TORTILLA CHIPS DAY – 24/02/2018

(NACHOS DAY)

 A tortilla chip is a Mexican snack food made from corn tortillas, which are cut into wedges and then fried—or baked (alternatively they may be discs pressed out of corn masa then fried or baked). Corn tortillas are made of corn, vegetable oil, salt, and water. The corn flour used to make the tortilla is known as ‘MASA HARINA’. These are famous in TEX-MEX cuisine.

HISTORY

Rebecca Webb Carranza popularized the triangle-shaped tortilla chip in the 1940s as a way to make use of misshapen tortillas rejected from the automated tortilla manufacturing.
