Tried it Tuesday – Honchos Organic Tortilla Chips #Giveaway

The nice folks from Deep River messaged me on Facebook to see if I wanted to try their new Honchos Organic Tortilla Chips. These chips look like Doritos and come in similar flavors – Nacho Cheese, Ranch and Peach Habanero. But unlike traditional chips, these are USDA Organic, gluten free and contain no GMOs. They also contain no dyes or artificial flavors and have no MSG. [Did you know that over half a million kids in the US suffer adverse behavioral reactions from synthetic dyes?!]

Honchos offer all the taste of “other ‘itos’” with only real ingredients. These chips have “all of the flavor and none of the fake.” Another difference is that they’re selling Honchos as a subscription service with 10% of proceeds going to charity. That’s a win-win.

When I was offered this sample, I knew that The Husband would be thrilled. He’s a fan of the traditional flavored tortilla chips. Of course, I love the opportunity to serve him something healthier that he likes.

The Husband tried all three varieties – and I got to try Peach Habanero. He liked them but questioned what the market was for “healthier junk food.” On the contrary, I know there is a huge market for, and interest in, healthier snacks. Since we don’t have children, The Husband may not realize how many families try to eat organic. Also, many parents look for snacks with no dyes, GMOs or MSG.

Honchos are Husband approved (and I like them, too!) You don’t have to take our word for it. The nice folks at Honchos have offered to send a sampler of Honchos like we received to one lucky reader. Please use the Rafflecopter below to enter. The winner must be a US resident, 18 years of age or older and the offer is void where prohibited. The giveaway runs through 10/25. A winner will be selected and notified on 10/26.

Spotted at CIBO Express at Newark Airport!

You can get Honchos HERE. They have a trial option (You receive a sampler like I received and you just pay the shipping.) Then, they have a subscription offer. You can also find Honchos in stores. I saw them at Newark Airport recently. You can also follow Honchos on Facebook, Instagram and Twitter.

Please note: I was offered product in exchange for an honest review. I was not otherwise compensated for this post. All opinions are my own and those of my husband.




  1. Jeffrey says:

    I like hot chips so the Peach Habanero would probably be my favorite. I’d like to have the boys try the Ranch and Nacho Cheese flavors to replace the popular brand they normally eat!

  2. Dana Rodriguez says:

    These sound really good. I think I would love the Ranch but the Peach has me intrigued. We try eating healthier snack options.

  3. Maryann D. says:

    I have been definitely trying to replace my favorites with healthy versions. I would love the Nacho Cheese flavor to try.

  4. marie wickham says:

    Wow, you had me at tortilla chips. can’t wait to try them. peach habanero might be a bit much though. I think its sacrilege to mix salty doritos with a sweet peach.

  5. Jeanne Coulombe says:

    The peach ones are calling my name and gluten free yes!! Having celiac disease it’s hard to find good gluten free snacks

  6. i love peach so I’m keen to try the Peach Habanero, strange as that may seem. (I’ve tried peach pineapple salsa and it was great!)

  7. p.s. The Twitter and Facebook links didn’t find anything…hope you won’t count that against me.

  8. Melissa says:

    That Peach Habanero sounds really good! I love finding healthy versions of guilty-pleasure foods.

  9. Becca Z says:

    I have seen Honchos at my Fresh Market but haven’t tried them yet, I want to try Nacho. We buy the healthiest snack foods we can, I haven’t really found a replacement for potato chips yet, white potatoes are never going to have the nutrition I am looking for, but I will very occasionally buy an organic potato chip that is cooked in coconut oil. We have found bean-based healthy varieties to replace traditional cheese puffs and tortilla chips, as well as protein popcorn that is dusted with protein powder and seasonings and made with coconut oil.

  10. I would like to try the Nacho Cheese flavor first. I have a serious addiction to Doritos so it would be great to find a healthier alternative!

  11. Michele Cupp says:

    I’m a nacho cheese kinda girl, but I’m curious about the peach habanero.

  12. Jackie says:

    I would like to try the ranch flavor first.
    Thank you!

  13. Georgiana says:

    Nacho cheese is a good flavor and I love healthy snack food choices.

  14. jberry says:

    Irony… I don’t like faux anything. Nacho I guess. Yes I will TRY to replace for health.

  15. Mary Rutter says:

    I would like to try the ranch

  16. Pat says:

    I’d like to try the ranch flavor. I try to eat healthier versions of my favorites.

  17. Geoff says:

    I’d try the Nacho Cheese flavor. Sounds like a good substitute for the chips I sometimes crave.

  18. wen budro says:

    I would first try the nacho cheese flavor. The other two sound yummy too. I try to buy healthier versions if they taste good.

  19. Susan P. says:

    I would love to try the Ranch flavor. I prefer snacks without artificial flavors and colors.

  20. Susan P. says:

    The Twitter link for Honchos has a typo in it. It should be @wehonchos.

  21. Kris I. says:

    I want to try ranch and yes, I’ve been trying to stop eating the bad stuff and replace them with healthy choices!

  22. Renata says:

    A healthy version of Doritos sounds great to me – I would pick the Nacho cheese flavor.

  23. Amy Scott says:

    I’d love to try the Peach Habenaro! I love Doritos but know they are not healthy. I’ve tried those Rice Works chips which are similar, but probably not too much better…. still, I’ve never seen a peach habanero chip!

  24. Raymond says:

    Ranch would be good and I like real ingredient tortilla chips.

  25. Lauren says:

  27. nickie says:

  28. Mary W says:

    I would try the Peach Habenero first. We like hot & spicy foods. We have changed our chip choices but choosing healthier bases other than potatoes.

  29. Lisa Brown says:

    I would try Peach Habanero. Sometimes I substitute for healthier foods, but on a grad school budget, it’s tough!

  30. Keri says:

    Ranch sounds delicious!

  31. Sarah N says:

    The Peach Habanero sounds great. I rarely eat chips for these would be a nice treat on rare occasions.

  32. Tim says:

    The peach habanero is the most unique variety, so I want to try that.

  33. J says:

    The peach habanero sounds unique, but they all sound good. I have always stuck with healthier options since I was raised on real food, but it is nice to have variety.

  34. Jen says:

    The peach habanero sounds unique, but they all sound good. I have always stuck with healthier options since I was raised on real food, but it is nice to have variety.

  35. Laurie Nykaza says:

    Nacho Cheese flavor sounds so good and yes we do change out old foods for ones that are better for us. My son has Celiacs disease so he has to have GF for him.

  36. Noreen says:

    We are always looking for healthier alternatives
