What to dip in salsa?

I'm having some serious salsa cravings. Now, normally, I would grab a pile of corn chips, but I was hoping for something more diet friendly. The salsa is calling my name from the fridge...

    Red pepper slices. Or a spoon. :)

    I second pepper.

    Or make a big salad with some meat and veggies and a lot of salsa on top.

    Carrot chips are suprisingly good with salsa.

    1) Oven-roasted veggies. I can easily go overboard on potatoes, so when I'm doing oven-baked 'fries' (I.E. shake my veggies in a Ziploc with 1 tsp of oil and some seasoning), I add in carrot sticks and green beans to make a bigger side.

    2) You can make your own tortilla chips by cutting the tortillas into eight wedges, spraying with a little cooking spray or brushing a small amount of oil, and adding salt. Then bake at about 350 until crispy. Probably around 10 minutes.

    3) I like putting a couple of spoonfuls on top of an omelette or fritatta

    Also, salsa soup. A big blop of salsa, chicken or veggie stock, and anything else you want to add (black beans, rice, shredded chicken, veggies, etc.).

    I really like salsa on scrambled eggs, if you're looking for something with a little more protein. Or salsa with raw veggies.

    Yes! Salsa on eggs = YUM!

    I eat salsa with a fork at mexican restaurants...my husband gets annoyed. I don't make a mess though. I have it down to a science.

    Homemade sweet potato chips, cucumbers, broccoli.....
  • For a crispy idea, I buy 34 degree crackers- you can have 9 crackers for 50 calories. They come in different flavors ...they do the trick when I am craving the salsa. Which, if you have not tried the recipe on here for Cucumber Strawberry salsa.....do yourself a solid and try it. OMG

    I like salsa on rice cakes.

    While not of the dipping variety, I also like to have baked potatoes for dinners with black bean salsa and a little shredded cheese. Or grilled chicken topped with salsa and avocado. Or whole wheat toast, cream cheese, and salsa.

    You can make flatbread chips. I like flat out flatbread's protein flatbread and I cut it into smaller pieces and bake for about 5-8 minutes.

    Salsa on cottage cheese is surprisingly good.

    I have to agree Scrambled eggs are the best with salsa. I also like fish tacos with peach mango salsa
