There are two people in this world of ours. Nacho Cheese Doritos lovers and Cool Ranch Doritos lovers. I happen to be a Cool Ranch lover! My mom used to buy the lunch sized bags of chips for our lunches and it was always the BEST day when that shiny blue bag was waiting for me. Surprisingly these chips are super easy to make at home and you probably already have everything to make them! Throw these with a PB&J and some chocolate chip cookies and your back at the fourth grade lunch tables!
- uncooked small tortillas
- 2 (1 ounce) packets dry Ranch seasoning
- 1 tablespoon paprika
- 1 teaspoon ground garlic
- 1 teaspoon ground onion
- 1 teaspoon salt
- canola oil for frying
- Heat oil in a dutch oven or deep fryer and heat to 350F. You want about 2 inches of oil minimum.
- Cut the uncooked tortillas into wedges, like pizza slices.
- In a bowl, mix together the ranch seasoning, paprika, garlic, onion, and salt. The seasoning works best super fine, so you can pulse in a blender if you would like, but its optional and I didn’t.
- Working in batches, fry the tortillas until crispy, about 3 minutes per batch. I used tongs to press the tortillas down one at a time to let some of the air out, otherwise they can puff up very easily. Be careful with this step because the oil can bubble up.
- Place the fried tortillas on a paper towel lined plate and sprinkle with seasoning. Toss to combine, then sprinkle the flip side. You want to do this right after removing from the oil. Allow to cool.
- Repeat with the rest of the tortillas. This will make quite a bit of tortillas for the amount of seasoning.
- Store chips in an airtight container for up to two weeks. Enjoy!
