How to Make Low Carb Tortilla Chips
These fantabulous low carb tortilla chips are made from almond flour and mozzarella cheese for a flavor profile that’s just off the charts delicious. They’re waaay better than buying the low carb tortilla chips Trader Joe’s sells, because you gave full control of the ingredients in them, their shape, and how crispy you make ’em.
Low carb tortilla chips are a great addition to your low carb recipes, as you can spruce up so many other low carb foods with them — think low carb taco salad or low carb taco soup to name a few! With this low carb tortillas recipe, your low carb meals will never be bland or boring again!
This recipe uses low carb flour (almond flour to be exact) which is a tasty gluten free alternative. However, gluten is a binder that holds ingredients together, and as amazing as almond flour is, it lacking binding capabilities. To remedy this, we’ll toss in some mozzarella to hold our low carb tortilla chips into little bite sized pieces of perfect!
Here’s how your new favorite treats come together:
Using the microwave or a double boiler, melt the cheese in a heatsafe bowl.
Stir/knead in the almond flour and seasoning until a well combined dough ball forms. Place dough ball on parchment paper and allow it to cool to a manageable temperature.
Place a second sheet of parchment paper on top of the dough ball. Roll dough into a long rectangle with a rolling pin until it is about ¼” thick.
Remove the top sheet of parchment and cut dough into chip shapes with a pizza cutter. Place the cut chips on a sheetpan and into you preheated oven on 350 degrees. Bake chips for 14-16 minutes or until the cheese browns on the edges.
Pro Tip: The browner the chips are, the crispier they’ll be. Getting that crunch we all love without burning your chips may be best achieved by letting them cool in the oven but please keep in mind that temperatures and cooling times will vary with individual appliance.
Cool chips and enjoy (or serve)!
Just like that, your chips are ready for snacking! If you check out the low carb tortilla chips Walmart sells or the low carb tortilla chips Kroger sells, the ingredient list will be extensive and full of additives — which is one of the many reasons why I prefer this recipe!
Keto Tortilla Chips Variations
There’s really no limit to the number of ways you can enjoy these scrumptious keto tortilla chips. The key ingredient in keto tortillas is the cheese. Rich, melty cheese sends your taste buds into overdrive and gives your keto tortilla chips that light, crispy texture that you crave.
So, if mozzarella isn’t your thing then choose a different cheese, as long as it’s one that melts well. Cheeses like parmesan that don’t melt well, will have to be reserved for toppings on your favorite keto snacks.
You can also mix in various spices — low carb taco seasoning anyone?
