Let’s taco ’bout these taco seasoning cheese crisps! Great sub for crackers or chips – 3 ingredients and 6 minutes in the oven, and you’re snackin’. For keto / low carb lifestyles, these are a sanity-saver.
When you’re committed to low carb, you’re always looking for snacking options. And when I started, I was buying the premade foods and spending too much money. So I got smart and checked Pinterest and BOOM. So many recipes.
So these are basically cooked cheese. It’s that simple – and if you are a cheese fan like me, it’s pretty amazing. I started with cheddar and parmesan – those two cheeses are good for baking.
You use your basic taco seasoning. We buy it in bulk (because tacos!), but you can make your own if you prefer.
You don’t need much chese – in fact, less than a tablespoon for each one. I started not sprinkling much taco seasoning on each one, but found they needed more. Test a few first to find your taco-appreciation-level.
They crisp up nicely and pop out easily. They may be a little greasy at first, so you can pat them on a paper towel. We store ours in a glass pyrex so they’re ready for frequent snacking
They burn easily, so watch the oven. I’d test your oven and begin watching them at around 5 minutes. I find 6 minutes is the perfect time for my oven.
