Halloween Tortilla Chips

I'm joining Gollum's Foodie Friday today on this Halloween Eve.  You can join Gollum and join in the fun or check out the great recipes and ideas shared by clicking here.

I'm sharing this recipe for which I promise you will receive rave reviews.  These chips are so good and can be eaten alone or with your choice of dips.  They are also quick and easy.

Cut your tortillas in desired shape...I use Halloween cookie cutters.  Drop into peanut oil and fry for about 2 minutes, until light brown.

Drain on paper towels and sprinkle with seasoning.

Store in a sealed container until ready to use. 

Tip: If you store these for a couple of days, they can stale.  To bring them back to life, spread on a baking sheet and place in a 350 preheated oven for a couple minutes.  This will warm and crisp them back up, just like new. 

Halloween Tortilla Chips

Package corn tortillas
Peanut Oil
Cayenne Pepper

Cut tortillas into wedges or various shapes using cookie cutters.  A cookie cutter will easily cut through 3-4 tortillas at a time.  Fry tortillas in small batches in peanut oil heated to about 350 degrees in large container.  Remove from oil and drain on paper towels.  Season to taste with mix of salt, cayenne pepper, paprika and garlic powder. Can be made a day ahead of time and stored in air tight container. 

Enjoy and Happy Halloween!!
All the best,

Pin It!

Cute! Can you use something other than peanut oil to fry them in? I'm allergic.
