Notes on chips

Chips are a popular snack that can be found at most supermarkets, corner stores and gas stations. They are usually made from corn or potatoes*  and come in a variety of flavors, including Plain, Salt & Vinegar, Sour Cream & Onion, and my current favorite: pico de gallo.

*There are also chips made from rice, carrots, beets, taro, bananas, or anything else that can be sliced or flattened, and then fried or baked until crisp** (see “buffalo chips”)

**in fact, the British call chips “crisps”.

    Interesting. Pico de Gallo must be quite good. It makes me wonder…are the Pico de Gallo chips/crisps a specialty food item?
