A sandwich, tasty as it may be on its own, demands a side of chips. It just feels incomplete without a crisp, crunchy companion. But that doesn't have to mean deep-fried potato or tortilla chips. These five healthy alternatives will make your sandwich proud:

Chipotle Kale Chips. Smoky, spicy, and hearty, these addictive crisp leaves pair particularly well with turkey or roast beef sandwiches.


Microwave Sweet Potato Chips. The microwave makes thinly sliced sweet potato wonderfully crisp in record time. Try these with Cubans, BLTs, pulled pork, or club sandwiches.

Cumin Chips. Oven-baked corn tortillas dusted with earthy cumin make a great side for Mexican tortas.

Potato Chips with Blue Cheese Dip. These are so amazing you may just forget about your sandwich. Use a mandolin to slice the potatoes to make sure they're even and extremely thin. Fantastic with burgers and cold beer.
