Lemon Fuego Chips

Written by: nicole ditommaso

Lemon Fuego Chips are a fiery twist on traditional tortilla chips. They're perfect for snacking or dipping into salsa, guacamole, or hummus, adding a zesty burst of flavor to every bite.


  • 10-12 yellow corn tortillas (dried out are best)
  • 3/4 to 1 cup avocado oil
  • Lemon Fuego seasoning to taste


Step 1

Prepare: Cut tortillas into 4 or 6 triangles depending how large you’d like your chips. Line a paper towel on a resting plate to absorb excess oil after cooking your chips.

Step 2

Preheat the Oil: Add avocado oil to a deep pot and heat to 350 degrees or until sizzle. 

Step 3

Cook: Add a small quantity of tortillas to the oil using tongs or a slotted spoon. Do not overcrowd to allow each batch to submerge in the oil and cook to a golden brown, about 2 minutes. Transfer cooked chips to a resting plate lined with paper towels. Season with Lemon Fuego seasoning to taste.

Step 4

Serve: Serve with your favorite salsa, hummus or guacamole.
