With Our Legit Tortilla Chips!
You’ve met our 15-minute keto tortillas already right?! Did you know you can also whip up some awesome tortilla chips with it?! And these really do make terrific nachos.
There’s also not much to them, just a beautiful symphony of flavors. Think layer after layer of our chips, followed by a decent amount of cheese (pepper jack being my fav here), and a spiced up ground beef. Easy enough!
Oh, and if you want to take the lazy route and skip the tortilla chips you’ve got a couple options. You can either go the pork rind route (the baked pink Himalayan ones will work the charm), or you can even whip up some jicama fries (yup, seriously!).
Our Keto Tortilla Chips
These are super duper awesome guys! I particularly love them with a ‘Dorito’ dust topping and some sour cream. Or equally epic with some guac!
There are a couple ways to whipping up the chips, and each will give you slightly different results.
You can either do the tortillas per usual, cut them up and pop them in the oven (or dehydrator) until crisp. Not much extra active time, and solid results for these nachos.
Alternatively, you can go the extra route to get puffy tortilla chips (!!). These do require you to fry them up and them pop them in the oven (so roughly 20 min more). Both are well and good, so read up the post for the actual tortilla chips for more deets.
I particularly love these Kalamata olives in my nachos, they’re totally optional but add a lovely depth. I totally forgot to add them pre bake (oopsie!). But if you do forget, simply pop them under the broiler for a few and pretend like it never happened.
