Cut the Tortillas into Hearts:

Using various sizes of heart-shaped cookie cutters, cut out as many hearts as possible within the edges of each corn tortilla.

When cutting out the hearts, keep the edges of the “main” tortilla intact so that it can also be fried and made into a big tortilla chip.

Frying the Heart-Shaped Tortillas:

Pour canola oil in skillet

After the tortillas are cut into heart shapes, heat a small to medium-size skillet on low to medium heat and add canola oil.

Put a small scrap of tortilla in the pan.

When it starts to sizzle, the oil should be ready.

Using tongs, carefully add a few tortilla chips to the pan (or more depending on the size of the pan).

Just try not to overcrowd the pan.

Continue cooking the tortillas in batches.

An option is to use a small skillet, so less oil is needed.

…which may require more batches then when using a larger skillet.

Seasoning the Heart Shaped Tortilla Chips:

Right after transferring the chips to a paper-lined plate, lightly sprinkle them with salt and chili powder.

This way the salt and chili powder will stick to the tortilla chips.

Serving the Heart Shaped Tortilla Chips:

As an option, these can be served in a small decorative pail, so they look like a “bouquet”.

Just stuff the pail with loosely rolled parchment paper…

Then fill in the “base of the bouquet” by propping the smaller sized tortilla chips in the remaining crevices of the parchment paper.
