Baked Tortilla with Yogurt Dip (PLUG)
Corn tortilla chips and tacos are more filling than flour ones, and the non-fried ones have fewer calories than fried ones. Bake these with some refried beans or have them with some chopped tomatoes or a yogurt dip. If you aren’t in the mood to whip up something that requires a lot of cooking, Yogurt dips complement this dish extremely well and fulfil your cravings, too!
