Most tortilla chips contain just corn, oil and salt and less than 150 calories per serving—not bad stats for a food that normally gets relegated to the “junk food” aisle. We searched out the healthiest options (that still taste great). Here’s what we found:

Bye-Bye, Baked: The taste and texture of baked chips often leaves much to be desired and there’s no real nutritional benefit. Baked have about the same calories as fried chips, but more carbs and sodium.

When the EatingWell Test Kitchen started talking about the “flautas” they were making, I admit I needed a translation. But when I tasted Oven-Fried Beef Taquitos, I knew just what they were: deliciously crispy rolled-up little tacos filled with beef—and a healthy surprise.

For the first time in our lifetime, Thanksgiving and Hanukkah will be celebrated on the same day, Thursday, November 28, 2013. (This won’t happen again for another 77,000 years!) For my multicultural family (my dad is Chinese and Buddhist, my mom’s a Jewish New Yorker), the convergence of these two holidays is special because both commemorate freedom and gratitude. Another perk of this rare holiday combination means two food-centric meals merge into one delicious menu that honors both celebrations.

Our double issue for November and December is an easy one to love: it’s stuffed with gorgeous photos of fabulous food and it arrives just when you start thinking about cooking for all the season’s celebrations. Everyone who works at EatingWell found recipes they wanted to make at home after getting to taste them at work—and they were happy to tell me about their favorites.

Smooth, creamy and custardy, a flan is a delectable dessert to enjoy at the end of a special meal, especially Thanksgiving or Christmas. But just looking at that photo with the irresistible baked-sugar glaze on top, I assumed flan would be tricky to make at home—until I tried this healthy recipe for Flan de Queso. (That’s translated as Caramel Cream Cheese Custard, just so there’s no confusion).

Next time you open your pantry, take a closer look at the packaging of your food.

You probably see a cacophony of health claims and healthy–sounding words: High in protein! With omega–3 fatty acids! Contains probiotics! High in calcium! Whole wheat! High fiber! Gluten–free! All–natural! Organic!
