Bring on the Nachos! Mexican food is no longer off the table for those with corn allergies!
on July 31, 2015
These are so tasty, fairly crunchy, and hold up well to nachos or dips. And as a corn allergy sufferer, they are exactly what I've been looking for. I've tried fried flour tortilla chips which are always too greasy, baked flour tortilla chips which really don't have any crunch and don't stand up do salsa dunking, let alone nachos. I thought Beanitos were the bee's knees when they came on the scene. They had the crunch and they could tolerate a salsa dunking but could not hold up to a plate of nachos; you'd get a gooey mess. Then I found Beanfields. They keep their crunch, bite after bite. It doesn't matter what you throw at them, I feel like I am eating "corn chips". I can eat them with chili, nachos, salsa, plain, they even have several flavors (all without corn in the ingredients!)
Did I mention the good-for-you protein? Because it is made from beans and rice, both vegetarian sources high in protein, you get a chip that is higher in protein than your average chip. (But come on, that's not why we eat these. It's because they taste so dang good! And us corn allergy sufferers no longer have to say no to the Mexican potluck invites!)
I was happy to find lunch portion size which is perfect for lunches and camp outs to keep the chips fresh. My only gripe is they are pretty expensive. Hopefully more stores will carry them which will increase their demand (& lower cost).
My favorite flavors are the Pico De Gallo, Sea Salt, and Nacho. Other flavors include Unsalted, Ranch, & BBQ.
