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.
