Blanco Niño Ancient Grain Blue Corn Tortilla Chips with Toasted Amaranth - 170g


Notify me when back in stock

Amaranth and blue corn are ancient grains so tasty and nutritious that they have been held with reverence as staples of the Aztec diet for thousands of years. As a homage to the communities and traditions that inspired our Tortilleria, we married these grains to create the loveliest of tortilla chips. Together they have a unique, subtly sweet and earthy flavour. We are proud to be able to work with farmers in Milpa Alta (meaning high corn field) which overlooks Lake Texcoco. This basin is home to the ancient Aztec capital city of Tenochtitlan, known today as Mexico City.

Inspired by Mexico
In pursuit of the perfect tortilla, I set out on what would become quite a serendipitous journey across Mexico. Visiting the milpas, molinos and tortillerias, I picked up a new nickname - Blanco Niño - and learnt the secret to making truly authentic tortillas. It's this thousand-year-old recipe that I brought back to Ireland to create the chips you hold in your hand now.
Traditionally Mexican. Unexpectedly Irish.
Philip Martin, Founder

Made the Aztec way
We select the very best non-GMO corn, which we cook then steep overnight, before grinding into a dough called masa using our hand-carved, Mexican volcanic stones.
While still hot, this masa is shaped and baked into tortillas. These are then cut and lightly fried into the most delicious authentic tortilla chips.
