Frying Up

Yesterday I shared the tacos the boy and I made, and also mentioned how I'd been a little indecisive on what type of tortillas to buy. Since I wound up buying both chipotle and normal flour version, we wound up with a lot of leftover. And what's a better way to use up leftover tortillas then by making chips right?
Into the Oil
I feel kind of silly writing about this step by step, but I have the pictures so I might as well use them right? Once you have the tortillas cute into your desired size throw them into the hot oil.
Chips Frying
Flip them when they start to brown.
Tortilla Chips
Take them out of the oil and sprinkle with salt.
Chips & Guac
Enjoy with topping of your choice. As you can see I went with the leftover guacamole.

As for the final verdict, they were good, but I think I was a little heavy handed on the salt. I mean just look as how much gathered on some of the ones in the background. But I still think it's a fun easy snack, and since there's still leftover tortillas in the house I just might have to try to perfect them! Anyone else ever try out frying your own chips?
