Picture of Easy Homemade Nacho Chips

It is very easy to prepare and requires only 5 Ingredients. In under 30 minutes you will have a bowl of corn chips staring at you and waiting to be gobbled! :p
Let us take a look at how it is made!

Step 1: Collect Your Ingredients

Ingredients: 1 cup maize (corn) flour, 1/4 cup wheat flour, 1 tsp salt, 1 tsp cumin powder. Combine them and knead with 3/4 cup water, little by little to form a dough.

Step 2: Work-in-Progress

Divide into four parts. Flatten the dough on a cling film/plastic sheet. Prick it with a fork to prevent them from bloating up in oil. With the help of a knife cut in your favorite shape. Lift each piece carefully and drop them in hot oil.  Fry until golden and crisp!

Step 3: Serve in Your Own Style

Serve it with your favorite dips or cover them up in cheese sauce!

my question could i bake em in a high temp oven like 450 500 and coat with oil? and can i cook em in a pan and make em as regular tortillas? or would they not come out as good?

For bake: Grease your baking tray with oil. Bake them at 200 degree centigrade for 10-12 minutes. See if you are able to flip them over easily. Bake for another 3-5 minutes or until crisp. Not necessary to brush them with oil. I will add a photo of the baked ones. The taste and look is slightly different.

I do not recommend cooking in a pan, if you are looking for a nachos like texture. Otherwise yes, they turn out like flat bread. You can use them to make Quesadillas.

Thank you for your question! I got to relish these golden crisps again. :) I hope I have cleared your doubts.
