Kettle Crunch

I have the avian mothra marinating and ready to braise (see yesterday's photo and comments) but in the meantime, I have discovered the perfect nibble. The hottest. spiciest, crunchiest chips ever -- Jalapeno and Aged Cheddar Cape Cod Kettle Chips . INTENSE!

Cape Cod Kettle Chips are the best chips. I have been chowing down on the plain ones and the russet kettle chips for a few years but Publix was running a special, a dollar off with store coupon, so I decided to try the only flavor left on the shelf, Jalapeno and Aged Cheddar. Normally, I am not a big fan of flavored chips since they tend to taste like chemicals but these are perfectly seasoned and totally addicting. If we still owned a bar, this is what I would feed the customers to make them drink faster. These hot chips require libation. Jalapeno and Aged Cheddar CCKC are the best ever crunchy, spicy and not too salty, chip. The aftertaste is smoky and flavorful and I heartily recommend them with cocktails, with sandwiches, or whenever you need an extremely crunchy, intensely hot munchie.

Buy them by the case online or visit your local grocer. If you like chips with substance and one that will bite you back, you'll like them, too.

W4D will be home this afternoon or evening. After the Bombay Sapphires and the avian mothra croustade, I will need to feed him real food. A friend dropped off a peck of home grown Tennessee tomatoes so I am thinking linguini and white clam sauce with a big salad made of those juicy ripe tomatoes, fresh basil and mozzarella for supper tonight. Tomorrow we are invited to a Low County Boil hosted by Cathy and David. Ahhh, the anticipation! Low Country Pix will surely follow. Enjoy your weekend.

Thanks a bunch. I felt a need to show the DW and daughter your stuff about the braised mothra. DW was about to start her exercises, which must be completed before we can think about supper. About 45 minutes later I asked whether they were going to stop jumping around your blog and photos and recipes so she could execise and I could think about eating. It's gonna be a late night tonight.


PS - when I preview this it says 3:16 PM. Why is that?

Tax, you must own one of those West Coast computers.

Sorry that Mothra delayed your dinner plans. I know you can cook since you taught me to put corn in my chili.

Kettle chips are the best...salt and vinegar aren't bad, but have to agree totally with you on the jalapeno and cheddar ones......I HATE flavored, but love's gotta be the extra crunch....

I am addicted to them. I think it's those little green flecks of real dried jalapeno and the sharp cheese stuff on those extra crispy, thick chips. Never a better chip anywhere! I'll have to try the salt and vinegar as well since I used to like the SV flavor of Wise chips. Still , they can't be as good as the Intense J and C chips... Now I am hungry!
