Low Carb Keto Baked Cheese Chips

Snacks can be an issue for those of us following the Ketogenic way of eating.  Pork rinds are crunchy and delicious but there aren’t many alternatives for when you just want something different.  This recipe is fantastic because the final flavor mimics a popular brand of cheese flavored baked snacks.

  • Any Variety Thinly Sliced Deli Cheese (I like Swiss the best!)
  • Mortons Lite Salt Mixture or Regular Salt
  • Silpat

This recipe is insanely simple.  Preheat your oven to 300 degrees.  Take your thinly sliced cheese slices and slice them into four quarters.  You can make as many chips as you’d like to have at once being mindful that cheese is very calorie dense and some varieties still contain carbohydrates.  Place your silpat on a baking sheet and place the cheese quarters directly on the silpat.  I’ve seen some other people use parchment paper for this recipe and that’s how I tried it initially.  I don’t recommend this because they will definitely stick to the parchment.  It’s a real pain to get them off.  (Update:  Apparently I’ve been using parchment paper all wrong according to my readers.  If you like parchment then go for it!  I personally like using a silpat because it is reusable and convenient to use!)  The silpat (Artisan Silicone Baking Mat, 16.5 x 11 inches) is non stick and they slide right off.   Dust your cheese slices with a small amount of lite salt (Mortons Lite Salt) to your taste.  Some people may find the cheese salty enough without doing this however.  Place your baking sheet full of cheese in the oven for 30 minutes.  If they start to brown around the edges they’re probably done.  Place the baked cheese on paper towels to absorb the extra grease.  They’ll be soft while they’re warm but as they cool they’ll crisp up more.  Enjoy!

Low Carb Keto Tortilla Chips

Ketogenic eating lacks a plethora of crunchy snacks.  While pork rinds, nuts and vegetables are all great snacks they can get old after awhile.  Enter the Low Carb Keto Tortilla Chips.  We were experimenting with these Mama Lupe Low Carb Tortillas one night and found they’re a fantastic product to make chips with!  They’re the lowest carb tortillas I’ve found and that means I can eat more!  (Just kidding.  Watch those macros fool!)

Preheat your oven to 350 degrees.  While the oven is preheating take your pizza cutter and cut your tortillas into 8 even pieces.  (Like a pizza…)  Lightly coat a baking pan or pizza pan with olive oil.  Just a light coat!  Too much and it will absorb into your tortillas and it will be difficult to get them crispy.  Spread your tortilla wedges out on your pan.  Now sprinkle the Lite Salt over your chips to taste.  Once your oven is heated place the chips in for roughly 6-7 minutes or until you notice the edges start to brown.  Take the pan out of the oven and flip your chips over.  Bake for another 6-7 minutes or until you notice the edges browning.  Allow the chips to cool on a cookie rack.  This is important for them to crisp up and give you a nice crunchy chip.  Serve with your favorite keto friendly queso, guacamole or salsa.  Enjoy!
