  • 6 corn tortillas, each cut into 6 wedges
  • 1/2 cup canola oil amount may vary depending on the size of the skillet
  • 1 lime, juiced
  • teaspoon Chipotle chili powder
  • 5 dashes popcorn or regular salt or salt to taste


  • Heat a small to medium-size skillet on low to medium heat and add the canola oil. Add a tortilla wedge in the oil and when the oil starts to bubble add more tortilla wedges. 
  • 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 the chips are a golden color, remove them from the pan on to a paper towel-lined large plate. Continue the process in batches with the remaining chips. 
  • Drizzle lime juice on the chips. Sprinkle Chipotle chili powder and salt on the chips. 
  • In a large bowl, add the chips and gently toss them so that the Chipotle powder and salt cover all sides.
    Serve with guacamole, salsa, or by themselves.
