How many points are tortilla chips?
Fried tortilla chips are the greatest temptation at the Mexican restaurant table and wow can the points add up quickly. Make your own and you’ll have a low point treat that is really delicious and stands up to any dip.
These air fryer tortilla chips are 4 points on MyWW Blue, 4 points on MyWW Green, and 4 points on MyWW Purple, per serving size when using a plain, white-flour tortilla and we counted the points based on eating one tortilla’s worth of chips.
Here are some other lower points options:
- Joseph’s Oat bran and whole wheat flour tortillas – 1 point per tortilla on all plans. (Tip: the Joseph’s Lavash breads also work well)
- Flatout Light flatbreads – 2 points per flatbread
- Mission Carb Balance Soft Tortilla (white or whole wheat) – 2 points per tortilla
- Other tortillas of your choice – scan for points.
