Homemade Sriracha Chile Lime Tortilla Chips

14                   Corn Tortillas

3                      Limes

1 Tblsp           Sriracha Seasoning

2 tsp               Sea Salt

Canola Oil (or any high heat cooking oil)

  • Preheat oven to 350 degrees. On a cookie sheet, line as many tortillas on a single layer as possible, saving those that don’t fit for the next batch, preferably with a wire rack set on top of the sheet for extra even heating.


  • Bake for 5 minutes. Prepare a large fry pan with a half an inch of canola oil and heat slowly over medium heat.
  • Zest the limes into a small bowl, and then add the Siracha Seasoning and sea salt. Adjust to taste keeping in mind the heat level will be slightly taken down once on the tortilla chip.
  • Next, stack the baked tortillas and cut into triangles.


  • Once the oil is at about 350 degrees, place tortilla triangle in a single layer. Flip the chips after about 30 seconds or until golden brown. Be sure to lower the temperature if the oil begins to smoke.


  • Remove chips once both sides are golden brown, and place on paper towels to absorb excess oil.


  • Sprinkle with prepared seasoning and enjoy plain or with your favorite dip or salsa. Crunch!
