Review: Subway - Chicken Chipotle Melt with Guacamole

Subway's Chicken Chipotle Melt with Guacamole features grilled chicken, guacamole, Monterey Cheddar cheese, Chipotle Southwest Sauce, and a choice of bread and veggies.

A 6-inch sub cost me $5.25 at my local Subway, which is the top of their price range for sandwiches.

I went with Italian bread, red onions, tomatoes, and shredded lettuce for my choice of bread and veggies; that's the default configuration for the sub.

The sub is basically the previously offered Chipotle Chicken and Cheese Melt but with guacamole.

While it was evenly spread during assembly, my chicken managed to turtle to the inner edge of my sub either when the sandwich was folded close or during the trip home. This left me with a few chicken-less bites as well as a few chicken-full bites and the impression that the chicken does not hold its own against the guacamole and Chipotle Southwest Sauce. It was tender enough and fairly moist but not so flavorful.

Likewise, the tomatoes, red onions, and lettuce added texture but not much in the way of flavor. The bread was similarly plain and a lot like toasted sliced white bread in the shape of a sub roll. The cheese was of too little amount and too mild flavor to pick out as well.

The guacamole was similar to the store-bought stuff. It was thick and overly-smooth but provided the requisite buttery notes along with a bit of tang and a hint of salt, onion, and garlic. It went well with the Chipotle Southwest Sauce, which offered a smoky creaminess along with a mild heat.

Overall, Subway's Chicken Chipotle Melt with Guacamole put together a tasty combination of guac and smoky pepper sauce but didn't leave enough to accompany it. It just felt like I was eating a sauce sandwich.
