Just because the Super Bowl is over doesn’t mean you have to put away your signature party snacks! Mark your calendars because Friday Feb. 24th is the day to celebrate the best party snack of them all. National Tortilla Chip Day calls for your favorite chips and dip of choice whether it’s guac, spicy salsa or queso. Because of their addictive nature, sometimes once you open a bag of beloved tortilla chips it can be nearly impossible to stop yourself from reaching for another handful. But good news – there are healthier alternatives out there so you can celebrate the holiday the organic way. Here are a few noteworthy types so grab your friends and your preferred dip and don’t forget to hashtag #nationaltortillachipday on social media.

I was shocked to see the words “organic” and “Doritos” on the same package but this is no joke. Doritos now has an organic white cheddar tortilla chip flavor just in time for the holiday so be sure to grab yours and eat ‘em to your heart’s content!
