Low Carb Nachos

I have a craving for nachos…. but, I am watching carbs …. what to do, what to do…

I created a way to enjoy the taste of nachos, without the carbs.  It truly did satisfy my craving and it all tasted so yummy, I didn’t miss the nacho chips … too much!

Anyway, when you are watching your carbs and have a craving for Mexican food, try this out.

Low Carb Nachos

Step 1:

Place a small pile of hard cheese on a parchment paper lined baking sheet.  I used a taco seasoning pre-shredded blend, which didn’t make the “chips” very crunchy, but you can use a Havarti cheese or even a Parmesan, which should make these much crunchier.

Step 2:

Bake in a 400 degree oven until the cheese melts.  This took about 6 to 10 minutes.  I wanted the cheese to be fully melted and beginning to crisp.

Step 3:

Let the cheese rounds cool slightly on the sheet until you can, safely, pick them up and wrap over a rolling pin (or glass) to cool completely and crisp up.

As a side note, since I used a softer cheese, these didn’t fully crisp up and retain their shape.  But, they were still very good.

Step 4:

While your cheese rounds are baking in the oven, go ahead and prepare your nacho fixings.  I browned lean ground turkey and added low sodium taco seasoning.

I cut up tomatoes, avocado, and lettuce.  Go wild here, add what you like.  Other toppings were rinsed black beans, sour cream and taco sauce.

To assemble place a cheese “chip” on the plate and top with your favorite stuff!  As I said, these were a little softer than a chip, so I used a fork to eat, but they were very tasty and satisfying.
