  • corn tortillas each cut into heart shapes (various sizes)
  • ½ cup canola oil amount may vary depending on the size of the skillet
  • 1 teaspoon chili powder
  • 8 pinches salt or salt to taste


  • Heat a small to medium-size skillet on low to medium heat and add canola oil. 
  • Add a small scrap of tortilla in the oil. When the scrap starts to sizzle, the oil should be ready. Add a few of the tortilla chips at a time so not to overcrowd the pan. Carefully watch the oil; if it gets too hot, lower the heat.
  • Once the bottom sides of the tortillas turn a golden color, using tongs, carefully turn them over.
  • Once both sides of chips are a golden color, remove them from the pan on to a paper towel-lined large plate. 
  • Lightly sprinkle the chips with salt and chili powder. Continue the process in batches for the remaining chips. 
  • Serve by themselves, or with salsa or guacamole.
