“This is a great appetizer or weekend snack!For this recipe I like to drain the salsa, I just drain it through a medium strainer as it will tend to make the tortillas soggy. The tortillas can be fryed up to 8 hours ahead, and let stand at room temperature. Prepare in two seperate baking sheets, or half the recipe and use one baking sheet. Prep time does not include frying the tortillas.”
8 tortillas
