MICRO-REVIEW: New Doritos Dinamita Mojo Criollo
Today’s junk food: New Doritos Dinamita Mojo Criollo!!
I’ve reviewed a few Doritos Dinamita on this blog before, but it’s been a while. When I was finally able to track down theseNew Doritos Dinamita Mojo Criollo (I’d seen them on the web since March), I did a little jig. Mojo Criollo! Garlic! Citrus! Sounds good….on meat. Slow cooking a big pork shoulder with a generous helping of mojo marinade is a favorite pastime of mine. But how would this flavor combo taste on a rolled up Dorito?
Answer: PRETTY DAMN GOOD. The bag, when opened smelled slightly tangy so I was worried that these would have fake-lime flavor, which is what I HATED about these Doritos Dinamita. But this Mojo Criollo version might be my favorite Dinamita yet! Good salt on the rolled up chip, with a good amount of savory tang from the lemon. The lime flavor was not extreme and was PERFECTLY balanced with the garlic and onion powders. Right when I think the citrus would get out of hand, it didn’t – this chip, to me, was ALL about balance, which I appreciated. Completely NOT spicy, which I realize is the trend these days. Just a nice slightly citrus-y savory chips. After taste of slight garlic – which I of course enjoyed.
REALLY REALLY good. Hard not to eat the whole bag. BUY THESE. You’ll like them, I promise!
