We are proud to bring you organically grown blue corn chips made with some of the finest non hydrogenated organic oils in the market. These chips are very thin and crispy with the delicious flavor that blue corn brings to your palate. That is the reason the Aztec Indians prayed and glorified the Goddess of the corn Chicomecoatl to thank her for providing such a delectable crop. Corn was so important to the Aztecs that she was also known as the goddess of nourishment, and they depicted her carrying the sun as a shield. Blue corn has a coarser sweeter and nuttier taste than other types of corns - delicious! The preparation of nixtamal was a daily task for the housewife and even now in country parts of Mexico it still occupies up to six hours of a woman's day. The kernels were steeped in lime overnight to loosen the hull then boiled and skinned and finally ground to dough by crushing the kernels between a grooved stone roller and a metate (a lava rock stone slab). The nixtamal was usually made into tortillas. Taste this Blue Corn Chips and you will be transported to the Aztecs world, and you also will pray to Chicomecoatl for more. Good for you! We only use the best non-hydrogenated oils for its healthy characteristics and valuable source of vitamins and delicious flavors. At Xochitl our mission has always been to provide the best and unique all natural products made with authentic ancient recipes. Xochitl means flower in Nahuatl the language of the Aztecs.
