Contrary to what I thought, tortilla chips are made of corn and not potatoes. Potato chips are very popular so anybody might think that the two chips are made of the same raw materials. It was invented by American, not Mexican. The technology of making tortilla chips started by cutting and frying tortillas.
Most of the tortilla chips sold are manufactured commercially in large scale. It is almost impossible to come up with uniform triangular tortilla chips with home methods.
This manufacturing method starts from corn kernels as raw materials. Corns are mixed with lime to kill any invading microorganisms and loosen the corn shell. Shell are removed. Passed through grinding, mixing of other ingredients, dough mixing, chip molding, frying, flavoring and packing.
The second method below uses maze flour as ingredients. Other methods are the same as above.
