Rating: ©©©©-1/4 chips (lip-smacking)
After eating quite a few handfuls of these chips the heat of the chipotle chilies did begin to build.
Smoked Chipotle…? Hmmm, that’s sort of redundant isn’t it? A chipotle by nature is a smoked jalapeño. So, it is sort of like calling salt, salty, or a grilled cheese, as grilled-grilled cheese.
Overall, we have a tough time calling these CHIPOTLE flavored chips. They are certainly delicious, but we don’t think that chipotle is an accurate description of their flavor – especially the emphasis on the SMOKED.
In fact, these are some of the least smokey chipotle chips we have ever tried.
Let’s just call them some deliciously spicy BBQ potato chips.
And as usual, Herr’s fantastic kettle cooked potato chips do not fail.
Just the right amount of hearty crunch, and potato flavor.
As always, these are our thoughts, we would love to hear what you think. Agree or disagree, let us know.
