Is your weakness chips and guacamole? Well, no need to change that habit. In fact, we fully support it... with the addition of beet chips! Unlike your regular tortilla chips, beet chips are packed full of vitamins and fiber. And the best part about making them yourself? You can mix up the spices and try out different flavors for an added twist on a classic bbq staple.

After all, no one wants that anywhere near their white jeans. As an added bonus, they’ll keep your energy levels up to power you all the way through to the fireworks' grand finale.
