On Chanukah this year we will make a blessing on wine and then having latkas, etc.. I am looking for something mazonot to serve after the wine bracha which is not sweet. We are not making Hamotzi. Are corn chips mazonot? What other non sweet simple food would be mazonot?

(However, note that in a case where flour from one of the five m'zonos grains is even a minority ingredient in the chips, the chips would still require a blessing of m'zonos unless the flour is only in the food as a binding agent or for the consistency of the food or some such (Shulchan Aruch OC 208:2). Thanks to Fred for pointing this out in a comment.)
You can look through the listings at that site for ideas for foods that require a "Mezonot." The first savory snack foods that come to mind are pretzels and crackers.
Try Bissli from Osem or Super Snacks from Ki Tov. You could also use Chow Mein Noodles or Croutons (soup Mandle).
These are all Mezonos and not sweet.
There are some onion rings that are Mezonos.
