Cheesy Black Bean Chips

SunChips Black Bean Now Come in a Southwestern Queso Flavor

— September 18, 2022 — Lifestyle
Friot-Lay is ushering in the fall season with a slew of new snack food offerings, including the new SunChips Black Bean chips in both Southwestern Queso and Spicy Jalapeño flavors.

Combining the best of whole grains with real black beans, the new SunChips Black Bean are a delicious take on the classic corn-based chips. For even more flavor, the new bean-infused version comes in two tasty varieties: Spicy Jalapeño and Southwestern Queso. As the brand puts it, "“The bold tang of jalapeño peppers sizzles in SunChips Black Bean Spicy Jalapeño, while SunChips Black Bean Southwestern Queso brings the mouthwatering zest of chipotle peppers paired with creamy queso."

Both the Spicy Jalapeño and Southwestern Queso SunChip flavors will be available this fall.
