Surprising Vegan Chips

In the spirit of Halloween, I thought I’d put out the next Surprising Vegan article. I know that you can eat chips all year round, but since I already did a Halloween candy post, and chocolate one, with the addition of chips, you can have the most rockin’ Halloween party snacks around.

No more sitting in the corner crying because there’s ‘no vegan food’ – with this series, carnists have zero excuses.

*Lays Classic is made with pork enzymes in the US, making them not vegan. However, in Canada they don’t, so they’re safe to consume. Check out the US list here (at the time of writing, I’ve only been able to find a Canadian and US list, I’d suggest contacting the company for other specific countries)

This list (as well as this series) is always for Canadian ingredients – ingredients may differ (and therefore products may or may not be vegan) in differing countries. Please do your own research and look up the ingredients for specified foods for your own country.

This list also doesn’t mention all the marketed-as-vegan chips (like the Que Pasa Nacho chips – I recommend these btw, they’re so good!) as this is the Surprising Vegan series. If you Google ‘vegan ____’ tons of different options come up, but the point of this series is to find non-vegan-marketed foods that are safe for vegans to eat.

There are many instances where known vegan food might not be available, so it’s always great to have a list of foods that you know you can eat that may be easier/cheaper to find.

Ketchup Doritos/Sweet Chili Heat Nachos

Have you guys tried Ketchup Doritos? If not, you’ve GOT to try them! SO glad they’re vegan! The only problem with them? They aren’t available all year round, only ever limited time with such greatness…

Well, before they disappear this time, might I suggest make them into nachos? Ooohhh yeah – I went there.

These are split in half with Sweet Chili Heat Doritos (also vegan, and available all year!), but if you’re really craving ketchup, feel free to just use one chip.

Or, if you love Sweet Chili Heat but find eating them alone is a little too spicy for you – cut them in half with Ketchup Doritos. They pair really well together – the little kick from the Chili and the coolness of the ketchup are great.

Okay, okay, here it is:

  • Ketchup Doritos
  • Sweet Chili Heat Doritos
  • Red/Yellow Bell Peppers
  • Brown Rice
  • Daiya Shreds
  • Mushrooms (sauteed)
  • Soy Sauce
  • Spices (salt, pepper, garlic powder, oregano, basil, tumeric and cumin)
  • Salsa


  1. Make rice according to instructions and add spices if desired.
  2. Cut up the bell peppers and mushrooms to desired smallness (I made them cubes) Put bell peppers to the side.
  3. Throw the mushrooms in a pan with a little bit of olive oil. Add spices as you wish, and cook until tender, add soy sauce close to the end of cooking.
  4. Preheat oven to 375. Put foil over baking sheet and add 1 layer of chips. (Make about half ketchup, half sweet chili)
  5. Layer toppings as desired (except salsa). I layered: rice, mushrooms, red/yellow peppers and then cheese. Place in oven for 10 minutes or until cheese is melted.
  6. Scoop salsa into a small bowl to have on side. Serve and enjoy!

Love this recipe so much, wish I could make it all year but what can you do? Let me know what you think of this masterpiece in the comments!
