Low Carb and Super Fantabulously Crispy Tortilla Chips Two Ways

"For Carb Cravers - Make them one way for a dinner snack and another way for a dessert snack. They make up fast and you can re-use the fat. These helped me not miss munchies so much when I low carb. Make sure you read the tortilla packages to get the lowest net carbs so you can have a nice sized serving. The secret to success is to dress the chips while they are hot!"

Ready In:
64 chips




  • Have your toppings measured out and in brown paper bags ready to shake the chips inches.
  • Get the Crisco hot in a cast iron pan. When it is sizzling add the chips and turn them when they blister and bubble and get a toasty brown. Just remember to work fast and don't walk away from the pan. Drain on brown paper bags or paper towels (the bags seem to work best for this). Do not cool. Put them into the seasoning bags as you cook them and give them a shake, coating all.
  • Serve warm.

  • Make extras and serve with salsa, chopped olives and grated cheddar.

Hello Zaars and Zaarinas! Thank all of you who tried my 'memory' recipes and left such nice reviews and for taking such lovely pictures. I do appreciate your comments. My pet peeves about cooking are recipe reviews where the reviewer says, "I made the recipe exactly as written EXCEPT yada yada yada" and I don't like suggestive names or titles such as, "Better Than Sex". I don't know why anyone would eat anything that is 'sinful' or 'decadent' since decadent is described as being decaying. Also, PAP-RI-KA only has 3 syllables. VINAIGRETTE is pronounced vin-a-grette, not vinager-ette. It's mas-car-pone not mars-ca-pone. And I don't like cutesy adult baby talk,,, or metro chic names like delish, nutrish, yummo, sammy, BAM! Oh well, I make as many, or more, faux pas as the next guy especially in ASL! Things that crack me up are: DH Fred from youtube.com Nick, my nephew Fish and Poi song as performed by PoiBoi My possum recipe per the song on http://www.youtube.com/watch?v=xVvL4-srt6U http://www.youtube.com/watch?v=JpbyM8k7e2Q wow this is good! my Doggie Little Yellow Petey Bird on youtube My BFF's. all of them and there are so many! and my little Sister Mary Beth. She has MS and Lupus and a great attitude. <img src="http://i23.photobucket.com/albums/b399/susied214/permanent%20collection/PAC08Main.jpg" border="0" alt="Photobucket"> <img src="http://i23.photobucket.com/albums/b399/susied214/permanent%20collection/adoptedspring08.jpg">
