This slightly spicy dish includes its very own dipping sauce. We think of everything...
1 large onion
1/2 cup Fiber One Original bran cereal
1 oz. (about 15) low-fat baked tortilla chips (like Guiltless Gourmet)
1 tsp. dry taco seasoning mix
1/2 cup fat-free liquid egg substitute (like Egg Beaters Original)
1/2 cup salsa (not too chunky)
2 wedges The Laughing Cow Light Creamy Swiss cheese
Preheat oven to 375 degrees. Prepare 2 baking sheets (or 1 extra-large sheet) by spraying with nonstick spray; set aside.
Slice the ends off the onion and remove its outer layer. Cut onion into 1/2-inch-wide slices, and separate into about 24 rings. Set aside.
Place cereal, chips, and taco seasoning in a blender or food processor. Grind contents to a breadcrumb-like consistency. Transfer crumbs to a plate and set aside.
Fill a small bowl with egg substitute. One at a time, dunk each ring in egg substitute, give it a shake to remove any excess, and then coat it in the seasoned crumbs. Evenly place rings on the baking sheet(s).
Bake in the oven for 20 - 25 minutes, carefully flipping rings over about halfway through.
Meanwhile, in a microwave-safe bowl, combine salsa with cheese wedges, breaking cheese wedges into pieces as you add them. Stir well. Microwave for 45 - 60 seconds, until hot. Thoroughly stir until uniform.
Serve rings with sauce for dunking -- YUM!
