DIY Flavored Kettle Chips

I'd choose a salty bag of potato chips over a piece of sweet cake any day of the week. One of my favorite things to do when I travel abroad is to check out the country's chip flavors. They always match with the country's top cuisines. I've had ramen flavored chips in Japan, beef flavored chips in Botswana, olive oil chips in Italy, jamon and queso in Spain and one of my all time favorites are the cajun crawtator flavored chips right out of Louisiana. When I saw Clinton Kelly from The Chew transform a plain bag of kettle chips, I almost fell out of my chair. Why hadn't I thought of this before? It's so simple. Purchase a plain bag of kettle chips and season them myself, duh. The flavor combinations are endless. I made these a little fancy and served them in brown paper bags for each guest. You could decorate the bags, but I left these plain.
