    I have been giving tortilla chips some thought today... Stay with me on this one...
    Tortilla chips come from tortillas (?), which can be made from flour, and I'm reading on this forum there is almond flour, which I'd never heard of before, so this leads me to wonder if there are some sort of almond flour tortilla chips out there?? If not, can somebody please make some that I can eat with salsa? That would be great, thanks.

    Thanks! I may have to try making some, although I'd prefer just buying them seeing as how I'm a little lazy. Has anyone ever seen some at Whole Foods?

    I haven't tried these cheese crisps, but they look like something you could eat salsa with: http://www.joyfulabode.com/2010/04/2...crisps-recipe/

    I also love kale chips, but they are to thin and flaky for dipping.

    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.
