Lime Tortilla Chips

Recipe courtesy Alton Brown, 2006
Prep Time: 15 min Inactive Prep Time: 1 hr 5 min Cook Time: 5 min Level:
Intermediate Serves:40 chips
Ingredients:

1/4 cup freshly squeezed lime juice
2 teaspoons kosher salt
10 fresh corn tortillas, cut into quarters
2 quarts peanut oil

Instructions:

In a small mixing bowl, combine the lime juice and salt.
One at a time, dip the chips into the mixture and arrange on a cooling rack set inside a sheet pan.
Allow to dry for 1 hour or until there are no visible signs of moisture on the chips.
Place the oil into a 5-quart pot or Dutch oven and heat to 365 to 375º F.
Gently lower the chips, 5 to 6 at a time, into the oil and fry for 20 to 30 seconds.
Using a slotted spoon or spider, remove the chips to a newspaper-lined sheet pan.
Allow to cool 3 to 4 minutes before serving.

*If you prefer plain tortilla chips simply stack the fresh tortillas, cut into quarters and fry according to the instructions above. If you are making chips from the Good Eats recipe in this episode, the cooking time will be 1 to 1 1/2 minutes.
