HG's Neat-O Chili-Frito Burrito
HG's Neat-O Chili-Frito Burrito

Frito at Last
This swap is for one of those supreme junk food items we thought we'd NEVER be able to experience sans guilt. Good thing we're wrong from time to time -- this thing ROCKS!

Ingredients:
1/3 cup low-fat turkey or veggie chili
1 La Tortilla Factory Smart & Delicious Low Carb High Fiber Large Tortilla (or alternative below)
2 tbsp. shredded fat-free cheddar cheese
1/2 package Fritos Original Corn Chips 100 Calorie Pack (or other alternative below!)
Optional: 2 tbsp. diced onion

Directions:
Place chili in a microwave-safe bowl, cover, and heat for 45 - 60 seconds, until hot. Set aside.

Lay tortilla flat on a microwave-safe plate, and warm in the microwave for about 10 seconds. Spoon chili down the center of the tortilla. Cover the chili with cheese, and then top with Fritos. If you like, sprinkle with onion.

Wrap tortilla up like a burrito, folding the sides in first, and then rolling it up from the bottom. (Or serve it wrap-style, with one end left open.) Place burrito seam-side down on the plate, and microwave for 30 seconds.

Now CHEW!

HG Alternative! If you can't locate those 80-calorie tortillas made by La Tortilla Factory, use any low-fat, high-fiber, burrito-size tortilla with about 110 calories. Then your burrito will have about 248 calories. Yippee!

(Another) HG Alternative! If you can't find 100-calorie packs of Fritos, you could just use 10 Fritos from a regular bag. But we don't trust ourselves around a giant bag of Fritos -- so we'd just use 50 calories' worth of crushed baked tortilla chips instead!

Sonic Doom
We wanna know which crazy person over at Sonic one day said, "Hey, why don't we toss handfuls of FRITOS inside a wrap along with piles of chili and cheese?! Good idea, right???" Reveal yourself! Too scared? We're not surprised at all. That kooky human created a fast food monster -- Sonic's Fritos Chili Cheese Wrap. The thing has almost 700 calories and nearly 40 grams of fat! But we have to admit, we're a little intrigued by it. Chili & cheese topped with crunchy corn chips and stuffed inside a warm tortilla sounds appealing... like REALLY appealing. So we decided to take a stab at putting our own version together. And we succeeded with flying corn chips! Our Neat-O Chili-Frito Burrito is DELICIOUS. And, um, totally guilt-free. Who loves you???
