I've been looking for more healthy snacks to try lately. I don't like eating potato chips or other nacho chips because they're not good for you, and I get tired of eating popcorn all the time.

When I received the box from Beanfields I quickly opened it and saw some great flavors that were very tempting to try right away! The varieties Beanfields offer are Unsalted, Sea Salt, Pico De Gallo, Salt n' Pepper and Nacho. So what did I do, I ripped open my first package which was the Nacho flavor.

First I inhaled the smell of the bag of chips which was great, and then I dug in. They were very crispy and the flavor was right on, just the amount of spice. I really loved the texture of them also. You can see the black beans and they are nice and crunchy. They also have navy beans and long grain rice for ingredients. Not a lot of junk you can't pronounce at all. You can tell they aren't like regular corn tortilla chips. They are way better! I then tried the Pico De Gallo, which is shown in a closeup below. These are probably my favorite of all the flavors.

My kids wanted to join in and so we finished off a couple of bags right away. Yep, we were addicted to them already. I was glad to see that they approved and were eating something a whole lot better than some junk food. My son Travis ate a whole bag of the Nacho flavor himself in 5 minutes or less. Well, it was a smaller bag so I guess that wasn't bad for a boy! You can use these for dipping too, which would be great. I didn't have anything to dip them in at the time, but enjoyed eating them alone just fine and dandy. The other flavors were very good, I might add. I'm saving most of the Unsalted variety for making nachos. My husband's favorites were the Sea Salt and Salt n' Pepper. Hubby said, I quote "these are good snacks", as he chomped away. Then I told him, "yes, they're a lot better for you too"! He thought they were just the right amount of sea salt and pepper and ate them out of the bag, along with a drink.
