Happy National Tortilla Chip Day & Dei Fratelli Giveaway

To celebrate National Torilla Chip Day we are hosting a Dei Fratelli Giveaway to accompany the crunchy favorite snack food of my house. National Tortilla Chip Day celebrates the tortilla chips invented by Rebecca Webb Carranza in the 1950s. Carranza and her husband owned the El Zarape Tortilla Factory in Los Angeles and were among the first to automate the production of tortillas. The machine often produced misshapen tortillas, and Carranza decided to try and use them instead of throwing them away. She cut the rejected tortillas into triangles, fried them, and sold them for a dime a bag. Tortilla chips soon became a nationwide sensation, served alongside salsa, chili, guacamole, and a variety of other appetizers.

In 2003, the state of Texas made the tortilla chip the official state snack! We don't doubt it. We love them in our little East Coast neck of the woods.

 To enjoy our snack even better, we look for a really good dip to accompany the flavor of the chip and we think we have found a contender for favorite in my house. The Dei Fratelli Black Bean and Corn Dip Salsa is delish!

We were unsure of how the kids would take to this salsa because there are huge corn kernels which burst when you bite into them in the most scrumptious way. However, a tasty salsa is a tasty salsa and while they were unsure of what to make it it, they tried it and loved it. The jar only last one sitting and now I am on the hunt to find more.

We also tried Dei Fratelli Low Sodium Diced Tomatoes which were a wonderful addition to our Saturday Pasta Night! 


You could smell the difference as soon as you opened the lovely red cover can. Fresh and juicy tomatoes all diced up and smelling wonderful.


Now that we have tried the Dei Fratelli products we NEED more. They are distributed primarily in the Midwest, Central and Southeastern states. so I will be calling 1-877-LYCOPENE (592-6736) to find out where I can find the Dei Fratelli products closest to me.
