I get chips and salsa cravings all the time, and it’s easy to go overboard real fast at the Mexican restaurant. So, here is my healthier version of chips and salsa that’s sure to fill you up with ingredients that are actually really good for you. The chips are high fiber wheat tortillas baked with sea salt in a small conventional oven. And, I’ve added fat-free cottage cheese to the mix so that I feel like I’m actually eating a snack with significant substance. Packed with protein and fiber, this snack will leave you feeling fuller longer.
Estimated Time: 10 minutes
Ingredients (serves 1):
- Fat Free Cottage Cheese – 3/4 cup
- Premade Pico De Gallo Salsa – 2 tbsp
- La Tortilla Factory Low Carb, High Fiber Tortilla – 1 large
- Sea Salt – 1 tsp
- Cooking Spray – 1 spray
Cut up the tortilla into bite-size pieces and place on a piece of tinfoil. Spray the tortilla pieces with a dash of cooking spray and sprinkle sea salt on top. Pop in the conventional oven and set to “Toast” for about 10 minutes or until the chips are crispy (time may vary based on oven). In a small bowl, combine cottage cheese and salsa. Use the oven-baked tortilla strips as chips and enjoy the dip!
Though, if you don’t have time to make your own chips, no worries! Opt for some low-fat tortilla chips from the store. And to be frank, I eat the cheese and salsa alone all the time as well 🙂
