        Wow.. those look great!! Perfect to satisfy those crunch cravings. Veggies and meat just don't cut it for me when it comes to eating dips. Thanks!

          Corn is a grain - not Primal

          Oil is omega 6 - highly inflammatory

          To conclude, tortilla chips are not on the Primal Blueprint eating plan. If you are doing 80/20 then perhaps you can consider them in the 20%. But otherwise, in the interest of health, it's best to avoid them.

            It's used in treating corn.
            Calcium hydroxide is quite often used in the food industry. But lime the citrus is quite often used to flavor corn. It is my guess that in the tortillas it is lime the citrus. Lime the rock derivative is usually listed as calcium hydroxide.

              I am proud that I can go to a Mexican restaurant and only eat a few tortilla chips, or just pass.

              Corn for tortillas and tortilla chips is processed the traditional way with lime. It makes the corn more digestible. IMHO, 20% if you can just eat a few. LOL.

              I would rather save my 20% for other things, like the tortillas themselves.

                By definition, it is from a grain and therefore not primal (and NOT good for you).
                Primal eating in a nutshell: If you are hungry, eat Primal food until you are satisfied (not stuffed). Then stop. Wait until you're hungry again. Repeat.

                  OK, tortillas and tortilla chips are 20% not primal. Organic, traditionally produced ones are far better than SAD. Do 100% if you want. I don't want. It's somewhere above 80% and less than 100% or not at all.

                    Lazy chip-eaters, sub in plantain chips instead.

                    Just as addicting but no grain and sometimes no bad oil.

                    You're welcome!

                      My specialty is home made blue corn tortillas. I fry them in coconut oil. Blue corn, water, salt. I gave them up for about 8 months while I was losing weight, but now indulge in them once or twice a week. That's my biggest source of grains, and worth it.

                        You can get organic tortilla chips at Costco as well...it is good to know there is some not GMO corn still out there.
                        I still won't eat them but still nice to know.
                        Eating primal is not a diet, it is a way of life.
