Mexican Themed Foods Continued

Somehow, growing up in the Middle of the Pacific Ocean, I was exposed to a lot of Mexican Foods.  My Dad loved it!  He made it all the time for us, maybe because it was so inexpensive.  The one thing that he never made himself was Chips and Salsa, I LOVE CHIPS!

Not so long ago, I found a large quantity of Corn Tortillas in our freeze, with many packages having expiration dates long past due.

¡CHIPS!

I stacked up my stash of tortillas; cut them into quarters and heated a high-sided pot of Vegetable oil to 375⁰.  How do I know it got to that temperature?  * Cooking Tip – If you dunk the end of a wooden spoon into the hot oil and it bubbles profusely, it’s ready.

Homemade Tortillas Chips, not Salsa though

Fry the tortillas (remembering not to crowd the pan) to GBD (golden brown and delicious); carefully remove to a paper towel lined sheet pan and salt immediately.

Esto es muy picante!

Esto es muy picante!

Serve warm with your favorite dip and as always …

ENJOY!
