Boulder Canyon Rice & Adzuki Bean Chips

I’ve always loved tortilla chips, but since going gluten-free they’ve become my go-to snack. But plain ol’ tortillas can get a little boring sometimes, so I decided to give these chips by Boulder Canyon Natural Foods a try.

I had no idea what an adzuki bean was – turns out it’s common in China and Japan – so I wasn’t sure how these would taste. I wouldn’t say the chip has a particularly strong or identifiable flavour, but it was subtley different than a corn chip. The red chilies give it a very mild heat.

They also go great with hummus. And chile. And my cat likes them, too.

Unfortunately, Noshwell points out that they aren’t terribly healthy. Deep fried, lots of sodium and all that. But I mean, if you’re eating chips in the first place, that’s kind of what you’re in for.

So would I buy them again? For sure. They’re a bit pricier than your average chip, but they’re nice when you want to switch things up a bit.
