Rattling around in the kitchen, taking inventory of the absolute MUST haves for the week out of our dwindling grocery budget (which is also doing double duty as our gas budget, bill budget, clothing budget and everything else budget)... and I realized that Austin had not eaten most of the wraps I bought for him two grocery trips ago... meaning that those wraps would be going bad/turning green before the next major trip. So I...
sliced up the tortillas and put them on a cookie sheet coated with PAM spray... sprinkled them with cumin, garlic powder and lime salt on one batch... sprinkled the other batch with cinnamon, nutmeg and a tiny bit of sugar... and baked them. Voila! Homemade tortilla chips without any of those pesky transfatty things!
And then... I realized that I had two ripe avocados that needed to be put into use... so I mushed them up with 1/4 cup of light sour cream, half a tiny can of green chilis, cumin, garlic powder and more of the awesome lime salt... and BAM! I have guacamole to go with my tortilla chips.
Yep. I'm feeling pretty proud of myself right now. We have healthy snacky foods out of what could have been the unused discards of the week!
