You CAN have chips and dip on a diet!

I love chips and dip. Chips and salsa, chips and quacamole, chips and queso, chips and french onion dip, you name it, I love it. But obviously, they are pretty much on the Do Not Eat list since Tostitos are like 8 points for 12 and it's just all around bad for you.

So I thought my chips n dip days were over.

That is, until...

I watched the new Hungry Girl TV show and saw her make chips out of lavash bread! I had no clue what lavash bread was, but it's like a big tortilla. All you do is cut it into pieces and bake it until crispy, just like chips. The whole tortilla for only 2 points!

As for the dip, her recipe says to mix greek yogurt with salsa (which is good, and only 1 pt), but you can also mix light sour cream for 1 pt also.

But today, we had Frito Lay cheese dip in the fridge, so I looked up the points just out of curiosity. I was surprised to see that 2 tbsp was 1 point. Two tbsp doesn't sound like a lot, but it's a good amount. (Altho I did have 4 tbsp for 2 points... :))

Full recipe here. Let me know if you try it and like it :)

Here's another chip that you should try if you haven't already. I SWEAR they're crispy and delish!
