Flour tortilla strips are deep-fried then coated with cinnamon and sugar for a quick, crunchy snack.
INGREDIENTS (for 3 servings):
- 1 cup white sugar
- 1 teaspoon ground cinnamon
- 1/4 teaspoon ground nutmeg
- 10 (8 inch) flour tortillas
- 3 cups oil for frying
Combine sugar, cinnamon and nutmeg in a large resealable plastic bag. Seal and toss to mix.
Heat oil in deep-fryer or deep skillet to 375 degrees F (190 degrees C). Fry 4 or 5 tortilla strips for 30 seconds on a side, until golden brown. Drain on paper towels.
While still warm, place fried tortillas in bag and shake to coat with sugar mixture. Serve at once or store in an airtight container.
We have determined the nutritional value of oil for frying based on a retention value of 10% after cooking. The exact amount may vary depending on cook time and temperature, ingredient density, and the specific type of oil used.
