- Beanfields Nacho Bean & Rice Chips
These vegan nacho flavor chips are world’s above the leading brand nacho cheese tortilla chips both in flavor and nutritional value. I’m so glad I discovered these chips and would give them a million star rating if I could! If you’re a vegan and used to love Doritos, then you will want to marry these chips because they are just so much better!
Wow! I literally think the clouds parted and these Beanfield’s nacho chips fell from the heavens! How else could they be so delicious?! Oh I know how! It’s probably because they are made of beans (and I love my beans), are non-gmo, gluten-free, all natural, and of course, vegan!
I was perusing the chip section of my local health food store and I was hungry (of course) and the picture of the giant Dorito-like chip on the front of the bag grabbed my attention (I used to love Doritos!). I saw “nacho” and figured there was cheese in them so I started to glance away and then the word “vegan” on the front jumped out at me. It was such a beautiful sight and I quickly grabbed the bag and started smiling and dancing around the store looking for my boyfriend so I could tell him about my discovery! He wasn’t that excited since he doesn’t like Doritos nor is he vegan, but I continued parading around the store cradling the Beanfield’s bag like a newborn baby!
So when my expectations are set really high, I’m always a little hesitant to sample the goods because I’m afraid of being let down. I think if you’ve read this far you can probably already tell that I’m a little high on the bean chips! Hahaha. The first bite evoked
hallucinations visions of some fancy pants gourmet Mexican restaurant serving this to accompany their award-winning guacamole or pico de gallo or something. It really tasted like the most deliciously decadent nacho cheese tortilla chip in the universe, and I truly think it is! The flavor is complex and amazing, and while it doesn’t taste exactly like a Dorito, it is very reminiscent of the popular nacho cheese chip. It actually tastes way, way better than Doritos and the consistency of the chip is so unique, crispy, light, and delicious! I’ve never had a chip made primarily out of beans before so I don’t know how other bean chips compare. The first ingredient is black beans, and the second is navy beans, with the third being long grain rice (so there’s a lot of beans in this bag!). I’m also happy to report that they haven’t caused me to break wind more than usual (for those of you who care about that kind of stuff, these seem to be low on the fart factor scale).
I’d also like to give them props for the fact that they are a family-owned business and every one of their products is vegan and farmed and made in the good ole USA! They also do a lot of other noble stuff for a business that you can read more about on their website if you want.
If you’ve tried these vegan nacho chips, let me know what you thought of them below! If you haven’t, then get to it ASAP, because trust me, they will not let you down.
