When you think about it....why should the quest to consume LESS cost MORE?
If you're like most families in this economy, you don't have any extra money to spend on extra diet stuff. Anybody else dieting on a dime?
That's why I love tortillas! $1.20 gets me a mess of corn tortillas and any little extra tidbits in the fridge get wrapped up in them the next day. I'm lucky to have a little salsa garden in the back yard and a neighbor with an avocado tree so we're just about set taco-wise!
Sometimes I make them just with the fat-free refried beans and veggies. The kids love these and they're super cheap!
And the standard size corn tortillas only have 60 calories a piece.
If you cut them in wedges, spray them with cooking spray and stick them in the oven for a few minutes, voila! Guiltless chips. Each tortilla makes 8 which means I can budget in 16 for an afternoon snack. Really good with cottage cheese & salsa!
Also love them with scrambled eggwhites & veggies in the a.m.
