Doritos Spicy Nacho

To me the flavors of Doritos tastes like chemical creations from the New Jersey flavor mills. They seem to be coated with it.

I'm kinda addicted to them, so it probably makes sense
I can breeze through a bag of Lay's Cheddar and Sour Cream potato chips in no time. It was a sad day when they doubled the price and made the bag smaller.
I get down with those Oolala chips previously mentioned. I think they have about 5 flavours, all of which are delicious. They pair wonderfully with a bottle of Champagne. And with that, I've decided on dinner for this evening.

While not as elegant in flavouring as the above, I also enjoy Neal Brothers' Sirachup chips.
I conducted a potato chip tasting based upon this thread. All were the basic potato chip.

#1: Dirty Brand Sea Salt Potato Chips. These chips don't have quite the texture and substance of crunch that the Kettle brand chips do. But they get very high marks on potatoeyness and being appropriately salted all while having good texture.

#2: Hawaiian Brand Potato Chips. These are very similar to the Dirty potato chips. They fall behind a bit in potatoeyness but have a very pleasant snap to the crispness and caramelized flavor.

#3: Kettle Brand Sea Salt Potato Chips. These are the most frustrating chip. They are almost as potatoey as the Dirty chips and they fall in between the Dirty and Hawaiian on caramelization. The texture is amazing. The most snap of any chip but also the thickest and easily the most substantial. These have the texture of food. However, they are over salted. Additionally, that incredible texture can come at the price of bruised gums if you eat too many, depending upon your specific mouth and chewing habits.

#4: Trader Joe's Potato, Olive Oil, Salt Kettle Style Potato Chips. These were quite good but clearly brought up the rear. The chips were airy and crisp compared to the others with many tiny little pockets of air within the chip -- the exact opposite of the Kettle Brand chip consistency. They simply did not feel substantial in the mouth. While the "cleanest" tasting and least salty (which is not a bad thing) these were also easily the least potatoey and did not have any caramelization. The olive oil, I think, contributed to the lightness of the chip, but I think based upon this limited sample, that for potato chips peanut oil might be the way to go.

I'll 2nd the Dark Russet Utz. Really addictive. Also recommend the Kettle Brand Jalapeño...its pretty good.

Did it successfully help cleanse away the nasty taste of burgundy? Smile
Great Lakes Brand
Made in Traverse City.
Apparently voted #1 by Chicago Tribune (at least that's what the website claims).
I keep my body between the bag and my kids at all times.
Kitchen Cooked - Farmington, IL

Available in central Illinois and some Rural King stores nationally.

I try not to buy these as it's too easy to eat through 2 10oz bags at once. They're not available near by, but I'll get some at a gas station in McLean, Ill, when I drive to Chicago.
Although some on this board (*cough* w+a *cough* Razz ) take pride in the fact they do not own a microwave, I just made a batch of potato chips in ours. And they're fantastic. Flavorful, light, crisp with a good crunch and not at all greasy, which I sometimes find with chips fried in oil. One of those things that sounds crazy...until you try it.

Is there any oil involved this method? or are you essentially dehydrating?
I don't eat very much bacon but I've seen it done masterfully in the microwave.

I'd be interested in how you did this VinT. I tried it some time ago and the results were quite inconsistent so I never repeated the exercise.

Tons of recipes online, some with oil and some without. I sliced super thin, tossed in a bag with a bit of olive oil to give a light coating and nuked on parchment paper for 5-6 min. Super crispy and highly addictive. Rightly or wrongly, I have convinced myself these are a 'healthy alternative' to regular chips.
There had to be some kind of fat content to crisp them up.
I love frying just about anything in olive oil for the flavour it gives.
just thinking, how big is your microwave? you doing 10 chips at a time every 5-6 minutes? no s$#t they're healthier.
I slice my potatoes into a uniform (and undisclosed) thickness, before placing them in a dehydrator, unceasingly, and then bake or fry! My potato chips are highly addictive, full-flavoured, World Class, and Award Winning, I will have you know Roll Eyes

Cheers!

More like 15-20 chips each time, but yeah it's a slow process. Today I tried cooking them right on the (freshly cleaned) glass microwave turntable. Got more chips but also took nearly ten minutes. The other tip that helps is putting the slices in a bowl of cold water right after cutting. Dry on paper towel before tossing in EVOO.

I'm another that has no microwave. Ours went on the fritz a couple of years ago and we opted out of replacing it. Don't miss it.

OoLaLa Black Truffle and Olive Oil Potato Chips

Potato chip crack. Ordered a case of them online (from Guelph, Ontario, about 40 minutes west of Toronto) because they've become difficult to source locally.

Not at Cheese Boutique? They had a different brand of black truffle chips. I didn't notice if OoLaLa was there... are they really THAT good?

Cheese Boutique has Torres brand black truffle chips. I haven't tried them because I only saw them last week when I was there, and I'd already ordered my OoLaLa. Plus the OoLaLa were $4.49 and the Torres were something like $6.75.

Yeah, OoLaLa are crack. I can eat a whole bag in one sitting. And then feel sick a few hours later.

It appears our dear wine+art was having an off day with his punctuation. It should have read, "I shall share with you why I don't, face to face, later this month." Methinks they'll be sharing some bottles soon...
I almost never eat potato chips on their own, so don't often get "exotic" flavored chips. I bought a bag of Utz chips a few days back to accompany some chicken salad I made for sandwiches. If there's a better regular old school potato chip out there, please let me know.
