This low carb Lime “Tortilla” chip recipe is such a great way to feed that crunchy-chip craving. I used to LOVE the salted lime flavored tortilla chips from the store…you know the ones that are full of all sorts of non-healthy junk and carbs. Yeah. those. <hangs head in shame>
But I’ve got a new outlook on life, a new Trim Healthy body, and this is a healthy and DELICIOUS way to get that yummy tart, twangy, crunchy, salty flavor without all the carbs and junk.
So for today’s installment of Trim Healthy Tuesday, I’m going to show you how to make these amazing low carb chips! But don’t go running off to the kitchen right after you grab the recipe…I don’t want you to miss out on the other AMAZING recipes and Trim Healthy blog posts that are shared here each week.
Let’s make some chips! It’s such a quick recipe, and super easy. You’ll need: Joseph’s Pitas, salt, and True Lime packets (found on the baking/sweeteners/flavoring aisle at my local grocery store). You may be able to get decent results with low carb tortillas, but I haven’t had much luck getting them crunchy/crisp. The Joseph’s wraps, or pitas however crisp up really nicely.
You can tear the Joseph’s Pita open, or cut the edges off like I did here. You’ll get two round halves. Cut your pita rounds into wedges, and spread them out on a cookie sheet.
Next, I mixed up a teaspoon of salt with 2 packets of the True Lime.
Now, the last ingredient on the box IS organic evaporated cane juice (sugar), but that’s really just to give it some body to pour out of the packet. There is really SO little sugar there that you don’t even get 1 carb per packet. So I’m comfortable using a couple packets here.
I gave the chips a few quick spritzes of this olive oil spray, just to help the flavorings to stick.
and then added my lime and salt mixture. I toasted these in the oven for between 5 and 10 minutes at 400*, keeping a close watch to get them just barely brown and toasty looking.
And the super good news? These babies are FUEL PULL! Which means that I can enjoy my own little bowl of chips and lime guacamole when we have Mexican night here.
And OH boy, do I enjoy it.
