Homemade Tortilla chips

I can't believe how easy it is to make home made tortilla chips. Cut corn tortilla's into fourths and fry in oil for approximately 4 minutes. Turn them about 1/2 way. I found 3 to 3 1/2 minutes worked better for me. Take them out, put them on paper towels and throw into a bowl. Sprinkle with salt.

They are great and work the best when making a nacho supreme snack. They are strong and hold everything really well - aka they don't break.

I got this idea from Nick at his macheesmo site. Thanks Nick. I didn't quite follow how he made the nacho supreme. I just followed his advise on making homemade Tortilla chips. I just put the following in order on mine. Guacamole, ground turkey, cheese, salsa, and sour cream. I found the ground turkey stuck really well on top of the Guacamole and heard salsa can make chips less soggy if not put as one of the last ingredients. I did cook the ground turkey with a little taco seasoning on the stove first. It would be best if the guacamole, salsa and sourcream were warmed up a little before making, but I didn't do that. It was put into the oven at 350 for about 7 minutes. The cheese melts fast, so keep checking.
