This is a great appetizer for Cinco de Mayo (or any other occasion to celebrate all things Mexico!).  Cinco de Mayo is the holiday that commemorates the Mexican army’s 1862 victory over France at the Battle of Puebla is tomorrow.  


Que Pasa Tortilla Chips are made with organic whole grain corn and are stone ground between hand-cut volcanic lava millstones.  They are then reduced to a fine and flavorful masa.  It’s pretty much like the dough you’d find in Mexico’s heartland centuries ago.

Tortilla Chips

Being organic means that the corn was grown without the use of chemical pesticides, chemical fertilizers, or genetic modification.  In simpler terms, they’re all-natural.

If you are absolutely pressed for time, you can pick up a bag of Que Pasa Tortilla Chips and a jar of Que Pasa Chipotle Salsa.  But if you find that you do have just a little bit of time, put your apron on and whip up a batch of Warm Black Bean Dip.  Que Pasa shares the recipe on their bags of White Corn tortilla chips, or you can print it below.
