There are plenty of ways to make healthier decisions when it comes to eating out at Mexican restaurants and even when preparing it at home…
If you love chips and salsa like me, give these homemade versions a try!
For the “chips” we use one high protein, high fiber, lower carb wrap (Try the Flatout Wraps for a yummy snack!) and cut into wedges. I placed them on a baking sheet and spread a little bit of extra virgin olive oil on them, then sprinkle a little garlic powder. I baked them at 350 for about 8 minutes (keep your eye on them as oven temps vary…nobody wants a burnt chip) When they are hardened they are perfect for scooping salsa.
– Chopped garlic
– Fresh cilantro
– Lime juice
– Stevia (in very small amounts if you prefer a sweeter salsa)
– Chop up all of the ingredients and mix together in your food processor.
– Pulse until you get desired consistency. If you like a chunkier salsa try using a food chopper or hand chopping all ingredients and tossing in a bowl.
– Place the bowl in the refrigerator for a couple hours to chill and soak up the flavor.
Want some other healthy uses for salsa? Try this delicious salsa over scrambled eggs in the morning to get your veggies in or mixed in with your salad at lunch as a healthier alternative to fat loaded dressings.
It’s the perfect time of year for fresh veggies so head out to your garden, local farmers market, or grocery store, give it a try today!
