Manomasa: Tortillas With Spirit Launches Three New Flavours
Green Lemon & Pink Peppercorn, Manchego & Green Olive and Tomatillo Salsa
Manomasa (www.manomasa.co.uk), an exciting brand of premium tortillas with spirit, has added three new adventurous varieties to its core range: Green Lemon & Pink Peppercorn, Manchego & Green Olive and Tomatillo Salsa (RRP £1.99 per 160g pack).
Offering a range of tortilla chips, “born in the backstreets of Mexico,” Manomasa pays tribute to the original tortilla chip – the totopo – using traditional Mexican techniques to create authentic tortillas,combined with exciting and original global flavours and ingredients.
The three new gluten-free additions draw inspiration from the existing range by also having a distinctive shape (designed for snacking, scooping or dipping), texture (using super grains such as red and white quinoa for added depth and bite) and exciting flavour combinations designed to suit the modern palate for a unique snacking experience.
Green Lemon and Pink Peppercorn: The Tostada
This circular chip is packed with creamy beans, pepped up with pressed Green Lemon essential oils for a punchy citrus taste. A warm oil infusion of Pink Peppercorns balances the zing of the Green Lemon giving an intense flavour experience. This chip makes the perfect 'tostada' style base for a variety of toppings.
Using the finest white corn masa packed with chickpeas, adzuki, garbanzo and red kidney beans, the tortilla is rested then gently toasted for a smooth, creamy texture.
Manchego & Green Olive: The Dipper
This rectangular chip designed for dipping is layered with juicy Mediterranean olives, spicy pimiento and tangy Manchego cheese made in the La Mancha region of Spain. The cheese is grated, melted and slow dried to allow the flavours to stay sharp and remain full of character
Using the finest white corn masa, the tortilla is rested then gently toasted for a smooth, flaked texture that makes an ideal base for the trio of ingredients.
Tomatillo Salsa: The Totopo Grande
This grain-studded chip is shaped in a large traditional Mexican triangle and is made using a delicious mix of fruity Peruvian Amarillo chilli, a crunch of red and white quinoa grains all blended with tingling Tomatillo salsa. The fresh tomatillos sourced from Mexico are gently macerated into an authentic, rich pulp that's blended with Mexican lime juice and finished with a delicious array of herbs and spices.
Using the finest white corn masa, the tortilla is rested and gently toasted for a light bite that gives way to the distinctive crispiness of roasted red and white quinoa.
Manomasa launched into Ocado with three flavours: Chipotle & Lime, White Cheddar and Sea Salt & Cracked Black Pepper in March 2013 with the promise to shake up expectations of the tortilla chip. The brand brings vibrant, visceral celebration of street life together in one irresistible mouthful.
Manomasa is available from Ocado, Whole Foods Market, Fortnum & Mason, independent delis and farm-shops, priced at £1.99 (per 160g bag).
