Taste test: These chips did not live up to the heat hype on the bag.
The were very crunchy, kettle-style chips with a sparse, dark red seasoning on them. The flavor was sort of like tomato or sweet peppers at first. It was tasty and distinctive, as I couldn't directly correlate it with any other flavor I've tried. But there really wasn't any heat to speak of as I ate the chip. These was a hot aftertaste, but not one that would necessarily force you to run and get water.
Smell test: Very nice sweet pepper smell.
From the package: “Celebrate the Chiles Toreados tradition. Just as the toreadors inflame fighting bulls with the capes, there's a time-honored secret to heighen the flavor of chiles. Handed down from generation to generation. Chiles Toreados are created by searing fresh chiles on a blistering grill to intensify their heat.
