Tequila + Potato Chips (episode 103) tequila review

Turn up the volume, pour yourself something really GOOD, and open up your favorite bag of potato chips, because this Tequila Whisperer episode presents to you perhaps the greatest chips in the USA!

Th’ Lip has traveled far and wide (online, of course!) to find some of the best artisanal potato chips in the entire Country.  As is his bent, he chose some great current tequilas to pair them with.  And what fun is chowing down on a few thousand chips without a Buddy to come over and help make ‘em disappear?  Welcome “Senior” Rick Mendell back to the show, Folks!

    Get thee to your local Mexican market (Mi Rancho?) and buy some Doraditas potato chips–available plain and con chile. Best potato chips out there next to fresh made…. great with Agavales Blanco tequila, too.
