Onion and Caviar Chips with Spicy Crème Fraîche

Makes about 30

Total Time
1 hr

Potato chips and bubbly are a stealth match; caramelized onions pull out the toastiness in the wine; the tang of the cream works with the wine's acidity; and the salmon roe adds brininess (and the right color).

TIP: Set out the components and let guests build their own stacks.
