Taste test: These chips were basically thinly sliced jalapeños with some ranch-seasoned breading added.
They had a much lighter color than plain jalapeños, thanks to the breading, but most of the pieces were roundish, so they still looked like slices of jalapeño. This was a tough sell to talk some of our tasters into trying, but just about everyone who crunched into a handful of these ended up liking them. It was just like biting into a jalapeño, except for the dried factor and the breading/seasoning, and the heat was pretty strong after eating a few. The ranch-flavored breading added some extra flavor while tempering the heat a bit. A few dissenters thought they were awful, but quite a few of our snackers who are fans of hot stuff were very impressed, returning to the bag for extra handfuls.
