Healthy Tortilla Chips with Homemade Salsa

Healthy Tortilla Chips with Homemade Salsa

Have you ever made your own healthy tortilla chips? I’m about to shock you because these are super easy to make. All you need is a Pizza Wheel or scissors to cut the tortillas and a little spice to make them delicious.

I made this recipe one day when I needed some salsa, but was unable to run to the store. I love it with everything, but my favorite combo is Healthy Tortilla Chips with Salsa and 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.
