Eating healthy doesn’t have to be boring! Replace tortilla chips with baked sliced plantains, a healthier alternative that still give you a great crunch and taste fantastic (and they are Whole30 approved!). Although they look like bananas, plantains are actually NOT sweet when green. They are more starchy which makes them a nice substitute for chips as they taste more like a potato than a banana. You should be able to find plantains at your mainstream grocery store – I was able to find them at my local Albertsons for under $1 per pound.

These plantain chips didn’t last long in our house! Next time, I may even slice them lengthwise for a longer chip. I topped mine with lots of Pico de Gallo and chopped avocado. Enjoy!
