We have to say, overall we have been pretty darn impressed with Beanfield’s Bean & Rice Chips. We know what you are thinking, “sure Chip Review you are impressed with them for what they are, but compared to “regular” chips, they don’t really compare do they?!” Sure, they are different, we recognize that, and comparing Beanfield’s to your typical tortilla chips is sort of like comparing apples to something even healthier than apples (is there such a thing?), but honestly that’s what we try to do here – compare chips to chips! And these are lip-smacking chips regardless of type.
Beanfield’s bean and rice chips remind us a lot of other rice chips we’ve tried (like Riceworks), more than they do of other bean chips (like Beanitos). Beanfield’s chips have a sort of rustic, hearty, toothsome, grainy consistency that provides a distinct texture and crunch. Softer than your typical corn tortilla chips. And the seasoning also adheres quite well to the rough texture.
Speaking of Beanfield’s barbecue seasoning blend, their recipe is bold, and packed with loads of flavor! Not quite as uniquely delicious as their ranch or nacho cheese seasonings but still impressive nonetheless. Probably what we appreciate so much regarding this seasoning is its overall balance and savoriness. Like we said above, this is not a sweet bbq seasoning, it’s a bit tangy, a little smoky, and all savory! The flavor combo just works well with Beanfield’s hearty chips!
As always, these are our thoughts, we would love to hear what you think. Agree or disagree, let us know.
