Tostitos has just introduced a new tortilla chip, the Tostitos Thins. These are lighter, thinner chips which are dusted with special salts, making them perfect for snacking. To celebrate these chips Tostitos has launched a new tab on their Facebook page, the Tostitos Fiesta 411 tab. This is a great online destination for planning a party at home. It includes recipes and party planning tips.
I checked out the tab and there are a lot of great ideas there. It has ideas for centerpieces, party favors and even wrapping paper. It is certainly a useful resource for party planning.
I also had the chance to sample the new Tostitos Thins. They come in two flavors, Lime & Salt and TexMex, and are sold exclusively at Target stores nationwide through mid-July. My family and I enjoyed the chips, and the thin crispiness of the chips was a nice change. They have just enough of a taste to stand alone, or you could pair them with salsa or guacamole.
My son was going a Boy Scout camp out over the weekend, and the boys are always supposed to bring a snack to share with the rest of the troop. So I gave my son a bag of the TexMex chips to take along. He reports that the boys loved them, and they were the most popular snack that anyone brought. Now I realize teenage boys arenâ€™t exactly the most discerning food connoisseurs, but they give the chips a big thumbs up.
Here is one of the recipes I love from the Tostitos Fiesta 411 page, it is a unique salsa that tastes amazing with the new chips. Pairing the avocado with grapefruit is a fun twist that makes the guacamole more exciting.
- 2 ripe avocados
- 3 tablespoons minced onion
- 3 tablespoons grapefruit juice
- 2 tablespoons diced grapefruit wedges
- 1 teaspoon garlic powder
- 1 teaspoon salt
- 2 tablespoons sour cream
Peel avocado and mash until chunky. Stir in minced onion, grapefruit juice, diced grapefruit, garlic powder, salt, and sour cream. Serve or cover and chill in refrigerator until ready to serve! These are a total match made in heaven for TostitosÂ® Thins Lime & Salt tortilla chips!
