I have put away some nachos in my day, but these Keto Nachos are the the new nacho king. Every bite is crunchy and cheesy with a little bit of spice, just like a good plate of nachos should taste. And because of the general shape of pork rinds, they are a superior queso carrier than the more traditional corn tortilla chip.
Personally, corn was always been a problem in my diet. Pre-Keto a lot of my snacks and meals relied on highly processed corn products. Even after being keto for a while, a warm basket of tortilla chips at our favorite Mexican restaurant was my kryptonite.
But I know better now, corn is one of the biggest players in causing widespread inflammation in my body. If you aren’t feeling 100% try keeping a food journal and identify the foods that cause issues and make substitutions when necessary. Eliminating foods that affect your body in a negative way is one of the quickest and easiest ways the feel your absolute best, but sometimes finding which foods those are can be tricky.
Like the classic ice breaker “if I could choose my last meal”, mine would definitely be nachos covered in creamy queso, carnitas, and a variety of delicious salsas. And you know if this is my last meal, it’s probably going to be made using corn tortilla chips (why bother at this point) but, If it’s anything other than my last meal, I’m going to stick with pork rinds.
