Low-Carb Tortilla Chips / Nachos

Hello, Taco Tuesday 🌮

Healthy choices does not equal no fun, at least in my world.  One thing I know about myself:  if I can’t make something fun, then I’m just not doing it or sticking with it.  So … #tacotuesday remains!

Nachos were always a favorite of mine – I mean, come on, who doesn’t love a good chip?  It just seemed like it made sense for us to make this “snack” into a low-carb version after coming up with our own Homemade Taco Seasoning.

Now, before we get started … a little disclaimer … these can and will be dangerous.  Watch your portions!

Let’s get to the recipe:
