There’s nothing like a hot snack on a rainy essay day. So today, in between essays, I made some tortilla chips. Which are amazing. Cheap. And delicious. Here’s how…
Heat some hot oil in a frypan. On the stove. I used peanut oil. On the highest temperature. With about three quarters of a centimetre of oil throughout the pan.
Wait till it bubbles a little.
Cut your tortillas into chip shapes.
Put them in oil – once the oil is hot enough each side will cook in somewhere between 20 and 40 seconds.
Put the cooked ones on a piece of paper towel.
Once they’re all done, pile them all up into a bowl and liberally apply sour cream and salsa. They’re also fantastic with mince as Nachos. And great by themselves.
