puerro deshidratado en escamas
Explanation:
"Leek chips" sounds to me like a dried version, a dried ingredient of a prepared food rather than a fresh ingredient (like using the minced onion you can buy in the supermarket spice section instead of chopping onions yourself). It's right next to "onion powder" in this list:

Ingredients Oriental Noodles 3.22 oz: Enriched Wheat Flour, Partially Hydrogenated Palm Oil, Potato Starch, Salt, Soy Sauce, Guar Gum, Sodium Carbonate and Potassium Carbonate. Soup Base 0.28 oz: Salt, Sugar, Shrimp Powder, Soy Sauce Powder With Dextrin, Monosodium, Glutamate, Lactose, Hydrolyzed Plant Protein, Onion Powder, Leek-chips, Disodium Succinate, Natural Flavor, Artificial Flavor, Caramel Color, Disodium Insonate, Disodium Guanylate and

I think it refers to something like the following:

El puerro deshidratado en escamas puede presentarse también como escamas blancas (correspondientes únicamente a las hojas internas) o escamas verdes (hojas externas), aunque generalmente se lo comercializa como escamas verdes y blancas mezcladas. El puerro en escamas es utilizado para acompañar otras verduras (pimiento, ajo, cebolla) en diversas salsas: para frituras luego de rehidratar o simplemente acompañando carnes rojas, arroces y fideos.

Hope it helps.

hojuelas de poro


Explanation:
Sólo es otra opción para LEEK, pues depende de a quién está dirigida la traducción. En el Perú decimos "poro".

Suerte!
