Okay, you had me at FAJITAS. I have to admit, I haven’t purchased any Tostitos products in a long time. So seeing the commercial for a “fajita” chip intrigued me. I imagined a corn-chip with some onion, pepper, garlic, cumin, and other spices all blended into what sounded like a unique and delicious idea.
And they are snackable and have a unique taste to them. They have a laundry list of spices listed in the ingredients (even soy sauce????wha??) and a good flavor to them…but something is …dunno.. just slightly off. One taster I had with me …took a blind sample and said they taste like BBQ chips. Swore-up-and-down they were BBQ. When I revealed they were Fajita….the response was…NO…seriously???
I think these would make killer mini-bite appetizers if I doctored them up a bit. But other than cooking with them, I don’t think I would buy them just for dipping in my favorite salsa. But as you can see from the bag…I think that’s the point. These are supposed to be party-food. Dips and chips that taste like a full-on-meal.
