Awesome tastiness! I was pleasantly surprised by these Tortilla chips. Dangerously more-ish, crunchy and bursting with exotic tangy flavours.
Manomasa (www.manomasa.co.uk), an exciting brand of premium tortillas with spirit, has added three new adventurous varieties to its core range: Green Lemon & Pink Peppercorn, Manchego & Green Olive and Tomatillo Salsa (RRP £1.99 per 160g pack). To pick a favourite out of these varieties would be a challenge.
The three new gluten-free additions draw inspiration from the existing range by also having a distinctive shape (designed for snacking, scooping or dipping), texture (using super grains such as red and white quinoa for added depth and bite) and exciting flavour combinations designed to suit the modern palate for a unique snacking experience.
The zesty Green Lemon & Pink peppercorn option is packed with creamy beans, pepped up with pressed Green Lemon essential oils for a punchy citrus taste and tastes fantastic.
This chip makes the perfect ‘tostada’ style base for a variety of toppings.
The Manchego & Green Olive: The Dipper is designed for dipping, layered with juicy Mediterranean olives, spicy pimiento and tangy Manchego cheese made in the La Mancha region of Spain. The cheese is grated, melted and slow dried to allow the flavours to stay sharp and remain full of character.
Using the finest white corn masa, the tortilla is rested then gently toasted for a smooth, flaked texture that makes an ideal base for the trio of ingredients.
Finally, the Tomatillo Salsa. This grain-studded chip is shaped in a large traditional Mexican triangle and is made using a delicious mix of fruity Peruvian Amarillo chilli, a crunch of red and white quinoa grains all blended with tingling Tomatillo salsa. The fresh tomatillos sourced from Mexico are gently macerated into an authentic, rich pulp that’s blended with Mexican lime juice and finished with a delicious array of herbs and spices.
Using the finest white corn masa, the tortilla is rested and gently toasted for a light bite that gives way to the distinctive crispiness of roasted red and white quinoa.
Manomasa launched into Ocado with three flavours: Chipotle & Lime, White Cheddar and Sea Salt & Cracked Black Pepper in March 2013 with the promise to shake up expectations of the tortilla chip.
Manomasa’s three newest flavours are available from Whole Foods and independent delis priced at £1.99 (per 160g bag).
