Homemade Corn Tortilla Chips

Corn tortillas
Oil for frying (corn, coconut, or lard)

Cut each corn tortillas into 6 wedges. Can cut into rectangles or strips if desired.
Heat oil to 375 degrees in fryer or in fry pan. If using fry pan, oil should be at least 1 inch deep.
Place a few chips in pan, leaving plenty of space around each. Don't crowd when frying.
Fry 1-2 minutes on each side until lightly brown and crisp. Drain on paper towel. Salt while still warm.

These can be baked instead of fried. Place chips on cookie sheet or wire cooling rack. Bake at 350 for 5 min. or until crisp. Salt while warm.

A 12 oz package of corn tortillas will yield 72 chips or 12 servings, each serving being 126 calories and 8 grams of fat

I could eat a whole bagful of these. If they came in a bag, that it.
