Tortilla Crisps Recipe
  • 2-10 “gordita” or home-style flour tortillas
  • 1-2 cup(s) vegetable oil
  • Coarse-grained sea salt
  1. Cut tortillas into 8 pie shaped slices each. The number of tortillas used depends entirely on the number of people you are serving. I assume 2 per person.
  2. Place oil in a pan over medium high heat (1 cup oil for a stir-fry pan, 2 cups for a saucepan). When oil is just shimmering (when the top of the oil appears to be moving on its own), drop 2-4 wedges into oil, depending on the size of your pan.
  3. Allow tortillas to hit golden brown, flipping at least once during frying. Total cooking time per batch is roughly 30 seconds.
  4. Remove crisps from oil and place on an inverted cooling rack placed over a piece of newspaper or some brown paper bags. Sprinkle immediately with salt.
  5. Serve hot with salsa or as a side with rice or beans.
