Deano's Jalapeno Chips - Ranch

Deano's Jalapeño Chips - Ranch

I have been waiting to get some of these to review ever since they appeared at the Fiery Foods Show in 2010 where they won a 3rd place in the unique snacks category, the flavour we have here is Ranch which is not a flavour we see here in the UK often.

Ranch flavour comes from a salad dressing developed by Steve Henson at the Hidden Valley Ranch, Californian in 1954. Ranch is a mixture of buttermilk, Mayonnaise, Salt, garlic, Onions with Chives, Parsley and Dill and spces up with some Black Pepper, Mustard and Paprika.

Deano’s Jalapenos Chips are made from thinly sliced Jalapeno’s that are fried and coated with the flavouring.  Jalapeño aren’t the hottest of Chillies, but they have an excellent distinctive flavour so it will be interesting to see if this can still be detected after cooking and coating.

Ingredients: Jalapenos, Canola Oil, Corn Starch, Buttermilk Solids, Maltodextrin, Salt, Modified Corn Starch, Whey Solids, Garlic Powder, Parsley, Guar Gum, Non fat Milk Soilds, Onion Powders & Citric Acid.

Packet kindly provided by Scorchio

As I hope you can see from the picture below these are real slices of Jalapeño, they are definitely not a crisps with a slight Jalapeño flavour or a extruded corn snack with some resemblance to the shape of the chilli.

So after all that waffle, what do they taste like?

Fantastic, as good as I had expected, they are very crisp and crunchy with  a very recognisable Jalapeño flavour, warmer that I had expected, the ranch flavour is there and complements the Jalapeño, they are very easy to munch away at, the heat builds, but the flavour is irresistible you, you just have to keep going. The pack starts to seem small at only 63g, but its a very good portion.

At £3.49 for a packet from Scorchio, you are getting a lot of Jalapeños for you money, just compare this to trying to buy some fresh, my recommendation is buy some you won’t be disappointed..
