Tortilla Chips with Tomato Salsa/ Corn Chips

Last Updated on

Today I post “Tortillas Chips” under Chips Theme for Blogging Marathon #13 conducted by Srivalli. Tortillas are the bread of Mexico. Crispy tortilla chips
can be used to quickly assemble delicious Mexican snacks. Deep fry a large
batch of these chips and store them in an air-tight container. They keep well
for several days.
Here tortilla chips prepared with
mixture of cornmeal and plain flour then make simple dough with hot water. We
cook just like simple chapatti and cut into triangle shape and fry in oil and
serve with salsa or dip whatever you like. You can call corn chips also.
From the nutrition value point of view,
