    tortella and nicho

    I was trying to pick up the names of food in the supermarket. I found the crisps named tortella and nicho which looking the same. Are they really the same thing? I know the spelling are wrong, please correct.

    Thank you.

    Re: tortella and nicho

    Tortillas can be soft circles in the refrigerator section made of flour or corn. Tortilla chips are often triangles but sometimes round and are crispy.

    Nachos are when you have tortilla chips and (at least) melted cheese, though you can have peppers, olives, sour cream, salsa, beef, and more.

    Nacho chips and tortilla chips are the same.

    The soft tortillas are always in my fridge. They make a nice alternative to bread.
