It takes will power to not give in to delicious salty, oily and just darn tasty tortillas chips. Restraint is a foreign term in my vocabulary. When I saw this bag of Habanero flavored tortilla chips a small drop of drool dropped from my snack food craved mouth.. This is the 'Paqui Brand tortilla chip and it was found at my favorite hang out 'Heat Hot Sauce Shop' in Berkeley. Paqui is an Aztec word that means "to be happy'. Paqui is also a tortilla and chip manufacture based in Austin Texas. They have different chile flavored chips ranging from the deadly ghost pepper to the mild jalapeno. Habanero will be our choice today.(They were out of Ghost pepper flavored).
These chips have a wonderful crisp crunch. A wonderful corn flavor was my first thought. Immediately after taking a bite I had a sinus reaction. This always happens when I experience a potent pepper. The heat flavor did not kick in immediately. When it did take effect the beautiful habaneros shined in all their fruity splendor. This chip had all the right moves. They were slightly salty with just the right amount of oil to make you crave that next bite.The heat level was not for beginners but will not set any fires. Overall, this is a mighty fine product. I am Paqui. (Happy)
