Achiote Chips

Achiote, or Annatto seed have a deep red pigmentation, and they are edible.  They are used to color a variety of foods, some surprising, like cheddar cheeze.  I know Cheddar is yellow, there is just a hint of Achiote in there.  I got these festive Tortillas at La Tapatia Meat Market in Carrollton Tx. and made chips.
We'll just cut them into quarters, and throw them in the fryer.
Cook them until they are crispy, and drain them on a paper towel.
Salt them when they are hot.
They are really good when they are hot out of the fryer.  Now I make Nachos...
Mmmm...  Nachos...
