Beanitos Giveaway + Chipotle Bean Dip Recipe

I’m a sucker for a crunchy snack, especially ones of chip consistency. Beanitos is a local company that makes some of the most flavorful gluten-free chips out there. I’ve been a big fan of theirs for a while now, and was pleased to hear that they now have 4 flavors, and all 4 flavors will soon come in single serve packages (this month). Flavors include: black bean, pinto bean and flax, pinto bean, cheddar and flax, and my personal favorite- chipotle BBQ. They are truly addicting, especially when you dip them in this spicy bean dip recipe below.

Beanitos are a healthier alternative to a salty potato chip. They are low glycemic and packed with fiber and healthy omega 3′s. Their products are gluten-free, soy-free, potato-free, cholesterol-free, corn-free and non-GMO. You won’t feel guilty about eating these crunchy chips.
