Taste test: I've enjoyed lots of Mexican food in my time, including many dishes that included tomato and chicken, but the term "Mexican Tomato Chicken" was brand new to me when I spotted this bag of Lay's from China. I opened the bag to find that the chips had somewhat wiggly shapes with lots of bubbles embedded inside, with a pale yellow color generally, plus lots of browning in various places, particularly near the edges. I had to look very closely to notice some very sparsely applied orange seasoning bits.
I crunched in to find a great crunch, perfectly crisp and brittle. Along with the excellent texture came a mild, tasty flavor that didn't taste all that Mexican, nor much like tomato, and also not particularly like chicken. It wasn't spicy or hot in any way. It did, however, taste great! These were some of the best-tasting potato chips I've had in quite some time. Top-notch chips.

Smell test: Kind of like a standard BBQ chip smell, maybe a hint of chicken.
