This Small Batch, we partnered with our friends at Nixta Taqueria, masters of nixtamalization, to create tortilla chips using a keystone ingredient of our Mexican culture—corn. Now introducing our limited-edition, cultural collaboration:
Our teams got together to practice the techniques behind the ancient art of stone-grinding corn and nixtamalization. We began using yellow corn masa for primary trials (pictured below), but eventually decided we'd be using blue and red organic heirloom corn for this Small Batch!
Nixtamalization is the process of cooking corn kernels in lime and water and then stone grounding to create flour for tortillas—or, in this case, delicious totopos (tortilla chips)!
With Nixta’s tips and tricks, these gluten free, dairy free, and vegan artisanal chips were created—straight from our Siete kitchen.
This Small Batch offering is our way of inviting even more people to the table, with an ingredient and process that has been a staple of Mexican culture for generations. After all, our family believes there’s no meal or occasion that can’t be made better by a big bag or bowl of crunchy tortilla chips!
We are proud to share, highlight, and present these Siete x Nixta Heirloom Corn Totopos as a true embodiment of the cultural collaboration between our familia and Nixta Taqueria. We hope you’re hungry!
