Rico Brand Chips and Salsa

Rico's makes some amazing chips and salsa. I especially like the Roasted Salsa and Pico de Gallo. Rico Brand products are available in most Salt Lake area supermarkets and at the company's own store located at 779 South and 500 East. The chips can be hard to find in supermarkets, so you might want to try another Utah-made brand of tortilla chips, Don Julio.
