While many have credited Rebecca Webb Carranza as the inventor and innovator of the tortilla chip, the Tamalina Milling Company claims its family's tortilla company made the famous corn chips long before that, Arellano wrote in Taco USA.
Corn chips are made from corn meal which has been mixed with salt and water. The dough is then extruded (shaped by pushing hrough a die, like pasta) and fried. Here, the corn meal is mixed with water and salt, but the dough is shaped into rounds that are then cooked on a cast-iron or other heavy skillet.
Certain components of corn chips may benefit general well-being and cardiovascular health in particular, which is a common concern among residents of senior living. In addition to being delicious, when it comes to munching, corn chips can be a diet-healthy option when enjoyed in moderation.
