Paqui Gourmet Tortilla Chips

by Anne Paddock

Some of the most basic simple foods are the hardest to make. Consider tortilla chips which are primarily made of three ingredients: corn, oil, and salt. How hard can it be to make really great tasting crunchy tortilla chips? Well, according to many tasters who have snacked on the mass market commercial offerings, the answer is “pretty hard.”

The secret to great tasting tortilla chips is to use high quality fresh tortillas fried in oil hot enough to cook them to a perfect crisp but not so hot as to darken the chips. If the oil is not hot enough, the chips will be greasy and if the oil is too hot, the chips will be overdone making the corn flavor an afterthought.

Paqui_TortillasPAQUI – based out of Austin, Texas – starts with handcrafted tortillas. Using their own recipe, the company created what many Texans say are the freshest, most delicious tortillas on the market. PAQUI then set their sights on creating the perfect tortilla chip which they make with four non-GMO ingredients: stone ground corn, canola oil, sea salt, and a trace of lime.Paqui_Tortilla_Chips_Sea_Salt

Tortilla chips by PAQUI are the lightest, crispiest, and best tasting tortilla chips on the market. Sold in 6 ounce bags (with about 70 chips), the tortilla chips have the perfect light seasoning with just 80 mg of sodium per 1 ounce serving. Bite into a crunchy PAQUI Tortilla Chip and the flavor screams corn – not salt. Whip up a bowl of guacamole or salsa, and you’re all set.Paqui_Tortilla_Chips

PAQUI Tortilla Chips are sold nationwide at grocery stores for about $3 – $4 per 6 ounce bag. To read more about PAQUI Tortilla Chips and the other flavored tortilla chips the company makes, go to the PAQUI website:  www.paqui.com.Paqui_Tortilla_Chips
