I love eating chips & salsa. If we’re having any type of Mexican themed meal, chips & salsa will always be served right along with it. And I love making homemade flour tortilla chips to have with my salsa instead of just traditional corn tortilla chips.
I got hooked on flour tortilla chips years back when one of the big-name brands, Tostitos, used to have them available in the stores. But then they stopped selling them, which caused me to start making my version, which I think is delicious. They get crispy on the outside but stay somewhat soft in the middle of the chip, perfect for scooping up salsa!
- flour tortillas
- oil for frying – I typically use vegetable or canola, just depending on what I have in the pantry
- salt to season
- Pour enough oil into the bottom of a deep skillet to cover the bottom up to about an inch deep. Heat the oil over medium to medium-high heat.
- Cut the flour tortillas into eight triangles using a sharp knife or pizza cutter.
- Carefully drop the triangles into the hot oil. Fry until golden & then flip and continue cooking until golden brown on both sides.
- Using a slotted spoon or tongs, remove the chips from the frying pan & place them on a paper towel-lined plate to drain & cool. Immediately season with salt.
- Serve with your favourite salsa or dip. Store in an airtight container.
