Rating: ©©©©-1/2 chips (lip-smacking)
A few weeks back we reviewed Brew Foods’ Chipotle BBQ Corn Tortilla Chips, and we thought that they were some very tasty chips.
We told you how Brew Foods is a new tortilla chip company focusing their efforts on the beer drinking masses, in other words, the vast majority of us! We also told you how we paired those chipotle bbq tortilla chips chips with a Ballast Point Pineapple Sculpin India Pale Ale, and how the combination of the two did in fact work quite well.
Well, this time around we are here to tell you to throw all of that other stuff out the window! Brew Foods’ Salsa Verde Corn Tortilla Chips may in fact pair very well with an ice cold brew, but we cannot deny or confirm that with you because we tried one chip, and the rest was history. We devoured the entire delicious chip bag before we even had a chance to crack open any bottle of beer! Who needs beer with chips this fantastic!?!
First, lets get one thing out of the way before we do anything else. These salsa verde tortilla chips are not quite as delicious as as our most favorite salsa verdes of all time – Doritos! But, Brew Foods’ Salsa Verde Corn Tortilla Chips are fantastically delicious in their own different sort of salsa verde flavored way!
We say sort of salsa verde flavored because more than anything else these chips make us think of – ONION RINGS!! Yep, that’s right, bar food staple, beer battered onion ring flavored corn tortilla chips. Seriously, unanimous among all of the reviewers, these chips trigger thoughts of onion rings! But, not just any onion rings, slightly spicy, very vegetal and tangy flavored onion rings….aka, our new favorite kind of onion rings!
The chips do have many of those typical salsa verde ingredients like tomato, cilantro, jalapeño, garlic, but we can’t help but notice that onion powder is the very first flavored ingredient on that list. In other words, these chips exude sweet and fragrant onion-ness, and if you are not a fan we suggest you stay the heck away! But, if you are like us, and love onion rings and corn tortilla chips, you will be in for a treat with these unique chips!
Brew Foods’ crunchy corn tortilla chips are thinner cut, small batch, with loads and loads of corn flavor. The chips are light, and yet deliver a substantial toothsome chew. Think more like fried tortillas, than tortilla chips with lots of air pockets. Any which way we describe them, just think tasty and unique salsa verde corn tortilla chips.
As always, these are our thoughts, we would love to hear what you think. Agree or disagree, let us know.
