Kinda disappointed in the heat level. Not expecting Julio's hot but I don't think these are much past jalapeno flavor.

The truth....this man knows it.

 

Haven't seen these at either the Escarpment or Scary location.   Bummer.

Tried them yesterday and they are really good, just not the heat level I’d like but if you make them that spicy most people won’t buy them so I understand.

Were those Bob’s Texas Style jalapeño chips hot as fuck, or was I just a little kid with pussy ass tastebuds?

Not scientific, but I guess I could eat an atomic warhead and see if it still turns my face inside out, then apply a sour/hot conversion.

kids have much more sensitive taste buds than adults.

The Bob's Habanero chips might have been the best chips ever made.

A quick Google shows that Utz now owns the brand after acquiring the last company that bought out Bob's.

Bob's BBQ, Jalapeno, and Habanero were best in class for each flavor.

If there was every a legitimate use of the wreath fund, buying the Bob's brand and recipes from Utz has to be it.  Can't be more than tree fiddy since the brand has been dead for several years.

This may have been mentioned earlier, but the HEB app is a really good way to find an item within a particular store.  Make sure the app has the store you are in as your home store, then type in the item in the search bar, and it returns to tell you what aisle the item is on.  Pretty handy in my experience.

Yep, I agree.  If you use the list function, it puts your items in an order to get you through the store efficiently.

Taste buds.   So damn good.  Not terribly hot. 

They really varied bag to bag.  You knew when you got a good one bc you'd feel it.

It's not always about efficiency, it's about following the yoga pants.  But point taken.

Might as well just do curbside pickup if you're going to the trouble of building a list in the app.

Those are outstanding, I agree. 

But I suggest that you get you one of their glazed croissants and you’ll never look at the crullers again.

Their glazed croissants, when fresh, are perfection

About to eat a left over one from breakfast... Outstanding. 

Microwaved it a little longer than intended but fuck. It's like the perfect glazed with the flaky texture of a croissant. Awesome rec

So tried this yesterday. Definitely too spicy for me to snack on alone, but it's great in frito pie. Thanks

I don't like it with chips but agree it's great as a breakfast Taco topping.

I live 30 minutes from an heb, so I rarely go to one. The other night I was near that heb, late night and needed some groceries. No kidding, I wanted to buy everything I walked by, even the frozen pizza aisle is glorious, cheeses galore,  fresh this, fresh that. HEB does it right and when I have the energy for a 30 minute drive and shop, I'm going back. HEB does not fuck around. Those of you who make HEB your regular grocery should be extremely thankful.

Does anyone have a recipe for “that green sauce” that is closer to the stuff you get at greasy spoon taquerias? The HEB one is ok but not the same as that spicy, garlic, salty nectar that I lather on my tacos.

Boil 3 to 4 tomatillos (Peel the light shell off) and 1 or 2 jap (whole but no stem). Boil less than 10 mins, until the tomatillos are soft, not mushy.

scoop them out into a food processor / blender. 
 

add salt and garlic powder and one avocado peeled and pitted. Blend, season to taste. I would Start with one jap and taste. 
 

Very easy and quick to Make. You can adjust all ingredients to your tastes

Pretty easy. Roast some peppers and a few garlic cloves until blistered. Put in blender/processor, and a bit of oil. Removing blistered skin is somewhat optional, most people do, I kinda like keeping it for a bit more smoky type flavor. I don't do it often, though, it's a mess and it doesn't last real long in the fridge before it gets funky.
