Semi-Healthy alternative to Tortilla chips (for salsa)?

Is there anything out there that I could use when I have a craving for Chips-n-Salsa?

I can go 100% healthy, basically living on chicken and veggies, but for some reason I always get this itch for chips and salsa.

What is a good alternative 'scooper' for my salsa? (uhh...that doesn't sound right )

Thanks,
SQ

They make whole grain tortilla chips..I really dont know how much better they can be.. Look at sodium, the whole grain are way higher.. (obvious reason) . Also, when you compare them side by side, it seems as the white corn are better. Now, I know whole grain is better, im just sayin

I take cottage cheese and mix it with the salsa when I am jonesing for some. It may sound weird, but it really is awesome.

Most still are high in fats.
Just pay attention to what oil they use to fry them.

Honestly, whenever I eat out Mexican...I just substitute warm or slightly burnt corn tortilla's for chips and chow down!

I would buy "flax seed wraps" and cut them into squares, and toss em in the toaster oven.

They are actually pretty damn good

You can buy them at Wal Mart... they are in the deli, not on the bread/tortilla aisle.

I go through tons of fat free cottage cheese. If you have a stick blender, you can throw a some in with your shakes, makes em nice and creamy. I mix it with salsa, fruit, you name it. Once I read in Flex about someone mixing it with tuna. I will never make that mistake again.
