Pico de Gallo Chips: Like Doritos, But Healthier

As a kid, I hate to admit it, but I grew up on junk food. Maybe that's why I'm such a freak about it now - too many years of eating crap that make you feel like crap.

Nacho Cheese Doritos were one of my faves. They were a typical afternoon snack when I came home from school - I used to LOVE licking the powdered cheese off my orange-stained fingers. I've long since given those up, but they'll always be one of my fond childhood memories.

While at the health food store, I came upon Pico de Gallo Chips made by Garden of Eatin'. They taste so much like Doritos, but the ingredients are much healthier. Doritos have partially hydrogenated soybean and Cottenseed oil. And nothing says junk food like artificial color - love that Yellow 6. Yum.
