Quitos Hot Chili Lime

Shop for snacks: Buy Takis

Taste: When we spotted these on the shelf of a roadside convenience store, we quickly bought up all of the flavors based on the Quitos name alone. (We just like the word Taquitos!) We opened the bag to find that the rolled-up tortilla tubes were very thin (thinner than Takis) and about two and half inches long. They had an even darker, scarier (though less bright) shade of red than the corresponding flavor of Takis. We crunched in to find a solid crunch and a major kick of lime and hot chili on the first bite. The heat was strong but not killer after eating one piece, and it grew progressively stronger and lingered for a long while after eating more. Not everyone we offered these to was willing to try, but the hot food fans who did try enjoyed the taste as they munched on these with some beer.

Shop: Buy Takis

Aroma: Surprisingly mild. Just a bit of lime and corn.
