Tortatos chips are the miraculous fusion of red potato and white corn. The hybrid chips have a very unique texture, that reminds us much more of a tortilla chip than a potato chip. In fact, if we are being technical here, we would probably describe these more appropriately as a potato crisp and tortilla chip combo due to their inclusion of potato flakes as opposed to fried slices of potato (which is what we use to define a potato chip).
