1.Rippled Red Heirloom Potato Chips:

Native to the high plains of Peru, these highly pigmented Red Heirloom Potatoes are the beneficiaries of a farming heritage back to 6,000 BC. Their burgundy color comes from the same antioxidants found in raspberries, while our wavy ‘ripple’ cut brings out the buttery notes of this heritage potato. These are some of the ways we are committed to using ingredients and methods that are honestly, deliciously better.

Ingredients: Red Heirloom Potatoes, Organic Coconut Oil, Sea Salt

“The Original Coconut Oil Chip.”

 

OMGG- Oh My Goodness Gracious! This Red Heirloom chips is very light and crispy, with a hint of  fresh coconut and sea salt. This nutritious chip is my greatest health-day ever, I just undeniably  in love with the wavy shape of the chip which makes it fun for dipping.

2. Salt & Vinegar Potato Chips:

The apple cider vinegar we use combines its sweet apple with the umami of coconut oil and the savory Non-GMO potato to produce a subtle, lasting flavor made possible by the low and slow cooking method we invented to produce coconut oil chips. Never harsh and acidic; these Salt + Vinegar chips are unlike any you’ve ever tried.

Ingredients: Non GMO Potatoes, Organic Coconut oil, Organic Apple Cider Vinegar Powder, Sea Salt, Fructose, Citric Acid and Organic Rice Concentrate.

“The Original Coconut Oil Chip.”

 

This flavored chips was surprisingly DELICIOUS!! The salty and acidic flavor is nice and light, along with tangy finish. Once again the coconut oil flavor is so good and coconut oil is evident which balances all of the components of the chips.

3.Salsa Fresca Tortilla Chips:

Their USDA Organic, Non-GMO Project Verified Salsa Fresca tortilla chips use corn grown by farmers who care about the shared resources of our land and water but also want to protect and preserve the genetic heritage of heritage corn varieties by exclusively using Non-GMO Project Verified Blue corn. And just like the ancient Mayans, we stone grind our Blue Corn using volcanic rock so that the masa retains its hearty feel and flavor. We had to invent a proprietary low-and-slow cooking method to produce the world’s first coconut oil potato chip: well, we had to do the same for making the world’s first organic coconut oil Salsa Fresca tortilla chip. This low and slow cooking process unlocks the taste and nutrition in the Blue Corn. When combined with our zesty Salsa Fresca spice blend – organic jalapeno, cilantro, chili, and tomato – the blue corn and coconut oil shine like no other tortilla chips you’ve ever had.

Ingredients:

Organic Blue Corn, Organic Coconut Oil, Organic Tomato Powder, Salt, Organic Garlic Powder, Organic Onion Powder, Organic Cane Sugar, Organic Tapioca Maltodextrin, Organic Jalapeño Powder, Organic Chili Pepper, Organic Cilantro, Citric Acid, Organic Vinegar, Yeast Extract, Organic Rice Maltodextrin, Organic Paprika Extract, Organic Spices, Lemon Oil, Organic Rice Concentrate

“The Original Coconut Oil Chip.”

 

This has to be purposeful, do you catch the hint the chips are Red, White, and Blue.  I am just having the time of my life, these tortilla chips. The tangy  taste of the tomato and jalapeño brings to life an explosion of two nations emerging.  I have to mention the organic essence of the rich garden flavored seasoning that brings a Fiesta to the 4th of July.

 

Here is the perfect dip recipe for this flavor chips:

Homemade Guacamole: Courtesy of the FoodNetwork:

Ingredients:

3 Haas avocados, halved, seeded and peeled
1 lime, juiced
1/2 teaspoon kosher salt
1/2 teaspoon ground cumin
1/2 teaspoon cayenne
1/2 medium onion, diced
1/2 jalapeno pepper, seeded and minced
2 Roma tomatoes, seeded and diced
1 tablespoon chopped cilantro
1 clove garlic, minced

Directions:
In a large bowl place the scooped avocado pulp and lime juice, toss to coat. Drain, and reserve the lime juice, after all of the avocados have been coated. Using a potato masher add the salt, cumin, and cayenne and mash. Then, fold in the onions, jalapeno, tomatoes, cilantro, and garlic. Add 1 tablespoon of the reserved lime juice. Let sit at room temperature for 1 hour and then serve.
