Instructions

Instructions for Tortilla Chips

  • Combine flour, salt, and baking powder into a medium-sized bowl. Mix until all ingredients are well-combined. Make a hole in the center, and add the oil and water. Stir from the bottom up until the dough comes together and can form into a ball.
  • Transfer the dough onto a lightly floured surface and knead for 2 minutes with the palm of your hands, until the dough feels elastic and smooth.
  • Divide into 8 equal portions. Flatten each ball with your hand, lightly dust with flour, and cover with kitchen towel to rest for 30 minutes.
  • After 30 minutes, lightly flour a work surface and roll each dough into a circle about 6 inches in diameter using a rolling pin or hands. Preheat a non-stick pan over low heat.
  • When the pan is hot, place one dough into the pan and allow it to cook for 30-40 seconds or until the dough is bubbly and had brown spots. Flip and cook the other side for 10 seconds. (tortillas should be soft and not hard, if they harden they ahve been cooked for too long.)
  • Preheat a second pan with oil over medium heat. Cut cooked tortillas into 8 triangle wedges. Deep fry tortillas for about 2-3 minutes or until golden brown and cripsy.
