What you'll need and how to make this dish

Ingredients

  • ½ cup of vegetable oil
  • 1 pack of soft corn tortillas (8 to 10 tortillas)
  • Fine salt

Method

  • Cut the each corn tortilla into 6 triangles
  • Heat the oil in a large heavy based frying pan over a medium heat.
  • Add the triangles in small batches and fry for about a minute or until they just start to brown. You need to be quick as they can burn easily.
  • Lift the cooked chips out of the pan and let the oil drain and then stack on paper towels to remove excess oil.
  • Sprinkle with a pinch of salt.
  • Allow to cool and crisp-up a little before serving.
