Drooling over Mexican nights? Try this Low Carb Nachos Recipe! This Low Carb Nachos is gluten free and grain free that is beyond delicious and at the same time, healthy. The best part about these low carb nachos is that the ingredients are so simple. Ground beef, cheese, veggies, and spices are all you need to create these gorgeous, colorful keto friendly nachos.
There’s also not much to them, just a beautiful symphony of flavors. Thick layer after layer of chips, followed by a decent amount of cheese (pepper jack), and a spiced up ground beef. If you want to take the lazy route and skip the tortilla chips you’ve got a couple of 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). If you have been missing nachos because you want to avoid the high carbs, corn, and unhealthy oils that are in regular nachos, then these will be an absolute treat for you.
Make a batch of our keto tortilla chips. Try and get them extra crisp by either using a dehydrator or leaving them in the oven at around 250F (time will vary, so check in on them every 15 min or so). Set aside to cool while you prepare the rest. Cook the ground beef first before proceeding to the next step.
Turn on the broiler.
In a baking sheet or oven-proof skillet, arrange a layer of tortilla chips, followed by cheese, beef, and olives (optional). Repeat with a second layer and broil until the cheese melts. I prefer to do a quick broil to ensure the meat juices don't turn the tortilla chips soggy.
Serve right away with toppings of choice.
For Ground Beef:
Heat up oil in a skillet over medium heat. Add in garlic, onion, bacon (optional) and cook, stirring often, until the onion begins to caramelize (7-10 minutes). Add in the ground beef with the taco spices, and continue to cook until the beef is cooked through. Try and drain your beef of excessive juices so it doesn't turn your tortilla chips soggy.
Please note that nutrition facts were estimated assuming a yield of 4 (tortilla chips, beef, and cheese). Nutrition values for the toppings will vary a lot depending on quantities, etc (but on average, they won't be more than 1-3g net carbs).
