Did you know?: Although first mass-produced in Los Angeles in the late 1940s, tortilla chips are considered to be a Mexican food, known as tostados. Though usually made of yellow corn, they can also be made of white, blue, or red corn. The corn chip recipe was brought to the U.S. from Mexico by Texas businessman Elmer Doolin, though the triangle-shaped tortilla chip was popularized by Rebecca Webb Carranza as a way to make use of misshapen tortillas rejected from the automated tortilla manufacturing machine that she and her husband used at their Mexican delicatessen and tortilla factory in southwest Los Angeles. Carranza found that the discarded tortillas, cut into triangles and fried, were a popular snack, and she sold them for a dime a bag at the El Zarape Tortilla Factory. In 1994, Carranza received the Golden Tortilla award for her contribution to the Mexican food industry. In 2003, the state of Texas made the tortilla chip the official state snack!

This celebration kicks off the NNJC "Just For Fun" event series dedicated to the best part of geocaching - sharing good times with great friends. So bring your whole family and muggle buddies alike to show them how much fun this game can be!
