I so missed the boat with this recipe.

Yesterday was National Tortilla Chips Day, but being out of state on vacation the last 7 days threw off my editorial calendar…so I’m a bit late with the corn chip confetti.


The good news is that you can celebrate the holiday any day! This fresh, delicious Blueberry Salsa with Homemade Tortilla Chips is a snack meant for every day, not just one!

I’m a big tortilla chip lover. Salsa, hummus, queso dip, bean dip…whatever is dippable, my chips are in.

Until now, though, I’d never made my own chips.

I mean, it’s way easier to buy an oversized bag and just dig in, right? I’m all about instant gratification.

BUT. Hubby bought some corn tortillas by accident a few weeks ago, and I’m a faithful flour tortilla kinda gal…I didn’t want them to go to waste, so I figured it was time to try my hand at homemade chips.

EASY with a loud, capital E.

I really need to stop using the “I don’t have time” excuse, because I could easily prep a big batch of these in time for a party or get-together.

And the salsa? Could NOT be simpler. Subtract the garlic and tomato from an ordinary salsa, toss in some blueberries, and bam! It’s a wonderfully fresh and different take on everyone’s favorite dip.

Blueberry Salsa with Homemade Tortilla Chips

Ingredients

    Tortilla Chips
  • 3/4-1 cup cooking oil
  • 12 corn tortillas
  • Kosher salt
  • Blueberry Salsa
  • 1 cup fresh blueberries, 1/4 c. left whole
  • 1/4 red onion, diced
  • 1 jalapeno pepper, seeded and diced
  • 3 sweet peppers, seeded and diced
  • 1/3 cup cilantro leaves
  • 1 teaspoon lime zest
  • Juice of 2 limes

Instructions

    Tortilla Chips
  1. Heat deep fryer to 350 degrees F, or pour oil into a cold medium skillet to a depth of 1/8 to 1/4 of an inch and heat. Do not allow the oil to get so hot that it smokes.
  2. Cut desired amount of tortillas in 6 triangles. Line a large plate with paper towels.
  3. Place a handful of tortilla triangles into the hot oil, in a single layer. Use tongs or a slotted spoon to distribute the triangles evenly. Fry for about 2 minutes, until the chips just begin to become golden and firm.
  4. Using tongs or slotted spoon, remove the chips from the oil and place on the paper-towel-lined plate. Sprinkle with desired amount of salt, and place another paper towel on the top of the chips.
  5. Repeat with remaining chips, working in batches, until all are fried.
  6. Blueberry Salsa
  7. Combine all ingredients in a medium bowl. Toss to combine. Serve with freshly fried tortilla chips.
