I have a serious chip and salsa problem. I can be watching what I am eating and doing well at eating healthy, fresh, low carb foods. Then it happens. The family wants to eat at Chili’s or the local Mexican restaurant. And the chips and salsa show up in front of me and I lose all self-control. Have you been there? Please tell me I am not alone. Now, I have conquered my own easy salsa – restaurant style recipe at home.
The farm store by us, Rural King, sells the most amazing tortilla chips. You know the thin and super crispy ones that Chili’s has with their salsa? Yep, the farm store has them too. As if we need another reason to go to Rural King. I buy them three pounds at a time…Literally, I buy my chips at the farm store.
Calf Feed. Check.
Tortilla Chips. Check.
I am my own worst enemy. Truly. Why on earth would anybody buy three pounds of tortilla chips at a time? It is like God is telling me to make a big old bowl of salsa and just devour it one chip full at a time.
