Keto Nachos with Homemade Tortilla Chips

OMGosh these nachos! These keto nachos are SO good that everyone is going to love them, even if they are not following the keto lifestyle.

To make them you need to make some keto tortillas first and then bake the tortillas until crispy (you can also deep fry them but I preferred the baked version).

Since you are already making tortillas you can double the batch and have some ready to make tacos too. The tortillas are freezer friendly so I made a large batch just to keep them on hand when Mexican food cravings strike. Speaking of cravings, pair our Mexican Cauliflower Rice with your favorite dishes!

Whether you’re looking for something yummy to make for game day without feeling like you’re missing out or just need a quick weeknight meal, you’re going to love these keto nachos made with homemade tortilla chips.

And although we’ve kept our nachos vegetarian, that doesn’t mean that you can’t pile on the meat. They’d be great with loads of spicy ground beef, pulled pork, or chicken. Layer the chips with lots of cheese, veggies, and whatever meat you’d like for a meal (or appetizer) that the whole family will go crazy for.
