Doritos Tapatio

Tapatio Hot Sauce is one of my favorites, and I love most Doritos tortilla chips flavors. However, I’ll admit that I was a bit skeptical when I learned that the two had been combined into Doritos Tapatio chips. Surely, Doritos wouldn’t be able to capture the unique flavor of Tapatio Hot Sauce on a chip. Or at least I thought. Turns out that they were able to do just that, and the result is very good. And very spicy! The chips are on the upper end of the heat scale for tortilla chips and I only recommend them for those who can take the heat. The Tapatio flavor is very pronounced, so much so that the corn flavor of the chip is pretty much lost. I think the flavor could have been scaled back a bit so that the corn flavor of the chip was discernible. But who asked me, anyways? Free marketing advise to Doritios: make a Doritos Collisions variety that combines Tapatio and Cool Ranch or Sour Cream-favored chips. I think it would be a winner.

I don't see why these would be so spicy when Tapatio is not really a very hot sauce to begin with.
