    Primal Recipe to Substitute 'Corn Tortilla Chips?'

    Does anyone have a primal cracker recipe that they have created or found that tastes similar to corn tortilla chips that would be good with guacamole, salsa or alone? I am about a month into the Primal Diet and still miss corn tortilla chips sometimes. Thank you! =)

    Use pork rinds. You won't look back.

    i've resigned myself to eating salsa w/ a spoon. Of course, i'm eating at home, so that's OK. And i turned one of my salsas into soup. If i'm craving nachos, i put the same toppings on mushrooms & broil.

    there's a no grain recipe for enchiladas around here but if i'm craving enchiladas, I just go ahead & make them w/ regular corn tortillas. It's just a very occassional treat.

    I use guac and/or salsa as a topping on meat or eggs. I also use celery as a "cracker."

    If you and your fellow chip eaters can really control yourselves, Mark has an excellent recipe for primal crackers . The calories add up really quickly though. I make these crackers when I have a bellyache

    I substitute green bell peppers for tostitos scoops. They go great with buffalo chicken dip, I bet they would be great for salsa too.

    Some time last year, my "primary guacamole delivery device" became zucchini slices, about 1/8" thick or so, sliced on an angle so they resemble flat oval "chips"...

    If you are not carb counting plantains make a good 'chip' too. Or fry up some butternut squash. I think there is a recipe out there somewhere for veggie chips.

    Shrimp dipped in salsa or guac is awesome!

    Eggs topped with salsa, chicken topped with salsa, fish topped with salsa!!! lol

    Bacon to scoop guac is such a treat!
