Fried corn strips seasoned with a chili powder mixture that’s one of the most addicting things I’ve ever made!


12 corn tortillas, cut into strips
2 Tablespoons sugar
2 Teaspoons chili powder
2 Teaspoons kosher salt
Oil for frying


1) Cut corn strips into strips or any other shape really.

2) Mix seasonings together.

3) Heat oil in a large heavy pot.  You only need about 1/2 inch of oil in the pot.

4) Add corn strips in batches to oil.  Stir regularly as they cook so the strips don’t stick together.

5) Cook for about 3-4 minutes until very crispy.

6) Drain chips for 15-30 seconds.

7) Season liberally.
