Have you ever tried to make tortilla chips in your own kitchen ? Maybe in a fun holiday shape for a party? Perhaps you succeeded and your tortilla chips are now a hit. For the rest of us (ahem, me), it doesn’t quite work out so well.
I’ve tried a few times to make them at home with tortilla shells and a fun cookie cutter, and not only were they not very tasty, but they didn’t exactly have the look I was going for, either. Luckily, if you’ll be hosting a fall get-together this year, Trader Joe’s has your back with brand-new leaf-shaped tortilla chips.
Instagram user kristines_ig spotted them at her local Trader Joe’s and ended up buying two bags, because, as she wrote, “How could I not buy these?! So cute!!”
The chips come in a 14-ounce bag and are around $2.99. Instagrammer @carls1073 even put them in chicken tortilla soup to make it more festive, thanking Trader Joes for the “cutest tortilla chips I’ve ever seen.”
Trader Joe’s seems to be celebrating the season in a big way. You can also find fall harvest Salsa there right now. Made with pumpkin, apples, butternut squash, fire-roasted tomatillos, red bell peppers, jalapeños and lime juice, it comes in a 12-ounce jar and is priced at $2.99.
Now all you need for your fall party is a set of pumpkin-shaped bowls for serving your festive chips and salsa, like this pumpkin dish at Target , or this set of three maple leaf-shaped condiment dishes from Williams-Sonoma .
But back to the food itself. If you don’t have a Trader Joe’s near you but do have The Fresh Market , you could try your hand at making your own leaf-shaped tortilla chips (hopefully you’ll have better luck than I did) and pick up some of their harvest pumpkin Salsa. One of their most popular seasonal items, it combines pumpkin, jalapenos, tomatoes and spice for a sweet-and-savory blend.
Enjoy the season!
