Black bean and sweet potato chili with Charleston coconut chips
Have you tried our Charleston coconut chips yet? They're grilled to perfection and lightly dusted with our homemade BBQ seasoning. It's an explosion of flavor! They make an excellent filling in a vegan BLT sandwich, and a great topping for salads, soups and this vegan chili. The only real problem with these chips is that it's hard to not finish the bag once you've got it open! Our coconut chips come in three awesome flavors: Charleston (BBQ), Hula (Salt and Pepper) and Jive (Spicy Chili). We also make plain coconut chips, which can be used in both savory and sweet recipes! Give 'em each a try and let us know which one is your favorite.
