Homemade Tortilla Chips from 'Ultimate Nachos'
Use this basic tortilla chip recipe as a base for frying up your own chips to use in recipes from our Cook the Book column this week: Lee Frank and Rachel Anderson's Ultimate Nachos. While the recipe is written for a single tortilla, you can fry many, many more chips in this manner. If you're using a large skillet, or frying more than a couple of tortillas, you will want to increase the amount of oil used. A depth of 1/4 inch of oil is plenty for these slender chips.
