Snack attack!



My husband and I have a big, huge, gigantic, humongous problem.  We love snacks!  It doesn't matter if we are outside in the yard, inside watching TV, or playing games, one of us will undoubtedly bring up the idea of a snack.  Then we are both on a mission to find something to munch on.  Fresh fruit and veggies are great, but they just don't cut it when we are having a snack attack. 

In an attempt to make a snack that we wouldn't regret, I whipped up a batch of Sun Dried Tomato Hummus.  THEN....I realized we didn't have anything suitable for dipping, except of course veggies, and I...uh...well... already mentioned that the veggie option was not exciting.  After searching the pantry and fridge, the only possibility was a package of whole grain tortillas.  I decided to try and make tortilla chips with them.

I brushed olive oil on both sides of the tortilla and sprinkled with just a little sea salt.  Then I used a pizza cutter and sliced the tortilla into eight wedges.  I placed them on a pizza pan and put them in the oven at 375 degrees.  After 7 minutes I flipped the wedges over and baked for another seven minutes. 

The homemade chips turned out well and were a healthy and yummy alternative for dipping into the hummus.  And.... the best part was that our snack attack was satisfied with no guilt!

  1. No guilt snacks are a GREAT idea. I just bought five pounds of organic (dried) garbanzo beans to pressure can for making hummus! Did you post the recipe a while back?
