IT’S NATIONAL TORTILLA CHIP DAY!
Did you know that Doritos were invented at Disneyland as a way to use up old tortillas?
Tortilla chips are the quintessential opener to Tex-Mex cuisine. Endless baskets are run out to your table by people who realize they are giving away free food. I wonder how many people have shown up to a Mexican restaurant, gotten a bunch of free chips, and just left? There’s probably a special circle of hell for that.
SP‘s favorite tortilla chips can be found at El Parian, one of the best Mexican restaurants in the Twin Cities.These chips have a density and crispity that are unparalleled by any store-bought chips. They’re hearty and delicious, and just a bit salty. El Parian serves their chips with a red salsa and a white ranchero sauce. Both are excellent.
Chips are great. Hooray!
Tomorrow is 3 CHs: Clam CHowder day, CHili day, and CHocolate covered nuts day!
