I love tortilla chips. I especially love homemade ones. No, these tie dyed tortilla chips are not baked..But they are a delight, and if you use them as the base for nachos they will be baked..how’s that?
These are a fun project for the whole family. The kids will have a great time painting the tortillas with food colors. If you are doing these for a Christmas party then do them in red and green. I want to do a pop culture party for New Years with the Tie Dyed Cheesecake and some retro style stuff that is yet to be named.
These are so much fun for kids; I’ve added them to the Kids’ Goodies Blog Hop!
1. Lay the tortilla flat on a work surface that has been protected with wax paper or other protective layer. Using the food color and brush begin to paint the dye onto the tortilla, mixing colors any way you like.
2. Let tortillas dry for 1 hour.
Fry the Tortilla Chips:
1.Fill fryer with oil and preheat according to manufacturer’s instructions.
2.Cut tortillas into eighths with sharp knife.
3.When the oil reaches 375 degrees (185 C ) place the triangles into the fryer basket. Do not crowd them too much.. Fry until crispy. This will take about 1 to 3 minutes.
4.Pull basket out of oil and hold over the fryer so that the extra oil can run off for a minute or two. Tip basket carefully on towel, or paper towel.
5.Let the oil heat back up to 375F (185C) before you add any more tortillas. Repeat process until all the chips are cooked.
6.Sprinkle with salt, if desired, and serve hot.
