Subway’s New Fritos Chicken Enchilada Melt
Subway’s New Fritos Chicken Enchilada Melt. I Eat It, So You Don’t Have To!
I don’t frequent Subway as often as my friends do, but I do watch a lot of TV and their Fritos Chicken Enchilada Melt commercials have been on playback quite often in between my favorite trashy reality tv shows.
So when I happened to be close to a Subway yesterday, I decided it would be a good idea to give it a taste. The man making my sandwich grabbed a pack of Fritos chips and poured the entire bag onto the sub. I cringed at the sight since I’ve never been a fan of adding chips to my sandwiches. I have friends that always throw in some chips with their Italian subs, but I prefer to eat my sandwich and my chips separately. I think it’s because I don’t like the crunchy texture of the chips with the sub, but who knows? Why fix what ain’t broke, right?
As I looked up at the life-size poster of the Fritos Chicken Enchilada Melt, I decided to change my bread from the flatbread to the Italian sub. The white flatbread just didn’t look appealing to me. I kept on imagining that it would taste like a enchilada on pita bread. Good move on my part. I think the Italian worked nicely with the sandwich. The chicken was tender and juicy. By the time I got home (5 minute drive), the Fritos had melted into the sandwich. It wasn’t crunchy anymore, which probably was a good thing for me since it didn’t taste like chips.
The enchilada sauce is not spicy at all, but since I added jalapeño peppers, it really gave it a bit of a punch. The melted Fritos added a heavy corn flavor, but I'd recommend eating it at the store if you want the crunch.
Overall, I liked it. It was a nice change of pace from my typical Subway sandwiches. It was nice to have a lot of flavor packed into the sub, instead of my typical BLT. So if you were worried about the Fritos and Enchilada combo tasting disgusting, it definitely wasn’t the case. It honestly tasted like one of those Doritos Taco Bell tacos. If you like that artificial, fast foody taste, then you’d like this!
