Table Talk Tuesdays...Because We're Too Good For Regular Chips. September 03 2013

Sea Salt. Sweet potato. Nough' said. We are total suckers for a good salty snack, so these chips got a shot. 

We did some investigating and by adding a little chilli and cumin you can kick up the flavor, try it out to taste. 

Great if guests call on the fly & tell you they're popping over, because these are pretty common ingredients. Now just crack open a bottle of wine and you are hostess of the year.
