Tortilla Chip Fake out

Meet my newest creation. Fake out tortilla chips, folks. I've talked about the La Tortilla Factory Low Carb Tortilla's several times before, but I've found a new use for them; homemade baked tortilla chips. I love tortilla chips, but one serving (1 oz = about 13 chips), is usually around 150 calories, and with the open, bottomless bag in front of you, most people don't stop at one serving.

My solution?
Preheat the oven to 450
Take one tortilla and use a pizza cutter to slice it up into strips.
Spray a cookie sheet with a non-stick spray.
Spread the tortilla strips onto the pan.
Spray them with a bit of non-stick spray to help them crisp up.
Stick them in the oven until they are slightly browned.

Result: Baked tortilla chips. Portion controlled for your delightful ingestion. 80 calories, 8 grams of protein, and 12 grams of fiber. Dang.

I ate dipped mine in my lentil soup for lunch today, and even dipped a few into my favorite Costco mango salsa. Divine.

Hello, thanks so much for the tortilla chip recipes - I love that idea! We also use the La Tortilla Factory Low Carb/High Fiber Tortillas all the time too! They are great b/c only 80 calories per wrap!

We use the wraps for all of our meals – breakfast, lunch and dinner (pizzas) although can be also used for snacks (you just have to get creative).

If you are interested, we list one of our favorite recipes (Italian Pizza) under our 'Food Findings' section.

Hope you can enjoy too! Thanks and look forward to reading more! :-)
