I can’t think of one occasion that chips and salsa are not appropriate for! I know each race day we make a batch of homemade chips and salsa while we cheer on Ty Dillion in car #95. The type of chip and type of salsa can really make or break this appetizing snack! Is is so easy to make your OWN chips and salsa, the best part is you can make it the way you like it. My family loves hot spicy salsa. I think my husband actually put jalapenos on everything. Thanks to Nexium 24HR easy to swallow tablets he has all day, all night frequent heartburn protection.
I prepare this in 2 small batches because my husband like it very hot and I am more a medium gal. Combine all the salsa ingredients in a blender or food processor until the salsa is the consistency that you like. Depending if my son is home or not depends on how thick or thin we make the salsa. He likes it on the thinner side rather than big and chunky like my husband.
Put oil in a heavy skillet, heat the oil, and cook the chips for about 2 minutes, just until they start to brown. Remove them and drain on a paper towel covered plate and sprinkle with salt. (If you’d rather not fry the chips, you can bake them in the oven on 350 degrees. Put them on a cookie sheet and bake 12 – 14 minutes, turning halfway through.)
- FOR SALSA:
- 1 can Whole Tomatoes (28 oz)
- 2 cans Rotel Diced Tomatoes And Green Chilies (10 oz)

- ¼ tsp Salt
- ¼ tsp Cumin
- ½ cup Cilantro
- juice of ½ Lime
- FOR CHIPS:
- 12 Corn Tortillas
- ¾ cup Corn oil
- Unless you have a really large food processor, you should prepare this in 2 smaller batches.
- Combine all salsa ingredients in a blender or food processor.
- Run until you get the consistency salsa you like.
- Refrigerate salsa for at least 1 hour before using.
- Cut each tortilla into 6 pieces.
- Put oil in heavy skillet about ¼" depth.
- Heat oil in over medium high.
- Cook tortilla chips for about 2 minuites until the start to turn brown.
- Remove and drain on paper towel covered plate.
- Sprinkle with salt.
- If you want to reduce oil you can also bake chips on cookie sheet in 350 oven for 12-14 minutes (turning halfway through).
Chips and Salsa are one of our favorite race day snacks. The only downside is the heartburn. Tomatoes are highly acidic and likely to cause heartburn in those who are prone to it. Raw onion and garlic are potent which can cause reflux in heartburn patients. Spicy and fried foods are also known to be a trigger of heartburn. Sadly, pretty much everything in chips and salsa may cause heartburn.

What is your favorite race day memory? Mine is going into the pits when I was a kid with my dad at Michigan Intl Speedway listening to the engine rumble, everyone smelling of burnt tires and music playing. There were rows and rows of campers and people cooking out. My dads’ friend had a camper and few kids so we just ran and played all day. By the end of the day I probably had some dirt on my face but its all worth for race day.
