Hosting a get-together and trying to figure out what to serve? Try these healthy chips and delicious dips and wow your guests!

Ok- so about a year ago I was at my sister’s house and she pulled out some chips and salsa for us to snack on.  But, these were no ordinary chips.  They were a multi-grain chip- which honestly sounds about as appetizing to me as a piece of sandpaper.  But, I didn’t want to offend my sister so I partook anyway.  I was completely blown away by the deliciousness that I experienced with a mouth full of multi-grain and salsa!  I asked her where she found these chips and she said Costco- which was a bummer because I don’t live close to a Costco and I don’t have a Costco card.  So, to feed my craving my sweet sister picks up a bag of these chips for me every time she goes to Costco.  The brand name is Food Should Taste Good– and I couldn’t agree more.  You will have no idea that you are eating flax seed and Quinoa, but you will get all the health benefits.

Food Should Taste Good let me try a variety of some of their other chip flavors and I was impressed with every one. Like these oh, so festive Harvest Pumpkin chips!  Try them with your favorite creamy cheese topped with a cranberry compote.  You won’t be disappointed and neither will your guests.

Their Blue Corn Tortilla Chips are awesome with this easy, but tasty Buffalo Chicken Dip!

They are also great with the Avocado Hummus Dip– who doesn’t love avocado?

Avocado-Hummus

Serving Size: 6 people Ingredients:

16 ozcan garbanzo beans
1 avocado, peeled and coursely chopped
1 clove garlic
1/4 cup olive oil
1 lime (for garnish)
salt to taste

Directions:

Place garbanzo beans, avocado and garlic in a blender or food processor. Add the olive oil a little at a time, until the hummus is well pureed. Add more olive oil, if needed, by the tablespoon to get the consistency just right. Salt to taste. Serve with Food Should Taste Good™ Lime, Multigrain or Blue Corn Tortilla Chips.

The Sweet Potato Chips were so good they didn’t last long enough to make it into a dip honestly, but they would be great with a classic Ranch dip with cottage cheese added to it for a little texture.  Delish!

They have gluten-free options if you need them and they are certified non-GMO.  So- if you are looking for a healthy alternative to the average snack chip, look no further.  These are the chips for you!  These are some of my favorite dips, but they have several more ideas here for you to try.

You can order them online here if you can’t find them at any of your local grocery stores.
