Tortilla Strips

To make your own tortilla strips, cut corn tortillas in strips about 1/2” wide and 2” long. Place them on a baking sheet in a single layer and bake them at 350 for 6 minutes. Use a spatula to turn them over (don’t worry if not all of them get turned over, just try to get most of them), sprinkle them with salt, and bake them another 6 to 9 minutes or until they just start to brown. Remove them from the oven and let cool. Sprinkle with more salt to serve.

You can make tortilla strips in the microwave, too. Cut the corn tortillas into strips like above, and spread them out in a single layer, not touching on a paper towel-lined plate. Nuke them until they are crisp but not burnt. Check them after 30 seconds, though it may take up to a minute and a half. How long it will take depends on your microwave. Sprinkle with salt to serve.
