oil is hot add tortilla pieces and toss until golden brown and crisp.
  4. Remove chips and drain on paper towels.
  5. Store chips in airtight container until ready to eat.

Helpful hints

  • Check to see if oil is hot enough by placing one piece of flour tortilla in skillet. If oil forms small bubbles around the chip, it is hot enough.
  • For a sweet twist, sprinkle a mixture of sugar or sweetener and cinnamon over hot chips immediately after removing from the skillet.
