  • Best commercial Potato/Tortilla chip substitue?

    Curious what commercially available substitues people are using for potato chips or tortilla chips?

    i sometimes go for pork rinds. they're pretty good, and make a pretty good replacement for nachos.

    if you're not carb-phobic, fried plantains are pretty tasty, and a handful of unsweetened banana chips are great for a tasty, crunchy snack.

      I don't have a problem with potatoes, so I buy these amazing potato chips I found that are cooked in avocado oil. Super yum.

      You can also find commercial sweet potato or other root vegetable chips, but they're often cooked in canola oil or other vegetable oils.

          If you can afford it, dehydrated kale chips.

              The brand is called Good Health, and I get them at the south side Planet Organic. They make avocado and olive oil varieties, so make sure you grab the right kind.

                  So worth it. A tiny package is like $7 when you can make twice the amount for $2 including energy costs and 15 minutes of baking time.

                          Most commercial growers of potatoes don't chit them before planting, so why is it common practice on the vegetable plot? The process of chitting is when you take a seed potato and put it in a sunny spot to grow shoots.

                            I sometimes eat Korean seaweed. Not the type used to make rolls (Japanese) but the type that uses sesame oil so it is crispy. Trader Joes has a good wasabi flavored one. They are thin and crispy and give a similar sensation to munching on potato chips.

                              In the 'Asian' section of my supermarket there are baked rice chips - I get the unflavored kind, the only ingredient is rice, so no crap omega 6 oils or corn. They're pretty bland on their own, but they're adequate if you're looking to use them to dip into guacamole or salsa.
