From our friends at The Salt.
Thousands of people cross the U.S.-Mexico border everyday. An untold number buytostilocos — chips loaded with toppings many might consider loco, as in crazy.
The gastronomic marvel that is tostilocos involves a snack-sized bag of salsa verde-flavored Tostitos piled with hot sauce, pickled pork rinds, chopped cucumbers, jicama, deep-fried peanuts, tamarind candy, pickled fruit sauce called chamoy and a squeeze of lime. All those toppings go straight in the bag, and often spill out over the sides.
This combination of salt, sour, sweet and heat will set you back about $3. And it is not for the faint of heart.
