There’s no denying that “Dirty” chips are good. Darned crunchy, too.
I was thinking that these jalapeno heat chips would be mighty spicy, but they turned out fairly mellow. Not sour cream and onion mellow, mind you. Just not overwhelming. And, something you don’t find very often in a jalapeno-flavored chip, I could taste the actual pepper. I thought that was very unique. Usually hot pepper chips are just hot. You don’t even notice that the flavor comes from a pepper, you just get heat.
So, on the Life’s A Tomato ‘Mater Rater scale, I gave these chips:
Texture: Outstanding crunch. Not oily.
Flavor: Great potato flavor with a mild heat kick. Tastes like jalapeno peppers and not just a hot spice. I could’ve gone for just a tad more heat.
Quality: Great. The chips were evenly seasoned.
Appeal: A hefty, thick, crunchy chip that held up to shipping. Cool bag design.
I loved all of the Dirty Potato chips that I bought and devoured: Cracked Pepper and Sea Salt, Funky Fusion, Maui Onion, Mesquite BBQ, Sea Salt and Vinegar, Sea Salted, Sour Cream and Onion, and Sun-Dried Tomato.
