Heat the vegetable oil in a large skillet over medium heat.
Stack the tortillas on a cutting board and cut the stack into eight pieces.
When the oil is hot, add ⅓ of the tortilla pieces and cook, turning once with tongs for 2-3 minutes until lightly browned and becoming crisp. Use tongs to remove the tortillas to a paper towel lined plate, and sprinkle with salt as desired.
Repeat with the remaining tortilla pieces, until they are all fried.
FOR THE SAUCE:
Combine all ingredients in a blender or food processor and pulse until completely smooth.
Wipe the pan clean that was used for frying the tortillas.
Pour the sauce into the pan and warm over medium-low heat.
Add the fried tortilla pieces, stirring gently and cook for 2-3 more minutes until the tortillas are coated in sauce and becoming soft.
Remove from the heat and serve immediately.
NOTE: You if you prefer green sauce, you can use our SALSA VERDE Recipe. Keep in mind that sauce takes 15 minutes to make. So, make it first before your fry your tortillas. Then, simply pour into the pan and warm as you would do with the red sauce.NOTE: These are best eaten the same day that they are made. You can reheat them, however they will be much more soft than they were the first time.NOTE: Serve with refried or black beans, seasoned cooked and shredded chicken, ground beef taco meat, sour cream, onions, cheese, and any of your other favorite toppings!
