It’s easy to make your own keto low carb tortilla chips at home. Simply use homemade or store-bought tortillas and bake them in pieces until crispy.
After making my own homemade low carb gluten-free almond flour tortillas, I knew they would taste great as chips. So, it was just a matter of time before I gave that a try.
I had a little time over the weekend to test out the recipe. My four-year-old daughter helped me roll out the dough to make the flat tortilla rounds.
We used rolling pins, but I’m going to use a tortilla maker next time. I just put in an order for a cast iron one. Hopefully, that will make it even easier to make these low carb tortilla chips.
Although you may be able to bake the raw dough, I fried it first. Then, I let the cooked tortillas sit in the refrigerator overnight. For some reason, they are always more flexible the next day after chilling for several hours.
Most recipes for keto tortilla chips use either eggs or mozzarella cheese. However, I wanted chips that are both egg-free and dairy-free. That’s why this recipe doesn’t use eggs or cheese.
I’ve seen others use a Fat Head style dough for low carb tortilla chips. I may give that a try later using either almond or coconut flour along with mozzarella cheese. Although I have a sensitivity to egg whites, I’m not sensitive to dairy products.
The other great thing about this recipe for low carb tortilla chips is that you can use store-bought tortillas like these instead of making your own. However, the net carb count will be lower if you make your own.
I like to use psyllium husks in the tortillas because it’s a fantastic ingredient to use in gluten-free bread. And, psyllium has zero net carbs because all the carbs are fiber carbs. There are also a number of benefits you get from consuming psyllium.
I’ve started using psyllium a lot more after I discovered my egg white sensitivity. To replace each egg in a recipe, I use 1 Tablespoon whole psyllium husks to 3 Tablespoons water.
I used to eat tons of eggs before I got tested for food sensitivities. The main symptom that I have after eating egg whites is that I get tired. So, if you get tired after eating eggs, you may want to get tested.
