Honest Review of Trader Joe’s Takis

Trader Joe’s Takis are fantastic! The chili lime flavor really comes through without being overly spicy. Traditional Takis can have a lingering punch of spice that can be over powering to some. Both brands are very similar in the fact that they are a rolled tortilla with chili lime seasoning. Personally, I’m gong to stick to the TJ’s version which has less preservatives and no dyes.

Keep an eye out for this small pink and yellow bag filled with crunchy deliciousness!

Serving ideas for Rolled Corn Tortillas Chips

  1. Enjoy this delightful snack right out of the bag (Optional: dip them in sour cream).
  2. Sever with favorite sandwiches, paninis or tortilla wraps
  3. Topping for soups
  4. Topping for salads
  5. Bread crumbs for crusted chicken (recipe below)
  6. Topping for mac and cheese

Why TJ’s version is the best

These tantalizing rolled corn tortilla chips are gluten-free and have 0 grams of added sugar. I’m really excited to share that these chips obtain their vivid color from vegetable juice, paprika, and turmeric extract. The traditional Takis contain artificial food dye, something our family attempts to avoid when possible. 

Trader Joe’s Rolled Corn Tortilla Chips received 2 thumbs up from everyone in my household (even the kids are obsessed).  Next time you take a trip to your local trader joes we highly recommend that you grab a bag of these yummy tortilla chips.
