Really Easy Homemade Fritos

Simple Homemade Fritos. Recipe at

Corn chips from scratch? It’s simple, I tell you. Five ingredients, 20 minutes. Awesome.

Serves 2
2/3 cup masaca (corn flour)
1/4 tsp. kosher salt
1/4 tsp. chili powder
1/4 tsp. garlic powder
1/2 to 2/3 cup water

Mix ingredients by hand, starting with 1/2 cup water, adding more water if needed if dough feels is too crumbly to handle.

Take half the dough, place inside a silicone baking mat or between two layers of cling wrap and roll out about 1/8″ thick. Transfer to a cutting board. Slice into 1×2″ rectangles using a pizza cutter. Repeat with remaining dough.

The Really Delicious Method
Cook at 375 for 10-15 minutes until crunchy. Sprinkle with salt, cool and serve.

The FREAKING Delicious Method
Working in batches, fry in 350 degree oil for 30 seconds. Drain and sprinkle with a tiny bit more kosher salt before serving.

      Let me know how it goes! I haven’t played with the recipe since I first posted it and am always open to tweaks.

    Question: your first ‘delicious’ method merely says ‘cook at 375′.. but no other details. Do you use a greased baking sheet? ungreased? Did you line your sheet with parchment or foil? Just wanted to see what method was successful for you.

      Thanks for your comment. I use a pizza stone which doesn’t need greasing. For other baking dishes I’d lightly oil it first.
