After I made these Garlic Chips for my friend’s bridal shower, I immediately started thinking of other ways that I could gussy up regular potato chips. It is such an easy way to make a flavorful snack. It has taken me a while, but I finally started experimenting again. Like my original experiment, these chips do have plenty of garlic but the real stars are the spicy jalapeno, the smokey cumin and the cool citrus lime flavor.
Heat olive oil in a skillet over medium heat. Add in garlic, jalapenos, cumin and 1/2 teaspoon lime juice. Cook about 1 minute or until jalapeno is slightly softened and garlic is fragrant.
Place potato chips in a large bowl, pour jalapeno mixture over the top. Toss to coat the potato chips. Drizzle with remaining lime juice. Sprinkle with lime zest and chopped cilantro if desired. Serve.
