On the Border - Cantina Thins

On the Border Cantina ThinsDallas, 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.

I tried these thin On The Border chips and thought they scooped just fine - they are really light - similar to the ones in good Mexican restaurants.

I love them!!!! They taste awsome and I love the 0g trans/sat fat and the low sodium. I love a lighter chip and these are so good tasting I eat them without salsa most of the time. But when I do use salsa I put them on the chips with a little shredded cheese and pop in the microwave.. yummmmy!!
