Rating: ©©© chips (notable)
Last year Manomasa amazed us with their packaging, and really floored us with two of their lip-smacking flavored tortilla chips!
Which may just be why it pains us so much to say that these chips are only….notably okay.
RECIPE No. 24 bring us the TOTOPO with smoky chipotle chilli & zingy lime with RED BELL PEPPERS, GUAJILLO chilli & TOMATO PUMPKIN SEEDS
These chips certainly have some strong, smokey, chipotle chili flavor. So much so that the seasoning seemed a bit harsh.
We can appreciate how the tortilla chips had actual pieces of the chili running through them, but overall these chips were just lacking some depth, and richness. They are very one note – smokey-salty-chili chips.
The seasoning offers just the slightest hint of citrus. In fact, we probably wouldn’t have known it was there if we weren’t looking for it.
We had assumed that Manomasa had to have at least one dud among their delicious line-up, and although these aren’t horrible, we think that these are them.
As always we would love to hear what you think. Agree or disagree. Let us know.
