Deep Fried Corn Tortillas with Tangy Salsa

On with 0 Comment
I've noticed people in this part of the subcontinent just love fried stuff. Today's snack is of Mexican origin and is ideal for cocktail parties. You can experiment with lot of ingredients for making different variants of this snack. I've used the combination of corn and wheat flour but you can use just whole wheat. Similarly, the ingredients of salsa base can be changed as well. You can also replace the entire salsa with a spicy dip or sauce having a thick consistency. You can keep these crispy tortillas in an airtight container for a longer period too. My kids mix these tortillas in spaghetti to get a crunchy eating experience. So, let's make this crunchy, spicy and delicious snack that's filled with fiber and nutrients.
