Backstory of The Keto Nachos Recipe
While on a week long vacation I decided that it wasn’t healthy to eat meatballs every night. So I deiced to try something new at the next restaurant we went to. We got to restaurant and I asked the waitress what the healthiest appetizer was. She told me the nachos were the healthiest but they taste great too. I had no idea nachos could taste great and be healthy too, so I decided to order them. From that point on, healthy nachos were one of my favorite snack options. Shortly after I made the decision to try the Keto Diet and made it my mission to find the best Keto Nachos Recipe. After some experimenting, I finally perfected it.
This keto recipe is very easy to make and only requires a few ingredients. All you need is taco seasoning some vegetables, ground beef, cheese, tomatoes, cilantro, onions, bell pepper, and your favorite Mexican sauce. I love to use Guacamole as my main sauce because it’s healthy and tastes great.
For my version of the famous nachos I like to use cheddar cheese and onion powder to give it that sharp, cheesy texture. If you aren’t much for adding your own spices, then use your favorite spices from your local grocery store. I prefer garlic powder, chili powder, oregano, black pepper, salt and pepper. Most, if not all, Mexican restaurants will be able to tell you the correct amounts of these ingredients to use. I also find that the amount of liquid in your recipe should be slightly less than the amount listed in your condiments.
What Makes this Keto Nachos Recipe So Great?
After preparing your ingredients, you simply spread them evenly on the prepared sheet pan and pop into the oven at 350 degrees. Let them cook for about five to ten minutes depending on your recipe. During this time they will lightly brown on top. While your nachos are cooking, make sure to whip up a margarita or another favorite drink to enjoy with the nachos.
Once the cheese is done cooking, take the entire sheet pan and turn out the cooked items on one side. Take the remaining ingredients and pour them over the top of the baked items. Make sure you use enough oil to lightly cover all of the baked items. It is always best to go easy on the oil, so your keto nachos recipe doesn’t become soggy. You should wait an hour or so before cutting into the recipe.
One thing that makes this recipe so great is that it can easily be modified.Depending on your preferences, you can add as much seasoning and spices as pleases your taste buds. Whether you like a lot of spice or you like a lot of protein, you can easily customize this recipe to your needs. this tasty dish is great for a snack, appetizer or whatever your need is. The next time you are at the grocery store looking for some delicious snacks, make sure try this recipe.
Why You Should Make this Keto Nachos Recipe
For the most popular versions of the get nachos recipe I have found all you need are re-fried beans, cheese, onions, jalapenos, green onions, garlic, cheddar cheese, chili, seasoning, and pepper. If you want to make the recipe a little more spicy you can just add more hot peppers or green onions. When using cheddar cheese in the re-fried beans, you can leave out the cheese, if you are using other cheeses just add them after the cooking process. If you are not a huge fan of onions you could leave them out completely and substitute another topping for your dish.
The only downfall to this popular southern fried snack is that there are a limited amount of re-fried bean recipes that are still as good as the original. As most of us know too much of anything can ruin a good meal. So if you enjoy eating re-fried beans you will most likely want to make this a regular part of your diet. A keto recipe like this is easy to replicate and if you can’t find one at your local market or grocery store just use your favorite ingredients and voila you have a delicious snack that your family will absolutely love!
