Recipe Of The Day: Tortilla Chips

Angie Cao

You may have had some great tortilla chips at your favorite Mexican restaurant. You may have even thought that they were the best tortilla chips you've ever had. But we can guarantee you that they weren't, because the ones you can make at home are so much better -- even if you don't know how to cook an egg.

When you fry your own tortilla chips you get to eat them as soon as they cool, which means they're as fresh as they'll ever get. Since chips are all about freshness, this is key. So get some salsa and make a double (or triple) batch -- it's easy and well worth the effort.
