low carb & keto tortilla chips

Low Carb & Keto Tortilla Chips

  • Servings: 8 tortillas
  • Difficulty: Easy
  • Print

Expect deliciously crisp results in every bite.


Ingredients

    For the tortilla dough:
  • 1 cup almond flour
  • 3 tablespoons coconut flour
  • 2 teaspoons xanthan gum
  • 1 teaspoon baking powder
  • 1/8 – 1/4 teaspoon kosher salt depending on whether sweet or savory
  • 2 teaspoons apple cider vinegar
  • 1 egg lightly beaten
  • 3 teaspoons water
  • For cooking

  • lard or frying oil of choice
  • avocado oil for bushing (if baked)
  • For the ‘Dorito’ dust (optional)

  • 1 tablespoon nutritional yeast
  • 1 tablespoon paprika
  • 1/2 teaspoon oregano
  • 1/2 teaspoon garlic powder
  • 1/4 teaspoon onion powder
  • 1/4-1/2 teaspoon chipotle powder to taste
  • 1/4-1/2 teaspoon kosher salt to taste
  • 1/4 teaspoon black pepper freshly ground
  • 1/8 teaspoon ground cumin

Directions

    For the tortilla dough
  1. Add almond flour, coconut flour, xanthan gum, baking powder and salt to food processor. Pulse until thoroughly combined.
  2. Pour in apple cider vinegar with the food processor running. Once it has distributed evenly, pour in the egg. Followed by the water. Stop the food processor once the dough forms into a ball. The dough will be sticky to touch.
  3. Wrap doug in cling film and knead it through the plastic for a minute or two. Think of it a bit like a stress ball. Allow dough to rest for 10 minutes (and up to 2 days in the fridge.)
  4. Break the dough into eight 1″ to 1-1/2″ balls. Roll out between two sheets of parchment or waxed paper using a tortilla press (suggested) or with a rolling pin. For your reference, each tortilla should weigh 26g uncooked.
  5. UPDATE: Based on a reader’s feedback, we now know that your chips won’t puff up unless the tortillas are THIN enough! So you absolutely must get 8 5″ tortillas out of one batch. If using a tortilla press, keep pressing down and rotating the tortilla around to get even thickness. They are a bit harder than regular tortillas, so they might take anywhere from 3-6 tries (depending on how much muscle you’ve got!)
  6. Cut tortillas into 8 triangles and set aside.
  7. Preheat oven to 350F.
  8. Place uncooked tortilla dough triangles in a parchment lined baking tray. Bake for 13-15 minutes, flipping half way through, until golden brown and hardened. The tortilla chips will continue to crisp up while cooling.
  9. If adding a topping, you’ll need to brush them with avocado oil, in order for it to stick.
  10. For the ‘Dorito’ dust (optional)

  11. Mix all ingredients in a ziplock bag, or run them through a high speed blender to fully mix and finely grind. Once your tortilla chips are done cooking, add them into the ziplock bag with the spices and mix until thoroughly coated. Allow them to cool completely, so they crisp up fully.
