Taste test: Does this look like a giant bag of Taco Bell Hot sauce? It was supposed to, but it actually contained Taco Bell-branded tortilla chips based on that sauce. (If Fire's not your thing, they also have a version based on Taco Bell's Mild sauce.)

The chips had 1/6-circle shapes, with bubbly surfaces bearing a dark red color and lots of seasoning powder. The gold standard for very hot, red-colored tortilla chips is Takis Fuego, and this red color really didn't compare — it was sort of a dull red, not the on-fire red of Takis. I crunched in to find that the first few bites were decidedly lacking in fire, with a very mild taste. The heat did arrive in earnest after a delay, with a strong heat and a flavor that was well in line with the packets of Fire sauce. A cold beverage or some sour cream would work well with this — I used both. The heat lingered too, roaring back after taking a sip of juice to temper it for a while. It was strong heat and nice taste, but neither aspect was as impressive as those Takis.

Aroma: Smells like taco powder and hot peppers.
