Helpful hints

  • Each microwave gives different cooking times, but you will know the corn tortilla is done when it smells like popcorn cooking.
  • Use 6 unsalted corn tortilla chips as a short cut.
  • Corn tortillas are high in phosphorus compared to flour tortillas or white bread. Limit corn tortillas to help reduce phosphorus, especially if your lab values have been higher than the normal range.

Valentine’s Breakfast Eggs
Mary Ann says:

What would you serve with this? Dietitian comment: You could make the Stuffed Strawberries for a special Valentine's Day breakfast. A serving of berries or other fresh fruit. Add hot coffee or tea or beverage of choice to complete the meal.
