Texas chicken has come out with their new Crunchy Jalapeno Texadilla. It’s a combination of their Jalapeno Bombers and Texadilla.

I’ve never tried both of these popular menu items before but I’ve heard good things about it. Especially the Jalapeno Bombers, they’re supposed to be The Bomb. Wanting to know how the combination will be like, I decided to give it a try.

The Taste Test

Curious about how the Jalapeno Bombers would taste, I also bought a serving of those. They come in 6 little nugget-like bits and are actually just melted American Cheese with jalapeno bits fried in a batter.

With the first bite, it’s actually really creamy and thick on the inside and crunchy on the outside. If you eat it while it’s still warm, they actually pretty decent.

The price for this 6 pieces Jalapeno Bombers is RM8.20.

But you gotta like spicy stuff because the jalapeno bits in the ‘nuggets’ really surprise you. They’re soft but when you bite the peppers, it’ll add a sharp taste that overpowers the creamy cheese.

Next up, their Crunchy Jalapeno Texadilla comes with a soft tortilla wrapping two big boneless chicken thighs and four Jalapeno Bombers. Then they’re topped with creamy Jalapeno sauce.

The marketing doesn’t lie I guess?

They’re definitely not kidding when they say big. The whole Texadilla is bigger than my palm! And the boneless thighs are really large too. I just can’t get my head around how big it is and I shouldn’t have bought it with the fries because it’ll surely be a fulfilling meal.

I love how crunchy and soft the Texadilla is at the same time. The tortilla shell is really soft and the chicken bits are juicy and crunchy. However, when I tasted it with the sauce, spiciness alert! I had to immediately get the drinks.

It’s like a smoky and sharp spicy taste that immediately lingers in your mouth. Pair it off with the Jalapeno Bombers, it was really like a bomb in my mouth. It was very spicy and the cheese taste just disappears. I couldn’t take it anymore after halfway eating this.

The Verdict

A set of Crunchy Jalapeno Texadilla comes with a regular sized drink and fries.

Warning: Those who can’t handle spicy stuff, I’d recommend you to skip these. You’ll be scarred.

Okay maybe they’re not as spicy as the bird eye’s chilli but still, they pack quite a punch. I love spicy food but I take them with caution. This will surely get me to the toilet afterwards.

I totally recommend this to the spicy lovers. You’ll definitely love the crunchy chicken with the hot sauce and Jalapeno bits. And you can actually split this in two equal size and share it with a friend.

It’s the sauce that bites.

Fair warning, everything that you buy has to be eaten while it’s still hot. Otherwise, when it’s cold, you’ll only taste the flour batter of the Jalapeno Bombers and a very elastic-like tortilla shell of the Texadilla. Not good anymore.

However, the chicken parts in the Texadilla still gets crunchy even when I ate it later. It’s a wonderful mystery, that one.
