How to make Keto Cheese Chips: 

The ingredients you’re going to need to prepare Keto Cheese Chips: 

  • 4 slices of cheese – You can use American, cheddar, or provolone from the deli counter at the grocery store. You want your slices cut into 1½-inch- square slices.
  • Grated parmesan cheese – You can top your cheese chips with grated parmesan if you’re a cheese fan. This is optional, but it will add extra flavor and texture. 
  • Jalapeño pepper slices – If you’re someone who likes a little kick to their foods, then feel free to top with fresh or pickled jalapenos. This is optional, but again, it will add more flavor to your chips.

The instructions for how to prepare Keto Cheese Chips: 

Step 1: 

Preheat the oven to 350ºF. Line a baking sheet with parchment paper or a silicone baking mat.

Step 2: 

Arrange the cheese slices on the prepared baking sheet, leaving a little space between each. Sprinkle some parmesan cheese on each slice and top with a slice of jalapeño, if using.

Step 3: 

Bake for about 15 minutes until the cheese bubbles up. Let cool for at least 5 minutes. They will crisp up as they cool. Serve with some freshly made guacamole (recipe below)

Ingredients you need to make Keto Guacamole: 

  • 1 fresh jalapeño pepper – Similar to the chips, you can add jalapeno peppers if you want a little extra spice. Make sure your jalapenos are diced with seeds. This is optional but will add more flavor. 
  • 2 large avocados, diced – Avocados are the main ingredient in guacamole. Avocados are loaded with healthy fats, they taste great, and they’re low-carb. You need to make sure that your avocados are ripe enough before making guacamole. If your avocados are not ripe enough, it will be very hard to combine the ingredients. 
  • Juice of ½ lime – Not only does lime add extra flavor to guacamole, but it also helps prevent it from turning brown. The citric acid that’s in the lime juice will preserve avocados for a longer period of time. 
  • 1 chopped tomato – Tomatoes are a key ingredient in guacamole. They add a little extra texture without completely changing the flavor and/or taste. 
  • 1 small red onion, diced – Onions are another key ingredient in guacamole. Unlike tomatoes, onions give the guacamole tons of added flavors. Onions are also loaded with vitamins and minerals that are great for you but might be bad for your breath! 
  • 1 small bunch chopped fresh cilantro – High-quality guacamole almost always has fresh cilantro included in the ingredients. Cilantro gives guacamole the signature flavor and makes it taste authentic. 
  • Salt and pepper to taste – You can add salt and pepper to taste after you’ve combined all of your ingredients.

Tips and Notes for making Keto Cheese Crackers: 

  • Add seeds – If you’re looking to add a little extra flavor to your cheese chips, feel free to sprinkle on some seeds before baking. Two-three teaspoons of sesame seeds, poppy seeds, pumpkin seeds, or sunflower seeds will taste great. Sprinkle over the cheese slices and bake as directed.
  • Add spices – If you want to flavor these chips in a different way, spices are an easy way to do that. You can sprinkle 1 to 2 teaspoons oregano, herbs de Provence, or Italian seasoning over the cheese slices and bake as directed. If you want a Mexican-style chip, feel free to sprinkle paprika or chili powder and bake as directed. 
  • Leave space between cheese – You must leave some space in between the cheese slices so when they bake, they won’t stick to each other. These cheese chips will expand and melt onto the pan.
