Who doesn't love chips? They are so versatile that you can do virtually anything with them. You can add them into casseroles, make nacho's, chips and dip, I've even had potato chips in chocolate chip cookies before! The only thing about chips are... they aren't that good for you. Which is why I absolutely love Beanfields bean and rice chips! These chips are
- Corn free
- Farmed and made in the USA (Hell yeah!)
- Allergy free (they don't contain any of the Food & Drug Administration's list of 8 foods that trigger 90% of all allergic reactions to food)
Now when I told the Mr. we had bean chips, he looked at me funny but when we ripped open a bag of the pico de gallo chips... well let's just say that the bag was supposed to serve 6 and it was gone in about 2 minutes flat. Not only did the Mr. and I eat the chips but I brought in a bag for my coworkers to try. One of the boss's at work always gets such a kick out of me having a food blog. So I thought I would bring in a bag of the nacho chips for him, and he loved them! He shared them with our other co-workers who all raved about them. He even took home the bag, went online and bought more chips.
Now even though these chips seemed to be a major hit both at home and at work, there is one thing I feel I should point out. These are BEAN chips. You can taste the BEANS. So, if you don't like BEANS, you might want to skip these chips. Now that that is out of the way, lets go over the flavors shall we?
Pico de Gallo- First one I tried, first one I fell in love with. There really is no chip to compare it to. You can taste the onion, tomatoes and bell peppers. And when you pair that with the rice and bean chip as a foundation, it just completes it.
Nacho- I hate to compare a chip to another but this tastes exactly like nacho Doritos. They don't look anything alike but the flavoring is spot on. There is a plus with this one. If you have a vegan in the house, these are perfect for them!
Sea Salt- We were a little disappointed in this one. When you think sea salt, you think salty and we just didn't get it with this chip. At first I thought I grabbed the wrong bag when we started eating these because you can barely taste any salt on them.
Sea Salt & Pepper- This is where opinions differ. Again, not a whole lot of salt going on. I could taste the pepper on the chips but the Mr. (who doesn't like pepper) said he couldn't really taste any. Which in my opinion is a good thing because if I even so much as think of putting pepper in our food while I'm cooking, it's as if an internal alarms go off because he is out in the kitchen "getting a glass of water".
Unsalted- Not a huge difference between this chip and the salted. However, these are perfect for someone watching their sodium intake.
Now even though we were not huge fans of the unflavored chips, we still kept saying how great the chip itself was. Plus they would be PERFECT paired with a dip. I once made a creamy mushroom dip that would go great with the salt and pepper chips.
The Mr. and I have already decided to buy more of their chips online.
I received one or more of the products mentioned above for free using Tomoson.com. Regardless, I only recommend products or services I use personally and believe will be good for my readers.
