Healthy Coconut Oil Tortilla Chips and Salsa

I love tortilla chips and homemade salsa. Here is a great recipe for homemade healthy coconut oil tortilla chips and salsa. What a way to lose weight!

Coconut Oil Tortilla Chips

12 (6 to 7 inch) corn tortillas
1 cup of coconut oil
1/2-teaspoon salt (optional chili powder)

1. Stack 3 tortillas at a time on a cutting board. With a large sharp knife, cut straight down through the stack, cutting into quarters. If making strips, cut across the tortillas to make strips the width you want.

2. In a medium size skillet, heat the oil over medium-high heat until a strip of tortilla starts to sizzle immediately when dipped into the hot oil.

3. Fry the tortilla pieces in batches about 2 minutes or until crisp and lightly browned.

4. Remove with a slotted spoon or tongs, and drain on paper towels.

5. While the chips are still hot sprinkle lightly with sea salt, if desired. You can also add spices like chili powder, garlic powder or ground cumin if desired.

Makes about 48 chips.
