Fried Corn Tortillas

Mama Dee


Recipe idea I tried 8/13/2010 from a recipe I found at

pinch tips: How to Poach an Egg




Stove Top


1 pkg
small corn tortillas (cut in wedges)
cooking oil
season to taste
(taco/salsa type sauce, etc. for dipping - your choice)

Directions Step-By-Step

Take about four or so corn tortillas at a time (stacked together) and cut in pizza shaped wedges. After desired number of tortillas are cut, heat oil on stove top in a heavy deep boiler. Turn oil to high to heat up and then reduce heat to medium to medium high. Drop cut wedges a little at a time in hot oil and fry until very light golden color and crisp (not long - they burn quick) Remove from oil with a slotted spoon. Drain on paper towels. Serve plain or season to taste. (I served mine with mild taco sauce for a dip.)
