Homemade Tortilla Chips With Seafood Nachos Recipe (Fish For Friday Recipe)

Homemade Tortilla Chips With Seafood Nachos Recipe

See More Seafood and Shellfish Recipes Organized by Type of FishAt the end of a long day (or a long week), kicking back with some nachos can be like taking a mini vacation.

But even better than that is when the nachos are made with still warm tortilla chips fresh from the pan in all their corn-y goodness.

Although these tortilla chips are technically semi-homemade because you start with a package of small soft tortillas to save time, these are a truly wonderful upgrade from the dry tortilla chips usually found in the snack aisle.

(If you’d prefer to make your corn tortillas from scratch with masa harina, you might try this homemade corn tortilla recipe here.)

Mexican and Tex-Mex food is more popular than ever, so you can find the soft corn tortillas you need in either the international or bread aisle of most grocery stores and supermarkets, or at your local latino market.

Warning: once you’ve fried up your own tortillas, those packaged corn chips just won’t satisfy you quite the way they used to.

Below is a delicious step-by-step recipe for Homemade Tortilla Chips With Seafood Nachos from the folks at Macheesmo that is the perfect excuse to enjoy some richly flavored warm tortillas while you relax.

Ingredients For the Tortillas:

12 small corn tortillas cut into 6. (Makes 72 chips)
