WHY WE LOVE NATIONAL TORTILLA CHIP DAY
They’re a social food
These crisp, delicious, corn treats are perfect for sharing with your friends — nothing makes a party like a bowl of salsa and a bag of tortilla chips. (Then again, they’re also an ideal snack for when you’re alone on your couch in your pajamas.)
Nachos without tortilla chips is just a gooey mess. Tortilla chips make the dish, and this dish is one of the best foods in existence. This alone makes the tortilla chip a national treasure.
They are the perfect vessel for any salsa
Mild. Medium. Strong. Corn. Peach. Chunky. Thin. The salty, crispy tortilla chip complements each of them, bringing out their unique flavors — and bringing them to our mouths.
