Tostitos Nacho Average Food Truck-2

Chef Josh Wolfe (Fresh Local Wild, formerly of Good Wolfe Kitchen & Bar) has just launched a food truck, partnering with Tostitos Canada. Christened Nacho Average Food Truck, Chef Wolfe will take the truck around to various spots in Vancouver through month’s end, preparing some yummy treats with beef sirloin and provolone (Canadian Cheese Steak), mango and BC salmon (Summer Mango Salsa with Flaked Salmon), various brie bites — even desserts, all using Tostitos chip products.

On a warm summery afternoon amongst refreshing cocktails and a large group of local media and bloggers, Wolfe kicked things off at the Waterfall Building Plaza near the entrance of Granville Island. Servers brought out some of the dishes available on the menu.

The Brie Bites assortment is simple and full of flavour. Combinations with cubed brie include apricot jam and walnut, proscuitto and melon, and cranberry jelly.

BC salmon is tossed with mango, cilantro, onion, Tostitos Roasted Red Pepper salsa, and seasoning, for a mighty fine and healthy snack. Who knew the tortilla chip would make such a splash, let alone on a local food truck! Chef Wolfe likes to create challenges for himself, in this case with dessert nachos (with drizzled chocolate bark and salted caramel).

I found a favourite in the apricot walnut bites, and discovered a new chip in the process: Tostitos Scoops, little tortilla cups that can be filled with numerous ingredients for easy party snacks and light meals. Too lazy to cook rice or boil potatoes on a hot afternoon? Try filling a few cups with chicken, cheese, and chopped veggies for an alternative.
