Get ready for Cinco de Mayo with this homemade chips and salsa recipe that's actually good for you! The flatbread chips are made from flatbread!
With Cinco de Mayo right around the corner, I have Mexican food on the brain. And while I like Mexican food a lot, so much of it is more than a tad bit greasy! So I started thinking about how to make a healthier version of one of my all-time favorite Mexican foods, chips and salsa. Yup, I'm about to tell you how to make healthy chips and salsa!
The biggest thing that tortilla chips have going against them is that they're traditionally fried. All the oil that they soak up makes them higher in calories: Each handful of traditionally made tortilla chips has upward of 100 calories and at least several grams of fat.
I realized recently that I can easily make chips out of flatbread. To make the flatbread chips, you simply cut the flatbread with kitchen scissors and bake it. It's really that easy! Looking for a healthy flatbread? I used Flatout Light Original.

I decided to dip my flatbread chips into a homemade Mexican salsa made of tomatoes, onion, garlic, and pinto beans. All those fresh veggies provide lots of important vitamins and minerals, and you get extra fiber and protein from the beans. A squeeze of lemon juice adds a fresh burst to the salsa!
I hope you enjoy these healthier homemade Mexican salsa with flatbread chips as much as I do!
