  1. Tortillas (store bought corn or flour tortillas)
  2. salt
  3. canola or vegetable oil


  • Slice up your tortillas (corn or flour, however I once again think corn is better)
  • place your oil into a heavy set pot and heat on a medium/high heat. Check the temperature of the oil. If you want to test it if you think it is getting to be hot enough, toss in once slice and see how it fries up. If it is not crisping up, allow the oil to continue to heat up.
  • Once the oil is the right temperature, place several slices into the pot (but don’t overcrowd them- it will cool the oil too much).
  • Fry for 3 or so minutes on each side (until nice and golden)
  • remove from the oil and toss with salt!
