I don’t recall the first time I tried keto cheese chips, but I’ve been making them for years, and just can’t get enough ever since. It’s hard to believe that you can make chips with just one ingredient! Making them with cheddar cheese is my absolute favorite, but any hard cheese will do. My latest idea for using cheese chips has been topping them with guacamole. And since my absolute favorite guac comes from Chipotle, that was the one I wanted to recreate.
Have I mentioned that I think Chipotle rocks? If I had to pick a quick place to eat out, Chipotle would totally win, hands down. I love that they use only natural ingredients, and I can easily make my order low carb and gluten-free without compromising on taste or asking for complicated substitutions.
My favorite thing at Chipotle is a big salad with beef barbacoa, which I love so much that I’ve already made a Chipotle copycat beef barbacoa version in lettuce wraps. Stay tuned for that recipe in a few months! (Update: You can find my copycat Chipotle barbacoa recipe here.)
I have to say, though, the best part about Chipotle is their ah-mazing guacamole. When I found out that they posted the recipe publicly on their website, I knew I had to give it a try.
Crispy cheddar cheese chips + Chipotle’s amazing guacamole = one of my favorite appetizers ever.
These pretty little cheese chips are low carb and gluten-free, of course. And, they incorporate such rich flavors that you won’t miss the carbs one bit.
The sharp cheddar flavors pair perfectly with the creamy avocado, while the jalapenos in the guacamole provide the perfect subtle (or not so subtle) kick. Feel free to add more or less jalapenos depending on your spiciness threshold. The lime juice delays oxidation, so the guacamole will stay bright green for almost a whole day.
I made these low carb cheese chips as appetizers for my daughter’s birthday party, and they were the first thing to disappear! Everyone loved them, including all the people that don’t even care about low carb eating (which was almost everyone). I topped each chip individually so that they were easy for people to grab, but you could make it even simpler by just scooping the guacamole with the chips directly. Either way, once you try these cheese chips, I think they’ll become one of your favorites, too.
