Place lemon juice in small bowl. Whisk in oil and season to taste with salt and black pepper.

For Tortilla Strips: Cut corn tortilla into strips. Press a corn tortilla into a large ladle. Holding it in place with a slightly smaller spoon, fry in deep fat (375°F-190°C) until tortilla is crisp. Tortilla strips are also pretty containers for guacamole or other dips and sauces.
