Texan Original Chipelada Michelada Flavored Tortilla Chips
Taste test: These chips promised a flavor that I'd never heard of — Chipelada — and Googling around, it turned out not to be a real word, as all of the references we could find were referring to this very product. Michelada, shown as sort of a secondary name or description underneath Chipelada, turned out to be a real thing of the alcoholic beverage variety, so Chipelada was kind of a play on chips and Michelada.
The quarter-circle chips were large, pale and had a bit of seasoning on the surfaces. Most of the chips had some curl to them, and there were lots of little bumps on the surfaces. The chips had a soft crunch, with middling crispness, and taste was mildly lime-like initially, transitioning into a mild hot pepper taste in the end. Not a flavor that I'd go way out of my way to find, but good enough to add some interest to tortilla chips. Pretty good, especially with beer.

Smell test: Some nice spices on top of the salted tortilla smell.
