'chip' on Serious Eats

We Try New Lay's Canada Chips Flavors: Garlic Caesar, Maple Moose, Grilled Cheese, and Perogy

Earlier this year Lay's invited the American public to vote to keep one of three new potato chip flavors. Now Canadians have their own chance to pick a chip, and they've gone one better than their neighbors to the south with four flavors to choose from, all created by members of the public. I sat down with bags of Creamy Garlic Caesar, Perogy Platter, Maple Moose and Grilled Cheese & Ketchup, gorged on carbs, and tried to pick a favorite. More

Jerk Chicken Nachos from 'Ultimate Nachos'

Of the many unique recipes in Lee Frank and Rachel Anderson's new cookbook, Ultimate Nachos, the sweet-and-spicy jerk chicken nachos stood out as a must-try. As any spice-fiend knows, jerk marinade is a potent blend of scotch bonnet peppers, allspice, scallions, lime, thyme, and a plethora of other spices.

We Try the New Doritos Locos Tacos Chips (!)

The folks at Taco Bell and Frito-Lay have joined forces to bring us the next generation of taco-chip hybrids: the Doritos Locos Tacos Doritos in both Nacho Cheese and Cool Ranch flavors.

The Best Potato Chip You've Never Had

In the northeastern corner of South Dakota sits a small city called Clark. Amongst fertile potato fields and prized hunting grounds, there are 12 dedicated people in Clark making some of the best potato chips I've ever tasted, under a brand called Dakota Style. They've been doing God's chip work since 1985 but I tried them for the first time this past weekend. And I'm very upset about the lost time. More
