Tortilla chips are a staple of many a meal and can be enjoyed in a variety of ways.

National Tortilla Chip Day on February 24th celebrates a crunchy chip that provides a ton of ways to enjoy it! The day also shares the chip’s history and many ways to enjoy this delicious snack food.

Everyone loves tortilla chips. We most commonly served them with salsa, queso, guacamole, cheese dips, or other dips. Tortilla chips are made from corn tortillas cut into wedges and then fried.

Even though tortilla chips have always been considered to be Mexican food, known as tostadas they were first mass-produced in Los Angeles in the late 1940s.

Another favorite dish made with tortilla chips is nachos.  Ignacio “Nacho” Anaya created the dish we call nachos around the year 1943. The tortilla chips are served with melted or shredded cheese. Additional toppings are often added such as meat, salsa, refried beans, tomatoes, diced onion, lettuce, olives, jalapenos, guacamole, and sour cream.

Our staff sampled some different popular dips with tortilla chips to see which one was best. Check out the Tik Tok video of our taste test here.
