Deano’s Jalapeño Chips

A slice of spice from Vermont with bold South-of-the-Border flavor


A small Vermont-based operation with outsized creativity, Deano’s Jalapeño Chips are flavorful little slices of actual peppers—perfect for spicing up burgers, eggs, snack mixes, popcorn or even as a stand-alone snack. Founder Doehne “Deano” Duckworth, inspired by Jalapeño-flavored potato chips, decided to skip the potato altogether.


Sliced paper thin, the peppers fry to a crisp before a dusting with either cheddar or ranch flavoring. Though it might sound as heart attack-inducing as their starchy cousins, Deano’s are free of trans fats, cholesterol, gluten and even hydrogenated as well as partially-hydrogenated oils.
