Food Should Taste Good multigrain tortilla chips, Guacamole with artichoke hearts recipe

Established in 2006, Food Should Taste Good™ was started with the goal to bring unique snacks with great taste, real ingredients, and sophisticated flavor. They have succeeded.

In a quote from their website:

“With a name that speaks for itself, Food Should Taste Good™ chips are made from high quality ingredients. All chip varieties are gluten-free, cholesterol free, have zero grams trans fats. They are also certified Kosher. Plus, many varieties are certified vegan.
Food Should Taste Good™ chips are available nationally at conventional grocers and natural food markets.”

The multigrain tortilla chips I have used in this photo are utterly delicious! Containing Stone Ground Corn, High Oleic Sunflower Oil and/or Safflower Oil and/or Canola Oil, Brown Rice Flour, Flax Seeds, Cane Sugar, Sesame Seeds, Sunflower Seeds, Quinoa, Sea Salt, Rosemary Extract, they live up to the company name.

The flavor of these chips is outstanding! I love the flax, sesame and sunflower seeds in them. But not only are the multigrain tortilla chips flavorful, they are light, thin and crispy; yet they hold up to even the thickest dip. They are the perfect chip.

And this Guacamole with Artichoke Hearts recipe is a perfect dip to team them with for snacking! This is my version of guacamole that I make with avocado, lime juice, tomato, red onion, serrano chile, fresh chopped cilantro, cumin, coriander and garlic. This time, I added some artichoke hearts! Not only do the artichoke hearts increase the protein content of the dip (avocado has protein, too), they add texture, fiber, vitamins, minerals and antioxidants; using Food Should Taste Good™ chips, this is an excellent Meatless Monday food!

Make this Guacamole with Artichoke Hearts recipe; go to your local grocery or natural food market and pick up some Food Should Taste Good™ chips! You need these in your life.
