That is the reason the Aztec Indians prayed and glorified the goddess of the corn Chicomecoatl to thank her for providing such a delectable crop. Corn was so important to the Aztecs that she was also known as the goddess of nourishment and they depicted her carrying the Sun as a shield. Blue corn has a coarser, sweeter and nuttier taste than other types of corns - Delicious! - The preparation of Nixtamal was a daily task for the housewife, and even now in old Mexico it still occupies up to six hours of a woman's day. The kernels were steeped in lime overnight to loosen the hull, then boiled and skinned, and finally ground to dough by crushing the kernels between a grooved stone roller and a Metate (a lava rock stone slab). The Nixtamal was usually made into tortillas. Taste these Blue Corn Chips and you will be transported to the Aztecs world, and you too will pray to Chicomecoatl for more.
