Bacon Habanero Tortilla Chips

By Lynda Wheatley | June 23, 2018

There’s a picky person in every Up North party crowd. And if yours has a dieter, a vegan, or a gluten-free, GMO-hating, Mexicali-loving bacon addict, just serve a sack of Late July Snacks’ Bacon Habanero tortilla chips, and you’re golden. Probably the least offensive but best tasting chips we’ve inhaled in a long while, these tasty triangles are naturally flavored, gluten-free, vegan, kosher, and made with organic, non-GMO corn. With all they don’t contain, you’d think they’d be boring, but they pack some decent heat (spicier than your average BBQ chip; not nearly as hot as the habanero tag would suggest) and a zesty, salty (albeit very subtle) bacon flavor that had us digging in again and again, no accompanying dip needed — a perfect recipe for easy-and-neat party/picnic/boat snacking. We found our 5.5-ounce bag for $3.59 at Oryana in Traverse City. 260 East Tenth St., (231) 947-0191.
