Chicas Corn Chips aren’t just made of corn and sea salt. They are made from love and laughs around the kitchen table, handwritten recipes on weathered scraps of paper, and the aroma of freshly made chips and salsa flowing through the entire neighborhood. When you dive into a bag of Chicas Corn Chips, you are opening up a bag of history and authentic flavors. With just six ingredients, they may seem simple, but they pack a big ‘WOW’ with the perfect balance of crunch and flavor.

Why Chicas?

Our story begins with the founder, Irlanda Montes, and her dream to share her mother’s family recipes. This dream brought a time of laughter and joy as her sisters worked along side her making small batches of tortilla chips and salsa. If you walked into the kitchen, you wouldn’t be able to figure out anyone’s name as all the sisters referred to each other as ‘Chica’ (‘girl’ in Spanish).

Today, Chicas continues to be family operated. Irlanda, along with her husband and daughters, take pride in making and serving you the same wholesome and delicious tortilla chips and salsa shared at their own family gatherings.
