Homemade Chips and Salsa- 40 calories


Have you ever made your own chips? I’m about to shock you because they are super easy, all you need is a Pizza Wheel to cut the tortillas and a little spice to make them delicious.

I made this salsa one day when I needed some, but was unable to run to the store. I love it with, and on everything but my favorite combo is Salsa, Homemade Chips, B&E Merlot and a warm afternoon! The spice brings out the flavors in Merlot, and don’t stick your nose up at Merlot!  Better known as the Bordeaux grape, it’s making a BIG comeback! Order some B&E and you will be a believer like this food and wine journalist is.



1- 28 ounce can of organic crushed tomatoes

1 garlic clove

½ teaspoon garlic powder

½ red onion finely chopped

2 jalapenos

¼ cup chopped cilantro

salt and pepper to taste


4 whole wheat tortillas

1 tablespoon olive oil

1 teaspoon garlic powder

½ teaspoon onion powder

¼ teaspoon chili powder

1 teaspoon salt



-Cut the jalapenos in half-length wise, scrape out the seeds and ribs and discard. Finely chop jalapenos and set aside.

-In a large bowl add the tomatoes, chopped onion, garlic powder and jalapeno. Using a fine cheese grater grate the garlic clove into the mixture, add in cilantro and mix well. Add salt and pepper to taste.

-Heat the oven to 325 F. Add oil to 2 of the tortillas, place other 2 tortillas on top and rub around. In a small bowl combine the spices, then sprinkle on tortillas and rub together once again to spread around.

-Use a Pizza Wheel to cut the tortillas like a pizza into 12 triangles, spread out on two rimmed baking sheets and place in oven for 10-12 minutes. Once they are golden brown and crispy they’re done.
