The Better Chip provided me with product and/or compensation for this post, however the opinions I shared are my own.
Our house is no stranger to bold flavors. DH and I both spend large amounts of time in the kitchen creating new food and flavor combinations based on what we already enjoy. So a few weeks ago, when I was asked to join The Better Chip Insiders Team, sample some of their chips and share the news of their newest flavors Chipotle and Beet, I emphatically said yes! I’m excited to celebrate National Tortilla Chip Day and share these Chipotle Corn Chip Turkey Meatballs!
I try and feed my family a well balanced diet with plenty of fresh simple ingredients, with still allowing the fun of a few snacks here and there.The Better Chip varieties are made from whole grain corn and fresh vegetables. They source fresh produce year round to deliver consistent flavored chips in bold and interesting flavors.
We use ground turkey more than ground beef in our house, but sometimes ground turkey needs an extra boost in pizzazz. The Better Chip’s new Chipotle corn chips are packed with smokiness and spicy heat. I am not into heavy heat in my food. I am a little bit of a wimp to be honest. When I tried a chip straight of the bag I won’t lie, I was frantically looking for some milk to cool my fiery tongue. I loved the intense smoky notes, and decided I could tame the heat by adding a dairy component in my recipe.
The Better Chip varieties are made in a completely nut-free environment. Their all natural ingredients and process are Certified Gluten Free, Vegan friendly (except for Sweet Onions with White Cheddar seasoning), and verified Non-GMO. The Fresh Corn chips are currently undergoing testing for certification. Now obviously, my turkey meatballs aren’t for serving to your Vegan friends, but I bet all your turkey eating friends will love them.
The Better Chip is now available in 8,500+ grocery stores nationwide, but remember to look for them in the deli section instead of the regular chip aisle. Any of The Better Chip varieties are the perfect fit for any occasion all while making you feel good about serving them or sharing them with your family.
