You can easily make your own tortilla chips that taste better and often can cost a lot less, too. It really isn’t as hard as you might think. This is an especially great way to keep from wasting those corn tortillas that don’t really roll without cracking and aren’t as useful for other things, especially if you have a big package of torttillas. They taste a lot fresher than bagged chips.
Homemade Fried Tortilla Chips

Cut tortillas into wedges. Heat 1 inch of oil in a frying pan. Fry several wedges until crisp on both sides. Remove with slotted spoon and drain on paper towels. Sprinkle with salt if desired.
