Chips: Siete Lime Chips, Jackson’s Honests Corn Chips, Terra Chips

Taco Seasoning: My two favorite taco seasonings are Primal Palate and Balanced Bites. I think Primal Palate is spicier than Balanced Bites but Balanced Bites has a fuller flavor.

Sour Cream: Daisy, Kalona Naturals. If you don’t want to purchase organic dairy, I think Daisy brand is a clean alternative.
