Tortilla Chips in Nicaragua



  • A big surprise for us, traveling in Nicaragua, is to find how wildly different tortilla chips are here. Go into any restaurant or grocery store or corner shop and get tortilla chips and you are going to get something completely unlike what you would expect in the US, Mexico, Panama or other part of the world.

    The chips here are extremely hard, generally hard enough that biting into them can be very difficult, with little flavor. Be prepared, ordering nachos in Nicaragua will not be the experience that you were expecting.
