Keto tortillas chips – grain free tortillas
Store bought keto chips are expensive and can be difficult to find in the supermarket. That is why you should make your own keto tortillas chips at home! I already shared with you my 4 ingredients almond flour tortillas chips recipe. Today, I am sharing a different keto nachos recipe version, made of a combo of healthy keto flours for an even more nourishing tortillas chips recipe.
Almond flour – thin almond flour is always the best. Almond meal will work but the color of the chips will be darker.
Coconut flour – make sure you are using fresh coconut flour with no lumps for precision
Psyllium husk – ground or powder
Water – make sure you use lukewarm tap water
Olive oil or any seed or nut oil you like – almond oil, avocado oil etc
Golden ‘corn like’ tortillas chips color – tips and tricks
There is few tricks to make those grain free chips golden as corn chips. First, make sure you are using golden flaxmeal to enhance the golden color of your chips. Then, watch the baking time closely. If you overbake the chips they will get brown. Finally, try different source of husk, some brand turns food blue/purple.
How to serve with this keto nachos recipe ?
There is plenty of delicious dip to serve with those grain free tortillas chips. The best low carb dipping sauce are:
In a large mixing bowl add all the dry ingredients, whisk to evenly combine the flours and flavors. If you like cheesy tortillas go for 2 tablespoons grated parmesan (or nutritional yeast, if vegan).
Add olive oil and lukewarm water (about 40C, thick hot bath temperature). The warm will activate the flaxmeal fibers fast and get a consistent dough quickly.
Combine with your hands and knead the dough for about 1 minute or until it form a dough ball. If too dry, it may happen if you use nutritional yeast, add an extra tablespoon of water to gather the dough together. Don't add more than 2 extra tablespoons water.
Place the dough ball between two pieces of parchment paper. Note that you may have to slightly oil the parchement paper if yours tend to stick to food!
Press the dough to stick the top piece of parchment paper to the dough ball. Roll with a roller pin until very thin. The thinner the crispier the tortillas chips will be. Your dough should be thin as regular nachos chips to crisp. If too thick, they will be good but they will be closer to a cracker consistency and you will have to bake them longer to crisp - see next step.
Peel off the top parchement paper sheet. Cut the dough into a large rectangle shape. Remove the outside dough from the rectangle and gather this extra dough into a ball to roll later and shape more tortillas. Cut triangle shapes inside the rectangle of dough - I highly recommend you watch my recipe video below for tips on how to cut lovely triangle tortillas.
Slide the piece of parchement paper (with the tortillas you cut) onto a baking tray.
Bake for 6 minutes, check the color and stop baking as soon as you reach a golden brown color. For very thin chips it took 6-9 minutes. For thicker chips it could take up to 10-12 minutes. I recommend you bake for 6 minutes then check every 1 minute to avoid the chips to burn. The ones on the sides always crisp faster and that is normal. You can remove those first and keep baking the other chips. Note that the longer they bake the darker the color will be too.
Remove the tray from the oven and cool down for 10 minutes on the tray. Then, gently separate the tortillas from each other. If they are too soft to your liking, don't worry you can easily fix that. Simply spread them on the tray to make sure they don't overlap and return the tray in oven for 3-5 minutes or until all the tortillas chips are very crispy.
Sprinkle extra salt or paprika on top of the chips before serving.
Repeat the rolling, cutting, baking steps with leftover dough. You should be able to make about 48 tortillas chips with this recipe.
Store up to 2 weeks in the pantry, in a glass mason jar or airtight container. They will soften with time like store-bought chips. Simply pop them in hot oven 150C for few minutes to give their crisp back!
