Homemade Sriracha Chile Lime Tortilla Chips
14 Corn Tortillas
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!
2 - 8oz pkgs Cream Cheese
½ cup Sour Cream
