GUACAMOLE WITH CUMIN DUSTED TORTILLAS
- 4 ripe avocados; peeled, pitted and chopped
- 1/2 red onion, chopped
- 1 jalapeno pepper, minced
- 2 limes, juiced
- salt & pepper
- chopped cilantro leaves, to taste
- Cumin Dusted Tortilla Chips; recipe follows
Cumin Dusted Tortillas~
- 4 whole wheat flour tortillas; cut into 12 slices each
- 1 tablespoon ground cumin
- 1/2 teaspoon salt
- Olive oil cooking spray
CHIPS~ Preheat oven to 350 degrees. Place the tortilla slices in a single layer, spread out on a baking sheet. Spray lightly with cooking spray and sprinkle with cumin and salt. Bake for about 10-12 minutes on the center rack. Check on them half-way through (at 5 minutes) to make sure they are not burning. Cool slightly and serve with guacamole or salsa.
Like I mentioned at the top, these recipes rocked. You all should have seen my excitement when I realized there was a healthy way to make these yummy-lookin' tortillas. Instead of using corn tortillas and frying them in peanut oil, we are using healthy whole wheat flour tortillas and baking them. How much does this little change impact the recipe nutrition wise? Let me show you!

Since there weren't any changes made to the guacamole recipe, there are no shocking numbers to post. However, I did work out the nutrition facts for you. If the fat is more that you were hoping for (even though it is healthy fat), you can opt for some naturally fat free and delicious salsa. I would recommend trying some mango salsa to go along with these Cumin Dusted Tortillas.
I hope you enjoy this recipe duo!
