Easy To Make Corn Tortilla Chips
There is absolutely nothing better than filling up on corn tortilla chips as well as an impressive salsa. Yet exactly how around filling up on really excellent corn tortilla chips that you make on your own? You will not think just how much far better they taste than the ones you purchase, packaged in plastic bags, in your local store.
Fresh. Crunchy. And the taste! You can't consume merely one. And also, you'll appreciate making these wonderfully flavored tortilla chips on your own.
Neglect that they are fried. Believe it or not, they amount of time they remain in the fryer is less fattening compared to if you were to fry up some eggs in butter!
What you'll need:
- 24 white, blue or yellow corn tortillas
- 2 quarts of sunflower or safflower oil
- sea salt to taste
- electric fryer or deep fryer
First thing to do is to stack your tortillas into a few piles (6 each will do it). Without an excellent, sharp knife, reduce each pile into 8 equivalent wedges. For bigger chips, reduced right into 6 equivalent wedges. Expand your newly cut tortilla wedges on some paper towels.
Put oil into your electrical fryer, deep fryer or a deep, heavy pot. Make certain you pour the oil to a deepness of 4 to 5 inches. The oil must likewise not show up more than halfway up the side of your frying container.
When the temperature registers between 375 as well as 400 degrees F on a deep fat thermostat, start adding your tortilla wedges - one handful at a time. Fry for 1 minute. Stir a number of times.
Don't do what I did the first time, and crowd your corn tortilla chips. They obtain as well soggy this way. Give them a little breathing room. Fry your chips just until they look crisp, however not brown.
With a slotted spoon, transfer your chips to paper towels and also season with salt. For a variant, spray without your favorite seasoned salt like Spike or Dash.
Continue frying the chips until you have used up all of your tortilla wedges. Make sure you check the temperature level each time before you put a brand-new set in. If the temperature level isn't hot enough, you'll never ever have great crispy, fresh tasting tortilla chips.
