OUR TORTILLA CHIPS


Tortilla chips that are made and taste
as originally intended.

Who’d have guessed corn tortilla chips could taste like corn…well, they should. Crunchy, morish, and so deliciously addictive, these humble little tortilla chips will take your taste buds from the beaches of the Yucatan to the hills of Central Mexico.

Not only do they taste great, but they also happen to be naturally gluten-free, vegan friendly and have absolutely no artificial ingredients.

CORN TORTILLAS


Our founder Phil returned from Mexico and quickly realised that authentic corn tortillas were hard to find outside of Mexico, so he set up Blañco Nino and made his own.

Blanco Niño have now sold over 30 million tortillas to top restaurants and chefs across Europe.

Using the same methods as the Aztecs, we create our tortillas by taking no shortcuts. Every farmer and ingredient we work with has been chosen with great care. Made using all-natural, non-GMO ingredients with no added preservatives, we are proud that our tortillas match the quality and taste of those found in Mexico.

OUR COOKING PROCESS


We make our tortillas the same way the Aztecs have been doing it for thousands of years. Using an ancient method known as Nixtamalisation. It takes time, but all good things do.

Whole corn is cooked then steeped overnight, before being ground into a dough (masa) using hand-carved, Mexican volcanic stones. This masa is shaped and baked into tortillas. We then leave the tortillas to rest overnight, before being hand-cut and lightly fried into our tortilla chips.

It takes three days from start to finish, but we think the result is worth the wait.

HERITAGE PRODUCERS


We are really lucky to be able to work with some amazing people and heritage producers in Mexico. We have loved collaborating with the people and initiatives that we believe in, and we think this shows in our tortillas and tortilla chips.

We’ve partnered with a social enterprise in Celestun, Yucatan, whose mission is to promote traditional and sustainable salt harvesting practices for our Lightly Salted flavour. Our Ancient Grain flavour features blue corn and Amaranth sourced from farmers in Milpa Alta. Our Chilli & Lime flavour features Ancho Chilli from a heritage farmer in Puebla.

RECIPE INSPIRATION


Tacos, tostadas, burritos…that’s how our journey began.

We’re looking forward to bringing you some of our favourite recipes from our travels across Mexico. All our recipes are over on our blog, including our founder Phil’s guacamole. Katie Sanderson also created a beautiful baba ganoush recipe. If you’re wondering what to do with our tortillas you could always try pork carnitas.
