Default Alternative Nachos

I was going berserk for some nachos this week. So, trying to stay away from corn products and flour products is pretty difficult when eating mexican style foods or tex-mex foods.

After doing some research online, I came across a chip company that makes alternative "tortilla" and "corn" chips out of cassava flour. Luckily, the grocery store I shop at has these in stock!!! (next time I will have to see if they carry the almond flour tortillas)

https://sietefoods.com/?gclid=EAIaIQ...iAAEgI1IvD_BwE


These chips are VERY hard to tell the difference from regular tortilla chips! Very light, very crunchy, and make AWESOME nachos!!!


Alternative Nachos

1 plate full of Siete grain free chips
Grated cheese or nacho cheese sauce
Pico de Gallo
Morning Star Grillers Crumbles (fake meat) cooked with some taco spice


I sprinkled a lot of cheese over the chips, then sprinkled about 1/2 cup of taco "meat" over that, stuck it in the microwave for one minute.

After taking it out of the microwave, I put some sour cream on it and several spoonfuls of Pico de Gallo.

It was AWESOME!

I can't wait to see if the store has some of the almond flour tortillas next time I go, so I can have some burritos again! I sure have been missing my mexican food since going Keto!!!!

I still eat Mexican food, no beans, no rice, no taco shell, no tortilla, and I still have lots to choose from.

Oh, why the "Fake Meat"?

I like my burritos, tacos, tostadas, and enchiladas, all of which have shells or tortillas. Plus I like my chips and dip as well.


The older I get, the less I like meat. Hence, the "fake meat". Actually, it's pretty good. I make chili out of it, and it's hard to tell the difference between it and ground meat.
