A tortilla chip is a type of snack food made from corn tortillas, which are cut into wedges or other shapes and then fried or baked. Corn tortillas are made from nixtamalized corn (corn that has been treated with lime to remove the husk), water, and sometimes salt.

The process of making tortilla chips involves cutting the tortillas into pieces, frying them in oil until they become crisp and golden brown, or baking them for a lighter option. The result is a crunchy, slightly salty snack that is often triangular in shape, though they can be found in various shapes and sizes. Tortilla chips have a distinct corn flavor and are commonly served with dips such as salsa, guacamole, or cheese dip. They are a popular food item in Mexican cuisine and have become widely consumed internationally, especially in the United States and Canada, as a snack, appetizer, or ingredient in various dishes.
