Tomato Chutney and Whole Wheat Tortilla Chips

Snacks should be satisfying and nutritious: this recipe works on both accounts. The spices add interest and also offer up beneficial antioxidants. You may even want to make a double batch of the chutney to freeze for when you need a quick condiment to spice up chicken or pork.

Ingredients:

8-8″ whole wheat tortillas
2T olive oil, divided
1/4 tsp salt, plus a pinch for the chips
1 tsp cumin seeds (can substitute ground cumin, if necessary)
1 tsp mustard seeds
1 medium onion, chopped
1 T fresh ginger, peeled and minced
2 garlic cloves, minced
1 jalapeño pepper, chopped (removed seeds to decrease spiceness, if desired)
1 tsp curry power
1 tsp tumerick
2 (14.5. oz each) cans diced tomatoes, no added salt
1/3 cup raisins
2T brown sugar

Instructions:
Preheat oven to 400 degrees. Cut each tortilla into 8 wedges and place wedges on baking sheet. Lightly coat wedges with 1 tbsp olive oil and sprinkle with salt. Bake for about 7 minutes or until wedges are crisp and golden.

Meanwhile, heat cumin and mustard seeds in a large sauce pan until seeds become fragrant, about 2-3 minutes. Remove seeds from pan and add in remaining tablespoon of oil. Add onion, ginger, garlic and jalapeño to pan and sauté until onions become translucent; add in ½ tsp salt, curry powder, turmeric, cumin and mustard seeds. Add tomatoes and simmer for about 10 minutes; add in raisins and sugar and simmer for an additional 5-10 minutes, or until mixture thickens (If mixture starts to thicken too much simply add a little water to the pan). Cool to room temperature or refrigerate until needed and serve with toasted chips. Chutney can be made ahead of time; prepare chips the day you plan on serving them.

Yield: About 12 servings (serving size: about ¼ cup chutney and 5 chips)
