Tortilla Chips Recipe
This recipe has been on my mind for a long time. But as a matter of fact, I was planning to try it one day when I was making tortilla at home. Recently, my husband bought tortilla for raw meatballs. He ate only 1 of the 10 packs, the rest no matter what Kevser does.
I ate tortilla for the first time when I came to Ankara to study at university. Since I am not used to it, I never call, and if I do not come across it, I do not want to come to my mind. I even open the Adana wrap, separate the tortilla, and eat the Adana roll alone. The introduction of tortilla into our house only happens as a result of an extraordinary event like what I mentioned above. Anyway, this is the opportunity, so I turned some of these tortilla into chips. I used my own method for this as well. So that there are no spice crumbs on the chips while eating, I roasted everything that would give flavor to the chips in oil and let them leave their flavor in the oil. Then I filtered the oil and blended the tortilla with this oil. I did not add salt because I thought the salt of the tortilla would be enough. But it wasn't enough. While we were eating, we thought that it was not much, but a little more salty. That's why I added 1 teaspoon of salt to the ingredients for you. If you have a problem with salt consumption, you can not add it.
It is also possible to use homemade tortilla instead of ready-made tortilla, but it is not practical enough. In cases where you make tortilla at home but cannot consume all of it, you can use tortilla for evaluation purposes.
You can consume your chips with a dip sauce of your choice. If you want to try different dips, you can try guacamole sauce, red pepper dip and eggplant dip.
