PLANO, Texas — Tostitos, part of parent company Fritos-Lay North America, has introduced a new flavor of tortilla chip as part of its Artisan Recipes line: grilled red pepper and tomato salsa flavored tortilla chips.
This is the fifth flavor in the Tostitos Artisan Recipes line from PepsiCo's Frito-Lay division, and the new chip draws inspiration from the layered flavors of a rich Mexican mole sauce.
Tostitos Artisan Recipes Grilled Red Pepper and Tomato Salsa flavored tortilla chips are made with a nine-grain blend and real ingredients like ancho chile, smoked paprika, garlic, and onion with roasted red bell pepper, sundried tomato and lime, that are mixed in before cooking. Like all Tostitos Artisan Recipes tortilla chips, they have eight grams of whole grains per one ounce serving.
"When developing new flavors for the Tostitos Artisan Recipes line, we look at culinary trends, knowing that our consumer is on top of what's new, but also looking for easy ways to incorporate the latest flavor trends into their snacks," said Jody Denton , executive chef at Frito-Lay's Flavor Kitchen, the company's culinary research and development center. "With the new Tostitos Artisan Recipes Grilled Red Pepper and Tomato Salsa flavored chips we've developed something complex and adventurous, which also happens to be the perfect snack to unwind with at the end of the day."
