GIVEAWAY: 100 Bags of Beanitos Chips

During a recent visit to Tango Bistro, I was introduced to what is now one of my favorite products.

Kevin and I began our dinner as we do with any night out, we asked what items on the menu could be made corn-free, gluten-free, yeast-free, and dairy-free. The kitchen staff provided us with some direction, and offered to serve many of their appetizers with with corn-free, gluten-free “tortilla” chips.

“How could it be?” I asked.

“A gluten-free, corn-free chip? Are you pulling my leg?” Kevin questioned.

The server looked at us with bright eyes and said, “No, not at all. We serve black bean chips with all of our appetizers”

Betcha can’t guest what we ordered?

There we were two hours later, feasting on an array of dips and chips, enjoying a 100% allergen free evening away from home.

Naturally being the curious nutritionist that I am, I had to ask for the name of the product and their supplier. There was no way I was going to let these babies out of my sight!

One month later we had a huge box of Beanitos snack bags on our front door step. I think it’s safe to say that I kept about 10 bags to myself and I gave out the rest to clients, friends, colleagues, ashram visitors, gas pump attendants, and other random people. I’ve been ranting and raving about these for quite some time, so it only made sense to rant and rave to you all as well!

So, okay… maybe I should talk about why I love this product so much instead of hoping you’ll just trusting me on this one and get yourself a bag ASAP. I’ll break it down plainly and simply:

  • they’re chips made from beans
  • taste ridiculously similar to tortilla chips… but they’re a healthier alternative!
  • naturally gluten-free and corn-free
  • come in four flavors:
    • pinto bean & flax (vegan)
    • black bean chipotle BBQ (vegan – depending on your thoughts about brown sugar) *second favorite!
    • black bean (vegan) *favorite!
    • pinto cheddar cheese
  • high in fiber (5g in each serving), protein, and omegas (in the pinto flax variety)
  • part of the non-GMO project
  • makes for a great lunch companion. I smile ear to ear when I remember I’ve packed these in my lunch box.

Ah, I just love when I find products that are just so darn fantastic. Have you tried these chips? You must.

  1. I would like to try the black bean. I’ve had the pinto (like em) and the chipotle (less of a fan). And, I can’t do the cheesy. So, definitely want to try the black bean.

  2. I would like to try the black bean first… or maybe the black bean chipotle BBQ!

  3. I would die to try those black bean chipotle BBQ… Anything that is BBQ, I am all over it!

  4. vegan pinto and flax! protein and healthy fats. great combo. but theyd be for the husband. hes the chip fiend!

  5. I’ve sent a request on pinterest and will follow you as soon as I’m on!

  6. Umm, Chipotle BBQ…need I say more. Yumm. I’ve been dying to try these! Fingers crossed

  7. I would love to try these and have my gluten-free daughter try them!! It’s not easy keeping a 6-yr old gluten-free!!

  8. eep! I love beanitoes! they keep me regular ;) (okay, that’s just what I tell myself to justify eating them in mass quantities)

    I like you on Facebook :)

  9. My husband really like the black bean ones! That is the only flavor that we have tried!

  10. I love that companies are taking the initiative to create products like this! It’s so refreshing.
    I would either go for the pinto bean & flax or the black bean – all flavors sound great though!

  11. Mmm I keep seeing those at Planet Organic and wondered if they were any good! I would go for the black bean flavor :)

  12. I agree with many others – I would love to try the plain black ones first! And then the black bean chipotle BBQ (hopefully they’ve got some kick then?!)… :)

  13. I bet you would be very popular if you gave these out for Halloween (at least with the parents!). I would probably try the black bean chipotle BBQ first!

  14. And I really want to try the black bean chipotle BBQ because chipotle kicks but. lol.

  15. Wow, so happy you found these! I feel so deprived when I have to pass by the tortilla chips in the store cause I can’t do corn. These sound fabulous! Black bean for me. YUM.

  16. AAAnd i’m trying to figure this stumble upon thing out but im not having luck. I’m not giving up though it will happen shortly :)

  17. I’d like to try the plain black bean first! I find with stuff like this I like to start with the most basic flavor, to get a sense of what it really tastes like! Great giveaway, thanks!

  18. I love black bean so I would love to try the other flavors. I also follow you on FB :)

  19. I would try the pinto cheddar cheese because I am a cheese fanatic. Those look like the perfect snack to take to campus and munch on in between classes.

  20. Holy shmoly! These chips have got people excited! (me too)

    Liked on fb.

    And I would go for chipotle BBQ first, hands down.

  21. Being from Brazilian I am a true lover of beans – along with rice beans are a staple for meals in my country.
    These chips sound too good to be true, it would be awesome to try some. I would love to try the black bean chips! (actually all of them sound really delicious!)

  22. My boyfriend went gluten-free/vegan about a month ago and I’ve been trying to as well…it’s challenging and fun to learn what to cook for him. I have been raw before in the past and I’m trying to maintain a high raw gluten free diet because of health issues. He loves Beanitos! I haven’t tried them…but I love barbecue chips and haven’t been able to eat them, so the first one I’d try is the Black Bean Chipotle BBQ!

  23. My son and I would probably try BBQ since we didn’t get to have much of Grandpa’s BBQing this year! hehe

  24. I “liked” you on Facebook and I would really like to try the balck bean chipotle BBQ flavour. :)

  25. These sound like totally something right up my alley. I would definitely love to try the pinto cheddar cheese flavor. I used to love Doritos so any chip with cheese is a chip for me. Hopefully they don’t give me gas, what with all the beans and all :)

  26. black bean chipotle bbq…the fact that it is bbq flavored is probably the only way I could get my fiance to try a chip made from beans. he is pretty closed minded when it comes to anything healthy.

    oh and i’m following you on pinterest….so obsessed!

  27. I just tweeted about this giveaway! I LOVE these chips, i’ve only tried a few at a festival, but they’re so good! I also love falafel chips :)

  28. Pinto Bean & Flax alllll the way! Also chipotle sounds amazing :) .. i would know, i’ve tried it!

  29. I’ve already tried Pinto & Flax ones and LOVED them. Can’t wait to try the others.

  30. Yum! These would be a great snack to just throw in my bag for the workday :) I already like you on FB!

  31. I want to try the black bean chipotle BBQ first, gotta love the smoky flavor of chipotle <3

  32. These look fabulous! I’d probably try pinto bean and flax, even though the regular black bean sounds really good too :)
    Thanks for the giveaway!

  33. my husband discovered these when he went wheat/dairy free. we love them. we want them! Black bean flavor please!

  34. We served regular tortilla chips at a dinner party recently, and had a bag of these chips set aside for my husband. Everyone sneaked a taste of these chips – then my husband had none left! LOVE LOVE!

  35. Did I mention we love the benitos chips?! We do! Any flavor but cheese (as we’re dairy free)

  36. Benitos chips please! So good next to black beans and quinoa and fresh avocado. MORE!

  37. Oh, these sound good! I’d love to try the black bean and the Chipotle BBQ!

  38. I’d love to try the pinto bean and flax Beanitos. They sound like the perfect snack.

  39. I’d love to try the pinto and flax Beanitos. They sound like the perfect snack.

  40. I honestly don’t know which one I would pick first. They all sound amazing. I think I’d rip open a bag of each and taste test my way through. :)

  41. Black bean chipotle? My feelings on brown sugar can be swayed in the chipotle way if they feed my since-summer addiction to spicy foods! I find myself putting hot sauce or peppers on everything at any meal. These could make it easier to get my fix – and much less of a mess.

  42. Ooohh decisions, decisions – I think I’d try the BBQ chipotle first. Thanks for the great giveaway Leanne!

  43. My husband loves chipotle, so the black bean chipotle ones would be first choice at our house!!

  44. This looks sooo yummy :D I’d try the regular black bean ones first!!1 YUM!

  45. Love the Beanito Pinto Bean and Cheddar – sit at work and eat a whole bag during 8 hour work shift
    finally…. a tasty healthy bag snack

  46. While I would LOVE to win this I am super excited already! I have a very serious corn allergy that leaves me with a very limited amount of things to eat (think carrots, lettuce…it’s that “awesome”) and I had to give up my best love – chips. Years ago. So excited to track some of these down and try them!

  47. Hi Leanne,

    bean crisps are excellent. The best ones i have had so far are hand made “Where Have You Bean” crackers from my local farmers market. I would love to try these too,

    Nellie

  48. Hi :)

    I would love to try the Black bean first! Never even heard of these before. Thank you :)

  49. I liked you on Facebook just now. Not sure why I never did that since I’ve been reading your blog.

    Hope you have an awesome rest of your day ^_^

  50. All the flavors are great! I’ve gotten 2 grocery stores to carry the brand since I first tried them! Thanks for something tasty and good for us! Now if we could get McD’s on the same page….

  51. I would try the BBQ kind.. I swear I put bbq sauce on everything, so me and this chip would be a perfect match! :)

  52. I would like to try the Black Bean flavor! I have wanted to try these before but the price for them is out of grocery budget.

  53. And I would probably try the black bean chipotle BBQ first. I love anything with a chipotle flavor and black beans so these sound like the perfect combination!

  54. black bean because they’re all vegan :)

  55. I have looked everywhere locally to find black bean chips. So many times the package is very misleading. Anyway, I liked you on FB.
