Taste-Tester Survives Encounter With Subway’s Frito-Stuffed Spicy Chicken Enchilada Melt

Central Floridians and Seattle people, you're in luck.

Central Floridians and Seattle people, you're in luck.

Writer Shirley Qiu spends some quality time with her local sandwich artist in order to try the latest "rare breed" fast-food gimmick, the Spicy Chicken Enchilada Melt, which consists of a chicken sandwich carpeted with melted cheese, seasoned with something called "Chipotle Southwest Sauce," and of course paved with a layer of Fritos poured straight from the snack-size bag. Either out of clever marketing concerns or out of fear of unleashing Frito-enchilada terror upon the rest of the U.S., Subway is right now only testing the limited-edition menu item in Seattle and central Florida. Verdict? Unexpectedly, only one napkin is required to contend with the "saucy enchilada goodness" contributing to a not-so-bad experience. "If finding this sandwich not remotely as bad as I expected constitutes approval," Qiu writes, "then count me in." [Seattle Met]
