Semi-Homemade Tortilla Chips

Semi-Homemade Tortilla Chips
by Charlotte Siems
Homemade is a subjective term.  If you want to get technical, you’d need to make homemade tortillas and those are beyond the scope of my skill and time.  But if you’d like some semi-homemade, fresh-tasting tortilla chips, they’re really easy to make:
Semi-Homemade Tortilla Chips
Flour tortillas
Cooking oil of your choice
Cinnamon sugar (optional)
Heat oil in skillet over medium-high heat.  Cut tortillas into wedges with scissors.  When oil is hot, fry wedges until golden brown.  This will only take a few seconds, so watch closely and remove quickly to plate covered with paper towel to absorb excess oil. 
While they’re fresh from cooking, sprinkle with cinnamon sugar if you wish.  This is the only kind of semi-homemade tortilla chips we make.  They used to serve them at our favorite Mexican fast food restaurant for dessert, and when they were discontinued we started making our own!
