Best Tortilla Chips

I love Garden of Eating 'Red Hot Blues.' They are a near perfect snack. When ever a bag gets opened it is emptied. They are good plain or with dip. I even thought about putting them in my week old food processor and coating chicken cutlets with the crumbs. Does anyone else rank these as highly as I do?

  1. Chip snob here, they have to be fried locally by a restaurant or at home. And salted, they're no good without any salt at all.

      +1, however I have found commercial bagged chip that are made in Oregon that are excellent- Juanitas $2/bag.

    2. If I buy commercial chips, it's either Garden Fresh as they ARE fresh tasting, or for a junk food craving, Tostitos Lime. That salty limey thing gets me.

      Most preferred chips are those made at the local Mexican market.

      1. They are commercial but I still eat them.

        Never made my own tortillas, any advice?

        1. I do love the Garden of Eatin chips. For dipping and nacho purposes, I am a huge Green Mountain Gringo tortilla strip fan.

          1. Food Should Taste Good chips come in a boatload of flavors but the lime is my favorite.

              +1, but they need to lose the stupid name and come up with something better.
