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]
Central Floridians and Seattle people, you’re in luck.
