One of my absolute favorite things about summer is the backyard barbecue. Seriously. Most of our meals this time of the year come from the grill. Just this past weekend, I made another round of these delicious Smoky Whiskey BBQ Burgers. You may also remember the Hickory Smoked Pulled Pork from a couple of weeks back. And when I’m in the mood for something simple, I often just throw a couple of hotdogs on the grill and serve them alongside a pile of delicious Kettle Chips. No matter the day (or even the weather), you can almost always find me near the back deck with a pair of grill tongs in hand!
Today’s post features a quick appetizer-style recipe that I like to make whenever we invite friends and neighbors over. We almost always have Hickory Smoked Pulled Pork on hand during the summer (it freezes well!), and you can always count on finding a bag or two of Kettle Chips in our pantry. So what’s better than Pulled Pork or Kettle Chips? Well, Pulled Pork and Kettle Chips, of course! These little bites are easy to put together on short notice, and they are perfect for a crowd. Serve them up as appetizers at your next backyard barbecue, but make sure to have plenty of additional Pulled Pork and Kettle Chips on hand…folks will want more. Trust me! If you really want to get creative, try mixing up the varieties of Kettle Chips that you use to make these Pulled Pork Kettle Chip Bites. Kettle Brand makes 24 different all-natural flavors, so you have plenty of options to pick from! I often opt for the Sea Salt, but what about Hickory Smoked Pulled Pork on top of Jalapeno Kettle Chips? Or go for the double whammy and load up some Backyard Barbeque Kettle Chips with Pulled Pork! You could even make several different versions, and then have your friends and neighbors vote on their favorites.
One of the things I like most about Real Kettle Chips™ is the fact that they are all-natural, and they’ve been that way since they started making chips way back in 1982. There are so many additives and preservatives in our food these days that it’s a bit refreshing to read the ingredients on the back of the bag of Kettle Brand Sea Salt Chips. There are 3 ingredients, and I can pronounce them all! Potatoes, oil, and sea salt…that’s it! Indeed, Kettle Brand is the first potato chip to be officially verified as non-GMO, meaning that their chips have not been genetically modified in any way. I have a lot of respect for companies who are committed to producing natural foods in natural ways…and it’s even easier when their foods are as delicious as Kettle Brand chips!
There are a lot of “kettle-style” chips out there, but they aren’t the Real Kettle Chips™. I personally prefer Kettle Brand Chips simply because of their amazing flavor. So grab a bag or two of Kettle Chips, invite some friends over, and enjoy the delicious flavors of summer!
