Corn chips are tasty snacks made from cornmeal that is either baked or fried; these chips are typically shaped into small scoops, rolls or noodles like the famous and oldest brand Fritos. Corn chip snacks have a strong aroma and taste of roasted corn, they have a thick and hard texture that is very crunchy and are seasoned heavily with salt. Tortilla chips are made slightly different from the American style corn chips because they are made using the nixtamalization process which means that the corn used to make the snacks is soaked and cooked in limewater and hulled, giving the tortilla chips a mild flavor and aroma, as well as a less rigid texture then the American snacks.
Corn chips can either be eaten alone right out from the bag or accompanied with a dip, especially the scoop style of chips. There is a wide selection of corn chip based snacks available on the market that is very popular in both the U.S. and Mexico, and both have a great and unique taste.
