White Corn Tortilla ChipsMADE BY TORTILLERIA MI NINA IN EVERETT, MASSACHUSETTS
Acclaimed Boston chef Jamie Mammano got the recipe for his outstanding white corn chips from his mother-in-law in Tijuana, Mexico (because mamma knows best!). Mammano grinds non-GMO white corn, water and lime with hand-carved volcanic stones – a traditional labor-intensive process known as “nixtamalization.” Then, he and his team roll this mixture into tortillas, which are baked, hand-quartered and fried to make chips.
They’re perfectly crunchy, with just the right sprinkling of salt to bring out the mild sweetness of the ground corn. They're so good, we'd even eat them straight—even better, we've got quite a stash of tasty indie salsas, hot sauces and savory spreads just begging for an amazing chip.
