Tortilla Chips

This is such a super simple "recipe" - it's so easy I can hardly call it a recipe. The husband and I had a mexican night last night, and I decided to try my hand at making my own tortilla chips. I'm so glad I did! It's easy and SO yummy. I doubt I'll be buying anymore tortilla chips, I'll just make my own!

(Can you tell my husband loved them??)

Corn Tortillas
Serving Size: 32 tortillas

4 Corn Tortillas
Salt (to taste)
1/2 cup Vegetable or Canola Oil (for frying)

Cut the tortillas into 8 triangles, like a pizza. Pre-heat the oil in a small frying pan. Gently put the tortillas into the hot oil and fry on each side for 3-5 seconds. It's a very quick process - they burn easily! As soon as they come out of the fry pan, put them on paper towel to catch the excess oil and salt immediately so it will stick.
