A tortilla chip, also called a corn chip, is a triangular-shaped, salted and crispy piece of corn tortilla. Traditional tortilla chips have their origins in the pre-Hispanic cultures of Mexico, where they were known as "totopochtli", a word that means golden or crunchy in Nahuatl. In Mexico, tortilla chips are still called totopos and are traditionally made from a tortilla that is cut into triangles and fried. Tortilla chips have many uses, for example, as a garnish or topping for other dishes, to dip in salsa, guacamole or to enjoy plain. Topped with cheese, tortilla chips are known as nachos.
