  National Corn Chip Day!
What is a Corn Chip?
"A corn chip is a snack food made from cornmeal fried in oil or baked, usually in the shape of a small noodle or scoop." "Corn chips are thick, rigid and very crunchy." "Corn chips have the strong aroma and flavor of roasted corn, and are often heavily dusted with salt."

"In the US, Fritos is one of the oldest and most widely recognized brands of corn chips."

"While American-style corn chips and tortilla chips are both made from corn, the corn in tortilla chips is subjected to the nixtamalization process, resulting in a milder flavor and aroma, and a less rigid texture." "Tortilla chips also tend to be larger, thinner, and less salty than American-style corn chips."

"Corn chips are most often eaten alone or with a chip dip." "They are a common ingredient in homemade and commercial party mix." "In the Southwestern US, a popular dish is made by adding chili to a bag of corn chips and eating the mixture from the bag."
