The Diet Detective taste tests Pace Salsa Verde and Food Should Taste Good's Multigrain Chips, healthy snacks you can love.

Pace Salsa Verde

The Why: It's spicy, delicious, and low calorie. Pace has been around for more than 60 years, but I would never have guessed they'd come out with a salsa this good.

The Health Bonus: It's so low in calories.

What We Liked Best: All the ingredients can be pronounced by a 10-year-old.

What We Liked Least: Added sugar probably isn't needed at all.

What It Replaces: Fattening dips and sauces.

The Price: $3.49 per 16-ounce bottle.

Other Offerings: Mexican Four Cheese Salsa Con Queso, Pico De Gallo, Triple Pepper Salsa, Tequila Lime Salsa.

Where to Buy: Target, Wal-Mart, major grocery chains nationwide.

Nutrition: Per 2-tablespoon serving: 15 calories, 0.5g fat, 2g carbs, 0g protein, 230mg sodium.

Ingredients: Yellow tomato puree, fresh jalapeno peppers, water, tomatillos, fresh onions, salt, cilantro, canola oil, distilled vinegar, lime juice concentrate, sugar, garlic, smoked paprika, and natural flavoring.

These are okay but they're more of a cracker or a dipper than a tortilla chip. I'm looking for something I can make nachos with. I normally just buy the cheap-o ones from Wal-Mart, they're 140 calories per oz. but I'd like something not fried and with a lower calorie content that I can use beyond just dipping. Anyone have any suggestions?
