I really feel like there’s some actually intelligent joke that does one thing with the thought, “Hey, you bought your Taco Bell in my Burger King!” however I can’t really consider the joke; I simply understand it’s on the market, someplace, within the ether. Possibly “My Burger King could style like Taco Bell at present, however at the least my Dunkin’ doesn’t style like Arby’s!” Nah. I’m going to want to workshop this one.
We’ve been getting some dinners from Burger King these days for the reason that BK within the space is correct on the best way residence from my daughter’s dance class, so it was very handy to check out this new sandwich. Apparently, there are different particular hen sandwiches on supply proper now: an Italian-style and an American-style, however the Mexican is the one new providing — others are returning fare.
I’ve all the time been keen on the BK long-and-thin hen sandwich, so it was an interesting package deal proper out of the paper sack. Once I opened the sandwich as much as see its lovely innards, I noticed a complete bunch of inexperienced specks that appeared a bit like grains of rice. Later, I’d discover out these are little items of fried (and crunchy) jalapeno. I purposely didn’t lookup the elements for this merchandise earlier than tasting it so I’d pay attention to what I used to be really tasting and never what I used to be “supposed” to style, so the little inexperienced bits had been mysterious at first, though now I can’t think about what else they may have been in addition to jalapeno. The opposite spicy part is a queso that’s slathered on the buns.
For the primary few bites, it was only a common BK hen sandwich. I requested my husband, “Are you positive you bought me the Mexican one?” He gave me a “How silly do you suppose I’m?” look and I sheepishly returned to consuming my strangely-oblong sandwich. Fortuitously, it was at that time I began biting into the little jalapeno crumbs of pleasure and a nice spice started burning my mouth. That is really fairly spicy, with the queso cheese bringing a lot of the warmth, however as I’ve talked about not too long ago, I’m new to spicy meals so my “actually spicy” is likely to be another person’s “meh, no matter.” That mentioned, this sandwich was about as fiery as my meals can get earlier than it turns into an issue and I want a drink (and presumably some consoling), so it’s undoubtedly not bland.
So, between the jalapeno and the queso, there’s undoubtedly some spicy motion happening right here, however is it actually “Mexican?” I can’t resolve. With these two elements, the sandwich undoubtedly ought to style Tex-Mex, however one thing in regards to the stolid taste of the unique BK hen sandwich appears to battle in opposition to that. I undoubtedly need to have it once more although, so it’s clear BK did one thing proper. Though they don’t carry the brunt of the spice quotient, these tiny little inexperienced jalapeno fried bits are addictive; as quickly as I completed my sandwich, I ate all of the little jalapeno items that had fallen onto my wrapper.
There’s one thing in me that doesn’t need to give this sandwich a excessive rating as a result of it’s not “actually” Mexican, however….so what? Extra importantly, it was scrumptious, and deliciously spicy. Now I’ve a brand new dinner order for dance class nights.
