Corn Chip Day is on it's Way

National Corn Chip Day is on it's way everyone. This Food Holidays is celebrated on January 29th each and every year in the United States. 

Now this holiday is always celebrated by eating corn chips with a variety of dips / but don't confuse this holiday with National Chip and Dip Day. National Chip and Dip Day occurs in the United States annually on March 23. Tostitos-brand tortilla chips, a major U.S. brand, observed the day in 2015 by providing coupons for free dip for interested customers named "Chip". ha!

Now.... just so you know. There is a difference between corn chips and tortilla chips. We always get them confused because they are both a corn-based chip. A real corn chip is pictured above. We talk a little bit about the difference below.

Corn-Based Chips:
Chips and salsa, typically served using tortilla or corn chips is a common type of chips and dip dish that gained significant popularity in the United States in the late 1980s. Chips and guacamole, also typically served with corn-based chips is another type, as well as chips and bean dip. Seven-layer dip and tortilla chips is another corn-based chip combination, as is chile con queso, an appetizer or side dish of melted cheese and chili pepper typically served in Tex-Mex restaurants as a sauce for nachos.

About the Corn Chip:
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 seasoned with salt. 
In the US, Fritos is one of the oldest and most widely recognized brands of corn chips.
While 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 corn chips.
Corn chips are usually 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, Frito pie, is made with corn chips and chili. In some areas, it is popular to pour the chili into a bag of corn chips and eat the mixture directly from the bag.
