Announcing Siete Grain Free Tortilla Chips - Sietefoods.com

January 02, 2017

We started making grain free Mexican staples at Siete to bring our family back to the table. With the successful launch of three tortillas, we reimagined tacos and tostadas for a variety of diets and allergies. We were able to once again enjoy the foods we used to love.

But in Laredo, a dinner party is not complete without tortilla chips, salsa, and guacamole. Having already made tortillas with chia and cassava and coconut flours, the next step was logical: we had to complete the meal and make snacking more inclusive and healthy by creating the most ridiculously delicious tortilla chips. (We also heard your comments, whispers, and over-enthusiastic shouts begging us to make some and wanted to deliver!)

And, against all odds, we may have actually done it! We aren't exactly unbiased, but these chips are really really freaking good. And they're dangerously addictive. Serving sizes have been known to go out the window when a bag opens in the office. (Not talking about you, John, we promise!)

These chips are powered by avocado oil, enriching them with beneficial fats and giving them a flavor that's both delicious solo and as the perfect partner to a delicious guacamole.

The initial release consists of three distinct flavors: Sea Salt, Nacho, and Lime. But all three are made with nutrient-dense, real food ingredients. 

Sea Salt

These should have been named Tortilla Chips: The Director's Cut. Our sister, Vero, made tortilla chips without any grains that taste better than any regular tortilla chip you've ever eaten. We were skeptical at first, too, but they're smooth and crispy and light and refreshing. Right when they pop out the oven, we make it rain with sea salt, so you can eat them straight out of the bag or with your favorite dip or salsa.

Nacho

We searched all of Mexico to find the perfect nacho tree, and then we picked its tantalizing fruit for our Siete Nacho Tortilla Chips. Seriously, though, let's take a second to salute Ignacio "Nacho" Anaya, inventor of the eponymous Tex-Mex staple. Nacho, you rock!

At Siete, we're kinda like an Olympic gymnast who is going for gold, we like our routines to have a high degree of difficulty, so we made our delicious cheesy Nacho flavoring without using any dairy. That exercise was slightly harder than colonizing Mars and slightly easier than long division, but we did it. Stuck the landing!

For the seasoning blend, we spent hours in the kitchen getting the ratios just right and the final product is the perfect mixture of tangy, spicy, and cheesy. Smoked serrano and roasted garlic underlie the sophisticated savory flavor that provides the chips with an addictive depth. We met the nacho, gave her a makeover, and sent her to the serape-carpet in a dazzling red dress. 

Lime

Everyone wants to go to paradise, but not everyone can get there. Thankfully, a bite of our lime infused chips will teleport a palm tree and a straw hat to your location. (Note: this was not replicable outside of our trip to the beach.) And even if they don't, the refreshing sensation of our tart lime seasoning will at least brighten your day. Our lime chips provide the ultimate tailgate or potluck one-up, as they are both the ideal partner to any guacamole and an undeniably zesty solo act. 

Now all that's left to do is open a bag, take a bite, take another bite, take another bite, take another bite...oh, were we supposed to leave you with a succinct, yet wholesome ending? Sorry, got distracted there for a second. Anyway, we can't wait for you to dive into a bag of Siete Foods Grain Free Tortilla Chips and take back the snack.

 

Siete Foods Grain Free Tortilla Chips will only be available for purchase from Whole Foods Market until mid-March, at which point they will be available for purchase from other retailers and our online store. (Pro-tip: wearing a suit of armor to the chip aisle will give you your pick of the packages)

What Does our Mexican-American Hyphen Feel Like?

May 10, 2021

In a word, we might offer that our Mexican-American hyphen feels like “perspective.” Understanding what albondigas aren’t by knowing what meatballs are; having a firm foot in two seemingly distinct cultures; cooking with ‘a little bit this and a bit little of that;’ growing up in Laredo and living in Austin.

SMALL BATCH: KETTLE COOKED QUESO POTATO CHIPS

April 15, 2021

When our co-founder and sister, Veronica, said she and our Culinary Innovation Team were going to make a queso potato chip, we said, “Y’all are crazy! Everyone knows you can dip a chip into queso, but a Kettle Cooked Queso Potato Chip?!” Sure enough, not only did they pull off a deliciously flavorful mouthful with every chip, but, in true form, they also made them gluten free, non gmo, and yes—even dairy free, too.
