It's the little things that really make the cafe rio salad, and in my opinion it's the tortilla strips, and i'm sure my kids would agree with me that they are a necessity. These are super easy to make and they just add a great touch to the whole cafe rio salad.
oil for frying
Cut tortillas into strips using a pizza cutter. You can cut 2-3 at a time pretty easily. Heat oil in a large frying pan. Place strips into hot oil and fry until they become crispy. When nice and crispy, remove from oil and place on a paper towel. Sprinkle with salt after each batch.
