Are you looking for a healthy snack? Let me recommend this mango salsa and baked tortilla chip combo. I’ve tried baked tortilla chips before, but they’ve never been as tasty as these.
Cut them into six chip-size pieces, pop them in the oven and in 8 minutes you’ll be crunching to your heart’s delight. Or, you could use these handy microwavable chip makers, below.
These chips were even great without added salt. And, you can’t beat the price compared to purchased chips. The mango salsa is a perfect complement to these crispy chips.
On the mango salsa, if you don’t care for spicy food you can sub the jalapeno for a poblano or sweet yellow bell pepper. Add some lime zest for an extra fresh layer of flavor. Try papaya if you can’t find ripe mangos. This salsa travels well so it’s perfect to pack for a picnic. If you’re feeling creative you can add some fresh pineapple to the salsa also but use sparingly as pineapple has a higher calorie content. But if you’re taking it to somewhere like the beach, it won’t be a problem because you’ll likely burn those calories off.
Another cool thing to try to give your salsa an elevated flavor is grill the fruit. Try grilling the mango, either on an indoor grill – like in this video or on an outdoor grill during BBQ season. You can add some paprika and maybe even some chipotle seasoning to the grilled mango for an added mild spice.
- Place in a single on the chip maker.
- Microwave for about 4 minutes or until crisp.
