Tortilla chip recipe??

I wondered if anyone has a good replacement or recipe for really good tortilla chips, and i do me close to the real thing really good. The reason i ask is that i have such an abundance of tomatoes in my garden and there is NOTHING i love more than fresh salsa, but i have to have it with the chips so i am looking for a good alternative. Any thoughts??

I sometimes put the Flat Out low carb wraps under the broiler until they get crispy. I then use them for dipping or as a nacho type base. Not tortilla chips, but they give the crunch I sometimes crave and the toppings or dip choices are unlimited.

Have you thought about canning your tomatoes for this winter?

I eat low carb but i don't have much left to lose and i refuse to exclude veggies of any kind from my WOE. Fresh salsa from the garden did not get me fat in the first place so i don't leave those types of things out of my WOE.

I actually eat fresh pico de gallo salsa with a fork!
Its great on a salad.

Once, I made lowcarb torillas into crisps by cutting them and putting them into the oven. They came out very good. (I just dont eat the lowcarb bread stuff often)

For other dips (esp creamy ones) I like to use raw zucchini slices. They have very little flavor, so you mainly taste the dip.

I use Joseph's flax LC pita breads. A whole pita is 4 carbs and I usually get about 10-12 chips out of that. I slice it in half and make chips, put them in the toaster oven until crispy- really fast and yummy- taste very much like regular tortilla chips and every bit as crunchy! I eat them with hummus usually.

Well .. I'm not actually on a plan ... I'm low carb because I'm Type 2 diabetic and low carb is a great way to control blood sugar.
I eat by my meter but I run between 25-40g net per day.

Oh and as a BTW I'm planning on experimenting with making a low carb corn tortilla using soy flour and vital gluten to bring down the masa carbs.

Unfortunately meds, tests strips etc come before experimental cookery so I can't say how soon a recipe will be forthcoming.

It's Joseph's brand- I just buy it in my regular Shaw's grocery store. Stop and Shop has it too, and I believe they also sell it on Netrition.

Yep, here's the link:

Joseph's Middle East Bakery Low Carb Pita Bread

It's pretty yummy and the carb count is awesome. Also a good way to get your flax in.

Lately I've been on a "pozole" kick. Pozole is a stew of pork and dried chiles and other spices. It also calls for hominy which I Fugedddaout.
There is tons of variations and methods, just search it pozole recipe - Google Search

Anyway, you can use different things to accompany the soup, like sliced radishes, lime, avocado, sliced lettuce or cabbage, and pork rinds. Pork rinds are the new tortilla chips

I love reading posts like this. I think the reason so many people are opposed to the low carb WOE is that they confuse low carb with the specific rules of Atkins induction. They think you eat like that forever, and of course, that's why they think no one could do that for the rest of their lives. I think most people would be amazed to know *the facts* about low carb. It's really NOT bacon, butter, and bunless burgers all the time, and I'm starting to feel more and more insulted when I hear people on TV or the radio insinuate that it is.

Wow that looks fantastic..
I am checking that recipe out.

As for the tomatoes.. have you had any luck with dreamfields pasta (some can't use it, but I have good luck with it)..
maybe you can make some homemade spa. sauce and can it as well?

also I just made cleo's cali/parm pizza crust with only olive oil, tomatos and fresh basil as my toppings and it was fantastic..

daisyhair, i have tried dreamfields and it bloats me up and gives me the worst kind of gas (sorry about the TMI) I canned spaghetti sauce last year and ended up having to throw 3 jars away this year so i will probably stick to the salsa since i don't eat pasta anymore.
