Grab some guacamole or maybe some salsa, Monday is National Tortilla Chip Day.

Millions of people across the country love tortilla chips, so it’s a great excuse to open a bag. Tortilla chips are usually made from corn tortillas, cut into wedges and then fried.

They were originally known in Mexico as tostados, but were first mass-produced in Los Angeles in the 1940s.

Of course, you can also use tortilla chips to make nachos, usually served with melted cheese and other toppings, like meat, salsa and olives.
