Re: Tortilla chips with no powdery flavoring?

So glad I found this thread! I'll be visiting my local Coop for the chips, then I guess I'll have to pay Michael a visit for some Cheddar (my favorite on nachos — sorry if that offends any Brits), because I don't see it anywhere else. I brought my own Jalapeños (Trappey's — nice & crisp). ...It's been a month now, and I think I'm due for a good Nacho fix.

Re: Tortilla chips with no powdery flavoring?

I found some great ones at Kaufland in Waldshut: "Tortilla Chips Natur". Just corn, oil and salt, no funny seasonings or additives.

They are the ones! The are not actually that expensive and have remained the same price for 15 years. They are made in Wädenswil (ZH). There was a grocery store in Wädenswil that sold this brand too, but the were more than Jelmoli.

"Mi Adelita" is the brand. They come in clear plastic bags with a yellow label. Available in plain salted, chilli and, oddly, black...
They're excellent. But they're not black, they're blue corn, sister!

Re: Tortilla chips with no powdery flavoring?

Here's a trick: remember that the Swiss grocers stock both european-style tortilla chips in the snack food aisle, but they also carry tex-mex style ones (including plain salted ones) in the mexican section of the international aisle.

When I need chips to dip chili, I head to the international aisle and get either Pancho Villa from Migros or Old El Paso from Coop. If even the dinky Coop in my village carries them, you'll have NO trouble finding them in a bigger store.

Re: Tortilla chips with no powdery flavoring?

I also like the plain tortilla chips from the Coop - both naturaplan (green bag) and regular old coop (blue bag, I think) in the snack aisle. In fact, I like them better than El Paso. Everyone has them, I think.

Success on finding the Pancho Villa "Nacho Chips" (plain) at Migros.
I sometimes wonder how old Pancho would feel, giving his memory to the world is a brand of junk food.
and 'old el paso' is a dutch company

funny old world innit?

Re: Tortilla chips with no powdery flavoring?

For those near Basel, El Sol has really good ones (their house brand ones: http://www.elsol.ch/component/page,s...art/Itemid,30/). Expensive, but better than any others I've found elsewhere. They're thin and crispy more like you usually get in restaurants in California/Arizona. Not thick like the "Mission" brand popular in the US, so if you like the "Mission" ones a lot then the El Sol ones aren't for you.

Re: Tortilla chips with no powdery flavoring?

And what about the tortilla chip's red-headed stepchild- Fritos? Do any of those places have those? I just got a craving...

There is a Mexican store in Luzern that sales the Mi Adelita mentioned
earlier in the thread.

It is on Baslerstrasse.

Mi Adelita are the best that I have tried so far, but I would be interested
to try those near Basel.

The tortilla chips sold here are nothing like fritos in that real tortilla and fritos are cooked with wet corn, whereas the stuff here is all cooked with masa flour.

But sorry, no....i never saw fritos here or anything close. Its a pretty US thing

Awww... I have this awesome chili con queso recipe (not the velveeta-esque cheese sauce with salsa), but it is best with Fritos scoops instead of tortilla chips.

I would give a dear price for some Velveeta/Rotel tomato queso. Especially if it had some Jimmy Dean's or Owen's breakfast sausage in it.

American Food Avenue has both Velveeta cheese blocks (only 8oz) and Ro*Tel in their product list.



The sausage part though is a bit more do-it-yourself. If you find yourself actually wanting to include the MSG from these recipes, that would be found here as "Aromat."

JIMMY DEAN SAUSAGE RECIPES

Sage

16 ounces ground pork
1 teaspoon salt
1/2 teaspoon dried parsley
1/4 teaspoon rubbed sage
1/4 teaspoon ground black pepper
1/4 teaspoon dried thyme
1/4 teaspoon crushed red pepper
1/4 teaspoon coriander
1/4 teaspoon MSG (such as Accent flavor enhancer)

Hot
16 ounces ground pork
1 teaspoon salt
1/2 teaspoon cayenne pepper
1/4 teaspoon rubbed sage
1/4 teaspoon ground black pepper
1/4 teaspoon crushed red pepper
1/4 teaspoon coriander
1/4 teaspoon MSG (such as Accent)


Maple
16 ounces ground pork
3 tablespoons maple flavored syrup
1 teaspoon salt
1/2 teaspoon MSG (such as Accent)
1/4 teaspoon coriander
Combine all ingredients for the flavor of your choice in a medium bowl. Form the sausage into patties and cook in a skillet over medium heat until brown and cooked through.
Makes 1 pound of sausage.
