Review: I Try Lays Mexican Chicken Tomato Flavored Chips!

Whenever I find a Lays chip flavor I haven’t tried, I buy it. I was lucky to find these Lays Mexican Chicken Tomato flavor, along with many other flavors in one single store.


I got these at Mo’s Food Market.


This cost me $2.89USD.

Seeing how specific the name of the flavor is I was very skeptical whether these chips were going to be good. How do you recreate Mexican chicken tomato? I assume the dish they’re trying to recreate is “pollo en salsa de tomate” (Chicken in Tomato Sauce). Every Spanish country has some kind of variation of this, so I was curious what they did that made this specifically “Mexican”.

When I tasted these chips I could taste the chicken slightly with mild tomato, garlic and onion. They were slightly sour too and I was right, according to the ingredients list they added vinegar. I wouldn’t say they captured the Spanish flavor but they had the most essential ingredients to recreate the flavor.

Would I buy the Lays Mexican Chicken Tomato again? No.

Honestly, I would rather just have pollo en salsa de tomate. If you’ve never had the dish, I definitely recommend it. These were nice but I didn’t think the taste was unique enough for the flavor described. It felt like a generic Spanish seasoning to me and the flavor was too light. Not the worst new flavor of Lays I’ve tried but certainly not the best either.
