3 Healthy Snacks You Can Enjoy While Trying New Things with Salsa
One of the things that makes salsa so great is there are lots of different ways to enjoy it. And when you choose any of Mama Flasch’s delicious salsas, which are made with fresh ingredients, you get to enjoy the amazing flavor without worrying about overdoing it on calories. Since the fresh nature of our salsas make them perfect for guilt-free snacking, we want to share three different ideas for creating snacks that are just as healthy as they are yummy:
Hummus has a reputation for being a healthy way to enjoy flavorful snacking. What you may not realize is you can combine this option with any heat of salsa for an even more delicious experience. Best of all, it’s surprisingly easy to make hummus from scratch.
All you need is 1 can of garbanzo beans, 3/4 cup of Mama Flasch’s salsa, a dash of cumin, 2 cloves of garlic, 2 tablespoons of minced onion, 1/2 cup of olive oil, 1 tablespoon of tahini and 1 leaf of cilantro. Simply combine all of these ingredients in a food processor and pulse. Then you can put your homemade hummus in the fridge until you’re ready to enjoy it. Combine with pita chips or the crunchy snack of your choice, and you’ll have a delicious option that’s easy to share.
Scrambled Eggs with Salsa
A scenario we can all relate to is being at home on a Saturday or Sunday. It’s mid-morning, and you want something filling to eat but don’t feel like making an entire meal. This is the perfect opportunity to whip up scrambled eggs. Not only does this option have quite a bit of protein to keep you full, but you can make it very quickly with minimal mess. And by adding Mama Flasch’s salsa, you’ll get to enjoy the really awesome flavor.
Lettuce Wraps with Salsa
Another common scenario we’ve all experienced is being at home for lunch or dinner. While you do want a meal, you’d prefer to keep it on the lighter side. Lettuce wraps are an awesome choice for this type of snack meal. In addition to being easy to make, you can put anything from chicken to fish to turkey in them. This can be a tasty and smart way to use leftovers. If you have any avocado in your fridge, it goes great on lettuce wraps as well. For the finishing touch, add Mama Flasch’s salsa to tie all the flavors in your wrap together.
