Here's an appetizer that gives you more than just calories. Salsa, used as a dressing for tortillas, provides vitamins C and A. Broiling instead of frying the tortilla chips eliminates 54 calories (6 grams fat) per serving. Using salt-free salsa and tortilla chips helps keep sodium content to a minimum.
6 corn tortillas
3 tablespoons red wine vinegar
2 tablespoons chopped cilantro
1 small sweet white onion, chopped
1 large tomato, diced
1/2 avocado, diced, optional
Cut each tortilla into 4 triangular pieces. Place tortilla triangles on baking sheet and place under broiler about 1 minute on each side, or until crisp. Combine vinegar and cilantro in bowl. Add tortillas, onion, tomato and avocado. Toss to coat well. Makes 6 servings.
