It's that time of year again: football is back! And fall is just around the corner meaning that it's time to evaluate my sweatshirt collection, get some leaf peeping on the calendar, and enjoy the perfect September weather. As if September wasn't awesome enough, it's also National Guacamole Day tomorrow!
Here at the office we welcomed September with a tortilla chip taste test. Each of us have tried and true favorites we love to pair with salsa, hummus, and of course guacamole! My favorite guacamole recipe, courtesy of Alton Brown, boasts wonderful flavor (thank you, cumin!) and quite the kick (use a whole jalapeno for extra spice!). I whipped up a batch and we put it to the test against a range of chips.
Among the offerings we had the usual suspects, some more exotic offerings as well as blue, flax sprinkled mystery chip randomly chosen from the snack aisle at Target. After much (blind) snacking and deliberating we each cast three votes for our favorites.
Here are the results: La Niña was the winner which maybe shouldn't be a surprise, considering that it's the most authentic tortilla chip and complimented the guacamole perfectly! But then Tostitos Hint of Lime and Garden of Eatin' Red Hot Blues were the other favorites, proving that we love flavor and spice!
