1 Pack Yellow or White Corn Tortillas- 10 pack, each cut into 8 equal wedges
Vegetable Oil as Needed for Frying
Fine Ground Salt for seasoning
Heat a wide, deep pot with about 2” depth of vegetable oil to 360 degrees. Add your tortilla chips or rounds in small batches to cook evenly. When a light golden color, remove and drain on paper towels.While still hot, season evenly with the salt. Serve with the fresh tomato-corn salsa, (recipe below), or top each chip with your favorite shredded cheese and bake in oven to melt.
