Cinnamon Sugar Tortilla Chips

These chips are a party favorite! I've recently made these for several BBQs and get-togethers, and they were very popular. They're simple to make as well, and a quick snack to throw together at the last minute. 

1 package corn tortillas

In a deep pot, add in a thick layer of either canola or vegetable oil, and heat on a medium temperature until hot. Meanwhile, cut your tortillas into either 4 or 8 triangles. (Stack them to cut many at once.) Line a large bowl with paper towels for preparation. In a bowl or Tupperware, mix an even amount of cinnamon and sugar. Add in about 1 tsp or 2 of salt. Mix all together. When oil is hot, place in as many tortilla triangles that can fit in the pot. (Don't overcrowd) Let tortillas brown on each side (flip after the sides get brown) usually for about 1 minute. Scoop chips out with a straining utensil. Shake off excess oil and place into paper towel-lined bowl. Sprinkle the cinnamon, sugar and salt mixture over hot chips. Coat both sides. Repeat until all chips and fried and coated.
