Making your own Crispy Corn Tortilla Strips

I like to have these on hand when we make soups and chili’s or even for salads.  I need to have that “crunch” when im eating certain meals.
These  are super easy to make and they are great to add to any meal.
1. Cut a few corn tortilla’s to the size you want.  I personally like to have mine in small bite size.  I think it is alot easier to eat.
2. Place about 1/2 cup of oil in a small sauce pan and let it get hot.  Place a few of the strips in the oil and stir occasionally until they are crispy and lightly brown.  Remove from oil and sprinkle with salt, taco seasoning or chili lime seasoning.  Just add the flavor you are trying to get with your meal.
3. Lay strips on a paper towel to catch the excess oil.  Serve with your favorite meal.
Keep leftovers in a Ziploc baggie.

  3. Great idea! I’ve made my own nacho chips, but never thought of making strips. (How to miss the obvious!)
