José Olé Nacho Bites

Saw these in the freezer section with the typical "NEW!" label on the box, so I grabbed a box.  I got the chicken and cheese variety.  Because Giant is the way it is, I don't know if there are any other varieties.

The directions are incredibly straightforward and bullshit-free, which was a pleasant surprise.  No "flip halfway through cooking", no "ensure internal temperature is 165°F", nothing.  Just the oven temperature, cooking time, and recommended cooling time before digging in.  Perfect.

I was initially a little worried that they'd stick to the baking sheet.  The directions don't say to grease the baking sheet first.  I popped them in without greasing it, to find that they ejaculate probably as much oil as the chicken at Popeyes, and thus the lack of greasing instruction isn't an issue.

They taste pretty much like you'd expect, since they're just corn tortilla with cheese, chicken, and bits of jalapeño peppers.  The jalapeños add just the right level of kick and aren't overpowering at all.

Overall, they're a bit oily, but pretty good.  Just keep a napkin around to wipe the oil off your fingers, and you'll be fine.
