These crunchy rice chips had a nice toasty flavor from the rice. And while I didn't taste any black bean (or maybe I did, I'm pretty sure black beans have almost zero flavor...), I picked up on some garlic and onion. It actually tasted like the chips somehow already had guacamole infused into them, which was kind of amazing. The heat was there, but not overwhelming. No need to go running for the milk because the heat didn't build, but there was a definite tingle.
Rating on the Spice-O-Meter: 4/10
Bottom Line: pretty darn tasty
