Taste test: These tortilla chips had the same racetrack shapes as the Bean and Rice version and promised a more intense taste with the inclusion of lime and chili peppers. (They've apparently renamed the whole line as Taco Chips instead of Taco Dippers since we did that first review.)
The chips looked largely the same as the other flavor, as the mustardy surface color with bits of black seemed unchanged, but there were also some bits of green and red. I crunched in to find the real surprise — how little difference there was in taste between this and the Beans and Rice flavor. There were minor hints of lime, and to a lesser degree chili peppers, but nothing even remotely bold. It was a nice taste, just not quite what was expected. Those hints grew slightly stronger in the aftertaste, but for a chip promising chili and lime, there was very little of either here.
Smell test: Strong lime smell, with some chile pepper kick.
From the package: “Made with non GMO corn” ... “Auténtico” ... “Taco Chips are for those who demand more than empty calories and ordinary taste. Designed for today's worldly palates, our chips are made from authentic old world recipes using the very best artisanal ingredients. First, on our path to chip supremacy, we first created the perfect shape and thickness from a traditional maize that stands up to salsa and dips. Then added a secret blend of authentic spices to create big, bold flavor. Finally, we cooked each chip to crispy perfection.”
