From all these ingredients a non-sticky dough is formed. It is divided into smaller balls and thin sheets are formed. Cut triangles (or whatever pattern you want) and fry in oil in a hot pan.
After frying on both sides, place in a pan (I greased the pan with a little oil, but considering that they have oil on them from frying, I do not think it is necessary) and put in the oven for 3-4 minutes on high heat until crispy.
For the sauce: Rub the broth well with the olive oil and sour cream, then add the tomato sauce and pepper. Mix well
Serve with this tomato sauce (that's what I had at home at the time) or any other sauce you want.
Homemade Tortilla Chips
Whether you're serving shrimp tacos, guacamole, Cheesy Refried Bean Dip, or all of the above, you're probably going to want some Tortilla Chips for snacking.
My family eats tortilla chips like they are the best thing ever. We go through bags it quickly, it & # 8217s hard to keep them on hand.
In fact, there have been several times when I have gone into the pantry on taco night and found that we had none. Houston we have a problem. I mean seriously, you can & # 8217t have taco night without tortilla chips. You just can't.
But in a pinch, you can use the same tortillas that you use to make taco shells, and make homemade tortilla chips instead.
All you need is 3 ingredients and 15 minutes and you & # 8217ll be on your way to snacking bliss.
How to make Homemade Tortilla Chips:
First step to making homemade tortilla chips is picking which tortillas you & # 8217ll use. I prefer to use white corn tortillas. I simply like white corn better. You could also use yellow corn if you like.
You'll need to cut the tortillas into chip shapes. I find that cutting the tortillas in half and then cutting each half into three wedges makes them the most even.
After you & # 8217ve cut them into chips, simply toss them with oil and salt.
Finally, I prefer baked homemade tortilla chips, because, honestly, it & # 8217s so much easier than frying them. First, lay the tortilla chips on a baking sheet and bake in a 350 degree oven. You & # 8217ll want to bake them for 8 minutes on one side, turn them and bake for an additional 6 & # 8211 8 minutes or just until they start to brown. Let them cool and enjoy.
Variations on Baked Tortilla Chips:
I love my tortilla chips seasoned with a little salt but that being said, you could virtually do anything when it comes to seasonings. You could sprinkle them with taco seasoning. Or chipotle powder to make them a little spicy. Ranch seasoning might even be good! Cool Ranch Doritos anyone ?!
What do you serve with Homemade Tortilla Chips:
Obviously any kind of dip would be good or even use them as the base for your nachos!
Here are some of my favorites:
All you need for tortilla chips are soft corn tortillas. You can use either the yellow variety, or the white variety. They will taste the same. The tortillas themselves are just made of ground corn, oil, water, and salt.
If you are going to fry the tortilla chips, you & # 8217ll need some vegetable or corn oil and salt.
If you plan on baking the tortilla chips, you'll need exactly the same ingredients. However, you & # 8217ll need a lot less oil, and you can also choose to use olive oil if desired. I don't recommend olive oil for frying.
Oil: You can use vegetable, peanut oil or canola oil. You will need at least ¼ inch of oil in the skillet you use. I set the burner to medium high and then adjust it accordingly.
To test if the oil is ready, place a corner of a tortilla slice in the oil. It should bubble and sizzle right away. The chips cook quite quickly so you & # 8217ll need to be watching carefully.
If it browns too rapidly, then the oil is too hot and you need to reduce the heat.
Season the chips: A bit of salt is all you need to finish off these chips, but you can also use other seasonings. Some great flavors include garlic or onion salt. You can also use cayenne pepper for a bit of heat. No matter what seasoning you use, be sure to add it right after removing the chips from the oil.

How to make homemade tortilla chips
Start by cutting a stack of corn tortillas into 6 wedges. Next heat canola oil to 350 F in a large dutch oven. When oil is ready add in tortilla chips making sure not to crowd the pan (tortillas will stick together). The tortillas take about 1 to 2 minutes on each side until golden brown. Take out tortilla chips and place on paper towels. Season with salt immediately. The salt sticks to the tortillas better when they are still hot straight out of the oil. Allow to cool for one or two minutes and enjoy!
This is how Chipotle makes its tortilla chips
With fewer people going out to eat during the pandemic, restaurants have had to find creative ways to connect with customers. Chipotle, for example, has taken to social media to share everything from recipes to menu hacks for fans spending more time cooking at home.
On Tuesday, the chain shared exactly how it makes its tortilla chips - and the process, perhaps unsurprisingly, couldn’t be simpler.
Since early on in the pandemic, Chipotle has been spilling the secrets to some of their fan-favorite dishes — and the response has been enthusiastic. In April, the fast-casual chain shared a tutorial on how to make its famous guacamole, hosted by executive chef Chad Brauze, on Instagram. And in the following months, it shared recipe process videos on TikTok for its Corn Salsa and Cilantro-Lime White Rice.
The latest recipe Chipotle shared is its classic tortilla chips, the salty, lime-spiked vehicle for everything from salsa to guacamole to queso. Here's how to make 'em:
- Cut up corn tortillas into triangles.
- Fry the tortilla pieces in hot oil for 50 seconds.
- Toss the chips in a mixing bowl with a liberal squeeze of lime and sprinkle of salt. Toss again!
- Finish with more lime and more salt.
- Portion out the chips - and dig in!
The TikTok video, which is narrated by someone constantly crunching on chips, has amassed over 100,000 likes and over 1,200 comments in the two days since being posted.
Hopefully there are more recipe tutorials to come. Perhaps the newly resurrected roast beef?

Tips for Making Homemade Tortilla Chips
Stale Tortillas Are Best
You can use stale tortillas for making tortilla chips. In fact, stale chips are slightly better because they are dryer, and the moisture can sometimes interfere with the frying or baking process.
Personally, I have made tortilla chips from fresh corn tortillas, straight from the bag, and haven & rsquot had issues, but you & rsquoll probably get better results from stale tortillas that are a bit dried out.
You can either slice your tortillas into wedges, or cook them whole for different applications. I cook mine whole for recipes like tortilla stacks, and slice them for recipes like chilaquiles. The choice is yours and does not affect the end result.
Types of Frying Oil
Stay away from olive oil. It is best to use a neutral oil with a higher smoking point. Canola oil is great, though you can use any neutral oil, like grapeseed oil, avocado oil or vegetable oil. If your oil starts to smoke, remove it from the heat and let it cool a bit.
Frying Vs. Baking
I personally prefer fried tortillas, as they are much crispier, though you can bake them for a healthier version that does not include the oil. You will still achieve crispiness, though they will be drier.
You can also microwave your chips, about a minute or so per side, though I & rsquove never been satisfied by microwaved tortilla chips. Meh.
For the most straightforward way to reheat your tortilla chips, simply put them on a sheet pan in a 375 degree oven for 6-10 minutes, or until heated through.
If needed, sprinkle with a bit of extra salt, but honestly that shouldn’t be necessary. You’re not doing anything to agitate existing salt, and the chips should have plenty of time to get crispy the whole way through without burning.
That will get you 95% of the way there. For those purists who want to be as good as the day they were made, you’re going to have to fry them, albeit quickly.
Remember that frying works much faster than baking, so you’ll only need a minute or so for each small batch of chips.
Remember to work in small batches, as too many chips will lower the temperature, making the chips greasy.
Fry at around 350 for 45-75 seconds, draining thoroughly on paper towels, a wire rack, or a combination thereof. Remember to salt these liberally when they emerge.
