      I've been making my own chips this way for years. I have always added salt right after coming out of the oil. Recently, however, I have started adding a little Goya Adobo seasoning right after removing from oil. Delicious!

      Nadine Cherry, 6 of 6 Very good, I also salt them, right when I take them out of the oil. If you don't fry them long enough, they are chewy, fry them to where they are crispy. Lay them on several paper towels to drain.

      So easy, and much more like restaurant chips than anything we've ever purchased in a store. We did salt them after frying, as several people recommended. Now we just need to work on frying them just the right amount of time. We used a deep fryer, set to 350.
