Equipment

Ingredients
  

  • 20 corn tortillas
  • 4 cups corn oil
  • 1 tablespoon seasoned salt see seasoned salt recipe in Chicken El Dermie Le Hermie

Instructions
 

  • Arrange corn tortillas in a stack and cut into 4 equal wedges. Pour corn oil in a deep 2 or 3-quart pan and set on medium-high to high heat. When oil is hot enough to make a piece of tortilla sizzle, add tortilla pieces, a handful at a time, and stir to separate. Cook until crisp (1 to 1-1/2 minutes); lift from oil with slotted spoon and drain on slotted oven broiler pan, season immediately while hot, then transfer to a bowl lined with paper towels. Cook in batches and try not to overcrowd the chips.
