Betty demonstrates how to make Deep-Fried Corn Tortilla Chips. These tasty chips are made by deep-frying corn tortilla pieces in peanut oil.
|5 inch corn tortillas||12 ((each cut into 6 equal triangles))|
|Peanut oil||1 Cup (16 tbs) ((For deep frying))|
|Coarse sea salt||1 Tablespoon|
Drop about a dozen corn tortilla pieces into hot oil, making sure they do not stick together.
Use a slotted spoon or skimmer to tend to the frying of the corn chips.
As they turn golden, transfer them from the hot oil to a platter covered with paper toweling to drain.
Grind or sprinkle coarse salt over top.
Continue in this manner until all batches are fried, drained, and salted.
Transfer to a serving plate and serve with Fresh Tomato Salsa.
