Ingredients

  • 6 corn tortillas
  • 1 cup canola oil or other neutral oil
  • Salt

Instructions

  1. Add the canola oil to a wide pot and heat to medium (should measure 350 degrees F). Do not let it boil or smoke. You know it’s ready when you add a crumb of tortilla and it sizzles up.
  2. Slice the tortillas into 6 wedges and fry them in the oil in batches a couple minutes per side, flipping here and there with tongs, until they begin to slightly brown.
  3. Remove and drain them on a paper towel lined plate. Dash them with salt while they are hot.
  4. Enjoy!
