Doritos – Mexican Street Food – Cheesy Enchilada

Has this ever happened to you?

Imagine you are cruising down Av Roca Blanca when suddenly you are forced to double over in hunger induced agony. It is a problem millions of people face each day and it is a problem that is totally avoidable if people are aware of the danger. If only there was some sort of awareness program set up, to make sure we all know what to do when facing a hunger attack whilst on a Mexican street.

It is scary to think how many people there are that still would not know what to do in a situation like this. It could happen to anyone. Anytime.

Even you. Even today…

Well friends, if you have ever found yourself on a Mexican street and couldn’t decide what to eat, then Doritos has produced a chip to help educate the masses.

Doritos has released it’s Mexican Street Food range of flavours. This one is the Cheesy Enchilada but there is also a Beef Briskets Taco flavour out there. Actually, that sounds better than this one… why didn’t I buy the beef one?! 🤔

Damn. Anyone tried the Beef Brisket Taco flavour? Is it any good? I have a sudden case of buyer’s remorse. I can never decide what flavour of Dorito to buy.

Enchilada comes from the Spanish word, enchilar, which translates to ‘to add chili pepper to’ or to translate to my-speak: ‘put chilli on that sh1t’.

An Enchilada is a corn tortilla rolled around a filling and topped with usually a tomato based sauce. The filling can be anything but usually something like beans, cheese, beef or chicken is in there. You can put chilli on that sh1t. Or not. And I think it is still called an enchilada regardless.

This tasted like cheese – with no chilli. It wasn’t very hot, but it was spicy in the sense that it tasted like it had a variety of Mexican spices in there. Tasted vaguely like an enchilada and conjured up memories of that time I was on the Mexican streets once.

Not bad – I have never met a Dorito that I didn’t like and this is no exception. Flavour wasn’t anything particularly new or unique, but I would eat again.

Street, but not that street – 6.5 / 10
