Dallas, TX-based Truco Enterprises, Inc., which makes the retail line of On The Border branded foods, has come out with a new variety of tortilla chip called, "Cantina Thins".
According to the company, the Cantina Thins involves a process of choosing select, whole-kernel white corn, and then cooking it in large kettles until tender. The softened corn is then stone ground into a fine proprietary blended masa, which is pressed into ultra-thin white corn tortillas. It's then lightly baked, and hand-cut into irregular triangles.
The whole concept of having "ultra thin" tortilla chips wasn't exactly explained to me. I tend to think that it's way to reduce fat and carbs while still maintaining the same shape and size of a standard chip.
I don't think it lends itself well to scooping out salsa and dip, however.
