Tortilla Chips

Tortilla Chips

Tortilla chips are made from corn tortilla flat cakes. The tortilla flatbreads are cut into small triangles and then baked in fat. Tortilla chips were invented in a Mexican delicatessen and tortilla factory in Los Angeles at the end of the 1940s. The owner Rebecca Carranza was looking for an idea how to use the failed Tortilla Fladen, which her automatic Tortilla machine could no longer process, further. So she cut the Tortilla Fladen into small triangles and deep fried them. So she sold the resulting tortilla chips as a snack. Rebecca Carranza was awarded the Golden Tortilla Award in 1994. She died in January 2006 at the age of 98. Tortilla chips are now made from yellow, white and blue corn flour. Tortilla chips are often served as a snack or appetizer with dips, such as various salsas or guacamole, serve as a side dish to Mexican or Tex-Mex salads such as taco salad or Chilies. Served one tortilla chips with melted cheese become nachos from it. Often cheese and spices are added to the tortilla chips. Tortilla chips should not be confused with corn chips. Corn chips are made directly from pressed corn flour and not from a tortilla flat bread.
