I was originally going to give you a recipe for homemade baked tortilla chips to go with the salsa, but they came out hard instead of crisp. I thought about where I’d gone wrong, and then I had a bright idea—just buy the chips! Use the baked chips, not the fried ones. If you have really flavorful tomatoes, you may be able to get away without using the tomato juice. Use only mild chilies (not jalapeño peppers).
  • 1 cup chopped tomato
  • ¼ cup chopped onion
  • ¼ cup chopped canned green chilies (roasted peeled peppers), or more to taste
  • 2 tablespoons tomato sauce
  • 1 teaspoon lemon juice
  • 6 sprigs cilantro (fresh coriander)
  • Salt to taste

Place the tomato, onion, chilies, tomato sauce, lemon juice, and cilantro in a food processor. Cover and process until finely chopped. Season with salt, if using.
Diabetic Exchanges: ½ vegetable
REDUCED SODIUM: Use minced fresh jalapeño pepper to taste instead of the canned chilies.
Diabetic Exchanges: ½ vegetable
