Review: Paqui - Haunted Ghost Pepper Tortilla Chips

Paqui Haunted Ghost Pepper Chips are tortilla chips featuring "a bold combination of ghost peppers, cayenne and chipotle" and are the spiciest chip in the regular Paqui line-up.

A 2-oz  bag cost me $1.79.

The tortilla chips are fairly crispy and like a slightly less bubbly Doritos chip in texture.

The spicy heat stung pretty intensely and spread across my mouth pretty quickly. I probably could not eat more than two or three in a sitting. That being said, my eyes didn't tear up and I didn't start sweating from them.

An issue for me is there's not all that much flavor to accompany the heat. Beyond the general burning of my tongue, the tortilla chips tasted mostly like toasted corn with a very light touch of garlic and onion.

If we're talking spicy chips, I prefer Taco Bell's Reaper Ranch chips. It's a step less spicy and a lot more flavorful. There's just not enough of a payoff flavor-wise for me to be eating Paqui Haunted Ghost Pepper Chips. But if you like plain tortilla chips with a lot of heat, it might just be your jam.
