As you can certainly guess, I’m a big fan of Kirkland Signature and Costco products. I’m also a big fan of dip.
What do these two things have in common? Well, I tend to see chips of all kinds as a sort of dip delivery system, if you will; I rarely, if ever, eat chips just by themselves. Those are ‘crisps’ for you Brits out there. Weird.
In any case, I am extremely fond of the Krinkle Kut Kirkland Signature chips (you can read my review right here), but despite being less salty and greasy than other chips, they are still quite greasy and salty, and I get tired of them quickly for that reason.
The other day, my dear wife, who also loves dip and salsa, purchased some Tostitos salsa, which I will review here at some other point, as well as the Kirkland Signature Organic Tortilla Chips to go along with it. I’m usually not a huge fan of salsa, but this one was pretty good. The tortilla chips, however, were a true revelation!
According to the package, they claim to be ‘lightly salted’, which is true. While some chips taste saltier than others, overall they taste just salty enough not to be bland, but nothing overpowering. They are not greasy at all, which is a huge change from my usual Krinkle Kut chips.
The price of the Que Pasa Tortilla Chips varies quite a bit these days, because it is imported from the USA and the value of the Canadian dollar has been fluctuating quite a bit, but I usually purchase a 908 gram bag (2 pounds) for anywhere between $4.99 and $5.99, which in any case is a great price. This particular bag was $5.49, if I recall correctly.
What I enjoy particularly is that these tortilla chips are quite crunchy; you have to leave them in the dip for a long time for them to become soggy. It never comes to that.
These tortilla chips are made of corn flour, obviously, are completly cholesterol-free, trans-fat free and gluten free, and with only 3% of the daily recommended dose of sodium in each portion, you can really pig out. Each portion is a huge 30 chips, too!
For those who care about that stuff, these tortilla chips are organic. Personally, I could not possibly care less, but it can’t hurt, right?
Now obviously those chips are great with salsa, homemade or store-bought, but they are equally delicious with my homemade onion dip, which is quite rich in sour cream, yogurt, sriracha and more. I’ll share the recipe sometime, but not today.
In conclusion, I would recommended having a bag or two of these delicious Kirkland Signature Que Pasa Organic Tortilla Chips around the house. They are great with any dip you could whip up, as well as salsa, and are a surprisingly guilt-free snack!
