    Let's give veggie chips props for trying to be as delicious as their non-veggie counterparts. However, if we're going to snack on something that looks like a chip and acts like a chip, it really ought to taste as good as a chip, right? Thankfully, with the help of salsa they can! Open a bag of veggie chips alongside a heaping bowl of incredible salsa, and you'll love veggie-chips like never before.
