Review: Tostitos - Artisan Recipes - Fire-Roasted Chipotle Tortilla Chips

Tostitos Artisan Recipes Fire-Roasted Chipotle Tortilla Chips are a mouthful to say and feature a multi-grain (9 different grains) tortilla chip flavored with spicy chipotle peppers.

I picked up a 9.75-ounce bag on sale  for $3.00 but they typically retail for a little more at $3.99.

In addition to chipotle peppers the chips also contain pinto beans plus onion and garlic powder for flavor and they combine create a flavor that's similar to the Roasted Garlc & Black Beans flavor. Basically, it tastes like a Roasted Garlic & Black Beans but with a spicy kick.
The chip itself has a uneven rough texture from the various grains and a bit of a nuttiness from the same. I quite enjoy the taste and texture. The seasoning gives you a bit of a slightly sweet, slightly salty, garlic and beans flavor with a swift kick of heat. The seasoning is lighter than say Doritos and I can easily go through a whole bag if I'm not paying attention (whereas the more intense flavors of Doritos will cause me to pause).
Needless to say, I really like both versions of Tostito's Artisan Recipes chips... even if the names are a bit too long.

  1. Artisan? Shouldn't a creative horde of employees be using edible dyes to draw upon the things?

    Or would drawing upon the bag be enough?

    How about including a free prize inside as Cracker Jack did? (still does?).

    Over the years the quality/value of Cracker Jack prizes declined.

    Long ago... back in the 1960s, powdered Tide detergent had a nifty hand-sized red ball inside.

    I believe it was a foam ball, not rubber and it was solid using a thick/dense foam.

    Note how much y'all can learn on these posts and comments.

    And no cover charge.
