  • 9 white corn tortilla shells
  • 1 to 2 tablespoons bacon fat warmed
  • 1 lime
  • 2 teaspoons kosher salt


  • Preheat oven to 350°.
  • Measure out two teaspoons of kosher salt into a small bowl.
  • Slice lime in half and juice, yielding approximately 1/4 cup. Add the lime juice to the kosher salt and stir, set aside.
  • Brush both sides of the tortillas with warm bacon grease. Then cut them into fourths; arrange half of the tortilla pieces on a sheet pan, making sure they don't over lap.
  • Then dot each triangle with the lime/salt mixture.
  •  Bake in preheated oven for 10-12 minutes or until crispy, rotating the pan half way through baking time.
  • Repeat with the second batch. Season with more kosher salt to taste and serve with my *plug* Homemade Salsa!!
