Beans in a chip? Somehow, this brand pulls it off and even manages to make them with all-natural ingredients that are free of gluten and top allergens. All of the flavors are extra-crunchy and perfectly seasoned, but the Nacho, Ranch and Barbecue flavors truly take it up a notch and are crazy addictive. Dairy-free or not, these chips are a complete crowd pleaser.

The “healthy” chip market has exploded in recent years, but one manufacturer has broken away from the pack by producing corn-free tortilla chips in amazing dairy-free flavors. Beanfield’’s Bean and Rice Chips are made simply with black and navy beans, rice, oil, and natural seasonings.

The result is a chip that actually packs in some fiber (4 grams per serving) and protein (also 4 grams per serving). Heck, these chips even offer a dose of calcium (4% of the RDA, or 40mg per serving) – 4 seems to be the lucky number for this company, don’t you think?

Some other tasty facts:

  • Beanfield’s Bean and Rice Chips are farmed and made in the USA, and are non-GMO Project Verified.
  • Beanfield’s Bean and Rice Chips are Gluten-Free, free of the “Big Eight” Allergens (including dairy!), and as mentioned, they are even free of other problematic (for some) foods, like corn.
  • Beanfield’s Bean and Rice Chips are currently available in five seven varieties: Unsalted, Sea Salt, Salt & Pepper, Pico de Gallo, Nacho, Ranch, and Barbecue.
  • Beanfield’s Bean and Rice Chips are available in multi-serve and single-serve packs. (read: they are perfect for lunch boxes)

As for the flavors, we liked every. single. one. I’m not just being nice either, they are seriously scrumptious – even our picky young testers agreed. Here are our brief tasting notes on each of the Beanfield’’s Bean and Rice Chips varieties:

Crazy Addictive All-Natural Flavors (Nacho, Barbecue, Ranch, etc.) - all gluten-free, dairy-free, vegan and top allergen-free!

Unsalted – Good, thick, crunchy, and not overtly “beany” in any way. A great base chip for dipping or if you are shunning sodium.

Sea Salt – Since we like our salt, these would be out baseline chip. Just the right amount of sodium added to address ravings.

Salt & Pepper – Holy black pepper Batman! I’ve never tasted anything with so much pure black pepper that it actually has a natural warming heat. The spice is tempered with just the right amount of contrasting saltiness.

Pico de Gallo – I would describe this chip as full of flavor, but with a mild salsa-like kick. Tony devoured these SO fast that I really only got to try a few.

Nacho – Yes, you heard me correctly, Nacho. Beanfield’s has a dairy-free cheesy chip that won a coveted VegNews Best of Show Award when first released. I admit that they are pretty addictive. The flavor is unique, bold, and not the least bit artificial.

Ranch – Is it like traditional ranch seasoning? Yes, I believe they do have a ranch-flavored vibe. Regardless if how close they are to the original, these gems are flavor-packed and we all loved them.

Barbecue – Each of these unique, crunchy chips has a lightly sweet but savory barbecue flavor with a nice smoky vibe. The generous seasoning (just look at that picture below!) is beyond addictive.

  1. I recently purchased a bag of Beanfields Black Bean, Navy Beans & Brown Rice Nacho chips at Whole Foods. I do not eat chips that often, but WF’s had such a nice selection of these chips, I decided to try them. They are tasty, and quite good, and of course, I love the fact they have healthier ingredients then most chips. I will probably try some of the other varieties as well!

  2. Are your products kept separated from the products that may contain wheat? I have celiac and I nervous upon reading your allergen information!

  4. Alisa – your review has inspired me to give these a try. Because my kids and I have to avoid dairy (and gluten), we are always on the lookout for a new and tasty snack. Thank you. And keep up the great work on your web site.

  5. I love this product! As someone who is a gluten free vegan it’s nice to have an indulgence every once in awhile. Sea salt is my favorite flavor.

  6. THANK YOU Beanfields!!! Several months ago, we learned that our son needed to reduce his already restricted diet by one more major ingredient: corn This was a bit of a bummer to be sure; nachos has been one of his absolute favorite foods! Luckily, we sampled a bag of Beanfields and he is such a happy camper!! His favorites are the Nacho flavor and Pico de Gallo flavor but we also use the Sea Salt flavor to make our own nachos!!!

  7. I absolutely love Beanfields (Nacho & Pico de Gallo esp). I have a nerve condition that requires me to eat a good amount of protein and sodium. These chips fit the bill perfectly and taste delicious.
