Home Fried Tortilla Chips and Guacamole Recipe by Ash's In The Kitchen

I found a tortilla press on clearance and really wanted to try my hand at making tortilla chips! I was so shocked at how much better they tasted fresh and the recipe was so simple. Paired with some Chunky Guacamole and Cantina Salsa, it’s a definite crowd pleaser for a party or Taco night! For a lighter version, try them baked.

3 ½ cups Masa Harina

pinch of Salt and Garlic Powder

2 ¼ cups very warm water

  1. In a large bowl, combine the dry ingredients and mix thoroughly. Slowly pour in the water while mixing until a dough ball forms. Wrap in plastic wrap and chill in the fridge for an 45 hour.
  2. Remove dough from the fridge and roll into 1” balls. Line tortilla press with a plastic sheet and press the dough balls to your desired thickness.
  3. Heat skillet over medium-high heat and add 1″ of oil. Allow it to get hot and fry the dough balls for 4-6 minutes, flipping halfway through. Remove from the oil and rest on paper towel to absorb the extra oil.
  4. Slice the tortillas into 8 pieces and increase the oil temperature until it reaches 400°F. Fry the chips until golden and crispy then drain on a cooling rack.
