What’s one thing you can do without even thinking about it? Blink? Sure. Breathe? Yes, but you’re missing the point. Deep within the recesses of the human mind, within the subcortex of the brain, lies the impulsive nature to grab a chip off of a platter, dip it into the appropriate sauce, and proceed to eat it. It’s just what we do, and we’re proud of it. We went through the Food Monster App and found fun and exciting chips and dip creations. Celebrate with us with some of our favorite chips and dips!

1. Chili Coated Plantain Crisps With Lime Ketchup
Vegan Chili Coated Plantain Crisps With Lime Ketchup

These Chili Coated Plantain Crisps With Lime Ketchup are great for parties, or an afternoon snack and are perfect for when you have a potato chip craving. They are best warm, but if you slice them about half as thick as these, and bake them until they’re extra crispy, you’ll have something very close to a potato chip that will keep and travel well. You can find plantains at most grocery stores now, but they’ll be much more affordable at an Asian or Latino market. Look for ones that are still green; they should be firm without too many brown spots.
