What surprised me most about this product was the heat. I’m a moderate lover of spice (sriracha is a ketchup substitute in those house) but still I found these slightly tingly on the tongue. Don’t get me wrong, they’re relatively mild, but there’s certainly a noticeable heat for the average Joe/Josephine.
This product isn’t simply dehydrated jalapeños. I believe they’re also coated in flour too – perhaps fried before being dried out? There’s also a modest amount of salt to the taste too, though nothing more so than a standard potato crisp.

So, what to do with these? Here are a few ways I’ve personally used these crispy japanos; topping a black bean and corn salad, as a fun enchilada topper, inside a flatbread wrap and lastly in a taco. Basically anywhere you want to add a crisp texture and add spice with one fell swoop – these are a great goto.
