Would you believe that recipes using cream cheese can be found in cookbooks starting in the mid-eighteenth century? This creamy, savory spread gained popularity in the 1820s, with dairy farms in and around the Philadelphia area gaining a reputation for producing the best examples of this unique cheese. Cream cheese was made on family farms throughout the country, so quantities that were made and distributed were usually small. Cream cheese is most often used as a spread on bagels, bread, and crackers. Cream cheese is also an excellent choice for dip recipes for potato chips and other snack items. Cream cheese can also be used in salads. Cream cheese can be used for many recipes from sweet to savory cooking. Cream cheese is considered in the same category of ingredients as other milk products, from cream, milk, butter, and yogurt. It is also a popular addition to cheesecake recipes and to thicken sauce recipes making them creamy. Cream cheese is sometimes used in place of or along with butter for use in recipes.
The tortilla chip became a popular snack after Rebecca Webb Carranza was looking for a way to make use of the misshaped tortillas that were rejected from the tortilla-making machine that she and her husband used at their Mexican tortilla factory and Deli in southwest Los Angeles. She found that by using the discarded tortilla pieces that were cut into triangles and fried were a popular snack. She sold the tortilla snack for a dime a bag at the El Zarape Tortilla Factory. In 1994, she received the Golden Tortilla award for her contribution to the Mexican food industry. Tortilla chips are a popular snack food that is made from corn tortillas, which are cut into wedges and then fried. The snack recipe can also be baked. Corn tortillas are made of corn, vegetable oil, water, and salt.
