Review: Subway - Fritos Chicken Enchilada Melt

Subway's new Fritos Chicken Enchilada Melt features pulled chicken in enchilada sauce and Fritos corn chips along with the standard choice of bread, veggies, cheese, and condiments.

I picked up a footlong for $7.25.

I went with a close approximation of the product pictures on the Subway website and got my sub on flatbread with shredded Monterey Jack and cheddar cheeses, lettuce, tomatoes, onions, and olives.

The chicken was fairly tender and juicy with some decent-sized chunks here and there. There's a pretty nice seasoned enchilada sauce flavor to it with a bit of a tang. It works pretty well with the vegetables I went with

Along with the pillowy flatbread, the Fritos Chicken Enchilada Melt felt a bit like a Taco Bell Gordita.

The Fritos added a decent crunch and corn flavor, but I'd recommend eating it at the store for the best crunch.

I found the amount of cheese to be a little lacking. It didn't add enough flavor nor oozy stretch and didn't merit being called a "melt." It barely even registered.

Overall, Subway's Fritos Chicken Enchilada Melt was fairly enjoyable and adds a new flavor profile to the Subway menu (at least while it's still around). It's a nice change up if you eat at Subway a lot and find yourself getting sick of cured meats. For $7.25, it really should live up to the "melt" portion of the name though.
