Sourdough Tortilla Chips

We LOVE to eat Mexican at our house.  Chips and salsa are among our favorites in the food category.  We have not been eating as many chips as we used to just because we are cutting back some on grains that are not soaked our soured.  On Friday nights Whole Foods makes some really good fresh tortilla chips.  However, the ingredient list is long and not just good old fashioned ingredients.  We have had them several times and I LOVE them.  We rarely go to Whole Foods because it is not close.   I decided to make sourdough tortilla chips.  I really wanted chips and sourdough chips sounded so good that I had to try them.  I figured that my homemade chips would taste a lot better than those other store bought ones.  So, I made them.  YUM!!!!!!  I am telling you, these things are WONDERFUL!!!  I hope there are some left when Michael gets home.  :)
First of all I made sourdough tortillas.  I made these a few days ago and stored them in the fridge.  
I can see where these would be handy to have on hand for lots of things.  They are really good and VERY easy to make.  Then I cut them in wedges.
 
I fried mine in coconut oil.  I used expeller pressed since it does not taste like coconut.  I used my cast iron skillet, which I use for almost everything.  I used an 8″ one so I would not have to use much oil.  
 After I browned them and let them crisp up I put them on a piece of paper towel.  I don’t always have paper towels, so in that case I would use a non fuzzy towel.  
As soon as I took them out of the oil and put them on the towel, I sprinkled them with Himalayan salt.  I let them cool and put them in a bowl.   
   You have to try these!!!!
