The Perfect Tortilla Chips…

I have tried making tortilla chips several times, and they kept getting close to perfection, but somehow fell slightly short…until now! Ladies and gentlemen, let me happily introduce you guys to the ultimate tortilla chip! This is the only tortilla chip recipe you will need! They are so moreish and are great in my Keto Chicken Tortilla Soup and Loaded Chicken Fajita Nachos.

These low carb, keto flaxseed tortilla chips are SO quick and easy to make! They only take 5 minutes preparation time and 12-15 minutes baking time.

Flaxseed Facts…

Flaxseed is a great addition in keto baking! It is high in fiber, omega-3 fats and has so many health benefits including:

  • Supports Digestive Health
  • Improves Cholesterol
  • Increases Estrogen Levels
  • Decreases Blood Pressure
  • Improves Brain Health
  • Lowers Cancer Risk

You can buy flaxseed meal already ground up, or you can simply make it by grinding up flaxseeds in a food processor for a couple of minutes. Easy!

How To Make These Delicious Chips…

  • Mix the almond flour, flaxseed meal, chili powder, cumin, garlic powder, salt and baking powder together.
  • Melt the mozzarella cheese in a microwave.
  • Stir the melted cheese and dry ingredients together, and mix until very well combined. I find using my hands is the best way to bind the dough.
  • Once the dough is well combined, roll it out on a silicone baking mat or piece of parchment paper.
  • Side Note: The thinner the dough, the crispier the tortilla chips!
  • Cut into dough into triangles. Separate them slightly and bake for 12-15 minutes, turning halfway though.
  • Take them out the oven and sprinkle them with some salt.
  • Leave them to cool completely…then TUCK IN!

    • Hey Paul.

      Sorry to hear your tortilla chips turned out soft! How thin did you roll the dough? The thinner the dough, the crispier the chip! It may look like it’s too thin, but as long as it still holds together, you will get a crispy chip! Also, make sure they are left to cool down completely before tucking in. Let me know if they work out for you this way, but if not, message me and I will be happy to further assist you!
      Happy Baking!

    Amazing! Followed recipe exactly, rolling pin to get super thin, and cooked for 12 mins. Thinking I might use this as a base for thin crispy pizza crust too!
