Skinny Tortilla Chips and Guacamole

As prepared by Michelle P,

Skinny tortilla chips and guacamole - brilliant, right?


Well, before things go any farther, I must get something off my chest, lest you give me credit where none is due.  These are not my inventions.

I wish I could claim these Skinny Tortilla Chips and Skinny Guacamole as my own shining creations, but it wouldn’t be right.  The guacamole slim-down is a la Bethenny Frankel, and I can’t remember where I picked the chip recipe up.  Regardless, the end result is enough of a reduction in calories and fat that I treat myself to a full-tilt margarita (or so).  Just call it my little exercise in justification!  (Pun intended . . .)

Let’s start with the tortilla chips, which are super easy to make.  Just buy corn tortillas, cut into triangles with a pizza cutter.

Skinny Chips and Skinny Guac tortillas

A little cooking spray and a sprinkle of salt and you are ready to bake!  For the crispest chips, make sure they don’t touch on the baking sheet . . .

You’re dying for the guacamole secret ingredient, aren’t you?  Sit down.  It’s a bit of a shock.  The calorie saving hero of this recipe is . . . frozen peas.  Yup.  That’s right.

Skinny Chips & Guac peas

Thaw the frozen peas, then puree, and stir the puree into your mashed avocado mixture (I like my guac pretty simple, a little cilantro, lime and salt.  Feel free to season to your taste).

Skinny Chips and Guac mash

The peas also give the guacamole a vibrant green color!

Hope you enjoy!

Cheers, Michelle
