I don't know if this is something they're doing at all Star Markets, but the store in Packards Corner has recently begun selling house-made tortilla chips in their produce department. (And yes, they're definitely house-made: I've seen the clerks in the hot deli department standing over the deep fryer with batches of hot chips cooling on a rack next to them.)
I picked up a bag to go with some homemade guacamole tonight, and am pleasantly surprised to say these are the best tortilla chips I've had in years: substantial but not heavy, with a perfect level of crispness and, crucially, a lot of corn taste. A light hand on the salt, as there should be. Frankly, they were good enough that we kept eating the chips after the guacamole was gone.
I'm thinking next stop is a plate of nachos, but frankly, these would do nicely in any application that I normally fry my own tortilla chips for, like tortilla soup or migas.
I noticed that I was not the only person carrying a bag through the store as I shopped. Give them a shot next time you're in a Star Market.
