Our Review Factors
What are we expecting? We expect a bag of crunchy tortilla chips that is in sync with the flavor tags. We set the following parameters for our Haldiram’s Tortilla Chips Review:
We looked for three thing – overall flavor of the chips, how well is the masala coated and overall balance of seasoning keeping the flavor tag in mind.
Crunch and thickness of the chips are two sub parameters we checked for. Both add to the overall experience.

Haldiram’s Mexilla Tortilla Chips – Detailed Review
This section covers further details on each flavor, the ingredients and the overall experience :
1. Sweet Thai Chilli
Haldiram’s Mexilla Tortilla Chips has a black and deep purple color packaging. A 80 gm pack is priced at Rs. 30. It has a shelf life of 4 months.
The key ingredients are : Corn (70%), Edible Vegetable Oil (Palmolein, Cotton Seed, Rice Bran), Starch *Spices and Condiments (Onion Powder, Garlic Powder, Red Chilli Powder (0.8%), Black Pepper Powder, Spices Extract), & Sugar Powder.
Milk Solids, Edible Starch, iodised Salt, Yeast Extract, Soy Sauce Powder, Acidity Regulator (INS 330), Natural and Nature Identical Flavoring Substances are the other ingredients used.
Fresh, crunchy, and crisp! The texture of these chips deserves a thumbs up. These chips justify the flavor tag aptly, thanks to the well-rounded Thai Sweet Chilli flavor.
We loved how well dusted the masala is. The camaraderie between the sweet and chili flavor is spot on. These are a bag of mildly spiced and well salted tortilla chips.
Would pair well with both- salsa and cheese dip.
- Dusted well with the masala
- Spot on crunch
- Salt levels are balanced
A crunchy snack with a nice medley of sweet and spicy flavors, this one is a suitable pick for folks with low spice tolerance.
2. Nacho Cheese
This variant bags a orange color pack. Priced at Rs. 30 (for a 80 gm pack) , it has a shelf life of 4 months.
Here are the ingredients used :
Corn (70%), Edible Vegetable Oil (Palmolein, Cotton Seed, Rice Bran), Sugar Powder, Cheese Powder (6.5%), Milk Solids, *Spices and Condiments (Onion Powder, Red Chilli Powder, Black Pepper Powder, Turmeric Powder, Oregano Powder, Parsley Powder, Spice Extract), Edible Starch, lodised Salt, Yeast Extract, Soy Sauce Powder, Acidity Regulator (INS 270), Natural and Nature Identiçal Flavouring Substances.
Texture-wise, these chips are fresh and extremely crunchy. No complaints here! These were slightly low on the cheese flavor. When you eat any cheese flavored nacho, you expect that to be on the front wheel. Although tasty, these could have been cheesier and dusted more liberally. We have tasted better and more cheesier nacho chips available in the market.
- Adequately salted
- Crunchy texture
- The cheesy flavor is not bold enough. The intensity is mild.
- These tortilla chips will pair well with a cheesy dip or salsa or sour cream.
