If you're in the mood for the perfect tortilla chip dunked in organic salsa look you should try one made right here in Utah. Laurie's Buffalo Gourmet began as a Utah-based small business over a decade ago. Now this family treat has gone far from its roots and serves many retailers across the U.S., China, and Canada.

With its humble beginnings as a snack that Laurie and her family made for social gatherings, the tortilla chips slowly transformed into a business idea. The chips were originally made by renting fryers at a local hamburger joint.

In just a few short years, Laurie's Buffalo Gourmet has grown and now has a presence in some big name grocery stores like Harmon's and has also been solicited constantly by giant retailers like Walmart. For more information, visit lauriesbuffalogourmet.com
