Tortilla Chips for the Lowest Weight Watchers Points:

Finding tortilla chips that offer the most quantity for the least amount of points can be a bit tricky, but here are a few options:

  1. Baked Tortilla Chips:
    • Brands like Tostitos Baked Scoops or Tostitos Oven Baked Tortilla Chips are lower in points compared to regular fried chips. For example, 1 ounce (about 14 chips) of Tostitos Oven Baked Tortilla Chips is typically around 3 points.
  2. Popcorners Flex Protein Crisps:
    • These crisps are a good alternative. They usually come in at around 3 points for a 1-ounce serving.
  3. Quest Protein Chips:
    • Quest Chips are another alternative that can be lower in points due to their higher protein content. A bag usually has about 3 points.
  4. Homemade Baked Tortilla Chips:
    • You can make your own by cutting corn tortillas into triangles and baking them. One corn tortilla (cut into 6-8 chips) is usually 1 point, making this a great low-point option.

Weight Watchers Points:

Your lunch without the avocado and chips is zero points, which is fantastic. Here’s how you can calculate the points if you add chips:

  • Add Tortilla Chips:
    • Look up the specific brand and serving size to determine the points value.
    • For example, if you use 1 ounce of Tostitos Oven Baked Tortilla Chips (3 points), your meal will be 3 points in total.

Remember to check the Weight Watchers app or website for the most accurate and up-to-date points values, as they can vary by brand and serving size.

Enjoy your delicious and healthy lunch! 😊
