I have to admit – I have never tried Terra Chips before until they shipped us their products to promote their “Fire Up the Flavor” online sweepstakes. I opened up my very first bag of the Original Terra exotic vegetable chips which includes Taro, Sweet Potato, Yuca, Batata, and Parsnip… and needless to say, the chips were fantastic – and I’m not saying that because they gave us free chips, but because I really did enjoy them. I’m not a big “chips” fan in general, and there are only a few I can see myself eating. I think what I liked about Terra Chips is that it’s vegetables in a chip form and it’s not overly greasy. I feel like I get more nutrients snacking on these than regular potato chips.
Here is more information on the “Fire Up the Flavor” online sweepstakes: Runs through August 31st and features 25 grand prizes (charcoal grill, serving bowl, $250 grocery gift card, 12 bags of Terra Chips and a printed entertaining guide) and 50 first prizes (six serving bowls, an array of Terra Chips and a printed entertaining guide). Details on both are located at www.terrachips.com. I highly suggest entering the contest and whipping up your own fun recipe with the chips. There are endless possibilities!
I decided to make an Avocado-Corn Salsa with the ingredients I had on hand to eat along with the New Terra A La Mexicana chips. These vegetable chips are seasoned with a piquant blend of authentic Mexican flavors of vine-ripened tomato, hearty black beans and tangy roasted garlic. These spices work well with the refreshing and healthy salsa I made… which is a mixture of avocado, corn, cherry tomato, red onion, jalapeño, lime juice, and salt and pepper. Easy as that!
Alright my friends, who’s ready to win our August Giveaway? One winner will get 4 bags of Terra Chips along with a Martini Glass Bowl and Entertainment Guide of great summer recipes.
