There is no denying the fact that SunChips taste delicious.  They are super crunchy and perfectly seasoned or salted.  I love the original flavor but when I received the Sweet + Spicy BBQ SunChips to try, I had a new favorite.

Brady and I could have easily chowed through the bag but I wanted to do something fun with the chips too.  I put some into a bowl for snacking and made the rest into a fun recipe!


I considered many things before deciding to make a SunChip crusted shrimp.  I figured that the SunChips would add flavor and crunch, similar to panko.

The SunChips were easy to crush and baked well onto the shrimp!  I highly recommend trying them for a fun appetizer next time you have company or at your next holiday party!
