Are Tortilla Chips Keto friendly?
Normally tortilla chips are not keto friendly because they are high in carbs and made from flour or corn. However, when we prepare them with low carb ingredients we can make a healthier version that works with the keto lifestyle. Like anything, we do need to be reasonable with the portions we choose.
Here we use almond flour for our tortilla chips to make them keto friendly because it has a lower carb count than corn or flour. This recipe is also grain-free and gluten-free.
How Many Tortilla Chips Can You Have on Keto?
These keto tortilla chips have a low carb content with only 3g net carbs per serving. By comparison, regular tortilla chips pack a whopping 15-20g a serving. However, I recommend that you only eat a couple of servings at a time to stay under your daily carb count.
How to Store Keto Tortilla Chips
If you aren’t eating the tortilla chips right away store them in an airtight container. They should remain fresh and crisp for a few days, but if you want to keep them even longer you can store them in a freezer. They should last a week or longer.
If they lose their crispness reheat the chips in an oven at 200 degrees for 15-20 minutes at 200 degrees.
Can You Buy Keto Tortilla Chips?
There are a number of products on the market that claim to be keto-friendly tortilla chips. However, they are too high in net carbs to be keto-friendly. They count each small one-ounce bag as 8 servings!
For example, one brand claims to have only 3 net carbs but this is per serving with 8 servings in a small one-ounce bag. This means this small bag has 24 net carbs!
