Bring on the food debate, but these best tortilla chips deserve prime space on the pantry snack shelf. From grabbing some tortilla chips by the handful or pairing them with a salsa, guacamole or other dip, there is always a reason to have at least one bag in the house. Which best tortilla chips are your favorite?

Thinking of tortilla chips, the varieties seem almost endless. From restaurant style to dipping to corn types, the plethora of snack choices could make you grab a bag of potato chips instead.

But, for the people who appreciate that perfect crunch, a hint of salt and the simple snack pleasure, there is an excuse to start snacking.

Here are FoodSided’s picks for best tortilla chips.

Tostitos Scoops

Many people love tortilla chips with a salsa, guacamole or dip and Tostitos Scoops are the quintessential dipping tortilla chip. Each chip can hold just the right amount. More importantly, the texture and the thickness stand up to the task at hand, no broken or saggy chips that have the potential for spillage.

While the Tostitos Scoops are best for scooping, they can be broken into pieces, too. Consider breaking that scoop in half for a smaller bite. Sometimes half a scoop is all you need.

Late July

For many people, Late July is their preferred tortilla chips. Made with just three organic ingredients, the clean, crisp flavor brings people back time and again. While the chips are lightly salted, it is the whole corn that drives the flavor.

These tortilla chips are delicious on their own. The combination of thin and crispy makes them a snacking must have.
