Very simple. You take corn tortillas and cut them into strips or triangles. Heat oil in a deep pan (I use peanut oil) to medium high. Place tortillas into the hot oil and fry until crisp and light golden. Remove with slotted spoon and drain on paper towels. Sprinkle with Kosher salt while still warm.

To make 'em really crisp up, dry them out a little first - cut in strips or triangles, lay them out on a cookie sheet and let them sit to 'air-dry' for a few hours. The moisture in the tortillas can absorb oil, and make your chips greasy and chewy.

:D Hey you guys! I think he means corn tortillas from scratch cause I seriously dont think he can get corn tortillas or the Masa Harina to make them with in China but probably can get corn meal maybe someone has a recipe.

Oh - duh! Sorry! Here's a link for making tortillas, and what the 'flour', or 'masa harina' is. Sorry!
