In the event you want to keep that celebratory Mardi Gras Spirit alive on Lundi Gras‘, you can tack on another reason to celebrate…National Tortilla Chip Day! Yes, there is such a thing, of course I’d guess if you were inclined to hunt around the vast wasteland of cyberspace, you’d encounter commemorative days for everything from belly-button lint to dental floss re-purposing. But today is the day to celebrate the chip! Do you favor a particular store-bought brand, and whip-up your own home-grown concoctions? Do you prefer to leave the work to the culinary pros? Warm and fresh is always best, I say, but hey, molten cheese on cold chips is okay, provided they are not stale and rubbery. Guac is a whole ‘nuther ball game, and most discerning tortilla dippers will insist on a fresh and preferably homemade potion. (And speaking of baseball, ballpark nachos are always better no matter what, right?) Do you hit ’em with hot-sauce, japelenos, chili and cheese? Gobs of sour cream? Onions. Green and black olives some capers and crumbled bacon and…..aww geez, I am done for the day on that note! Here’s hoping your Tortilla Day is crisp, crunchy and satisfying. Let’s go eat!
