I love making low carb versions of my favorite high carb dishes. This version of the classic nachos dish is SO popular! You'll need to find some low carb tortillas that you like (note – low carb tortillas are rarely gluten free), and some low carb salsa. The Green Mountain Gringo from Netrition is very good! I can use salsa in SOOO many different ways – for example did you know that my Quick Cook Bacon Jam uses salsa?

To make the sauce, brown off some ground beef and add some cumin and paprika for extra flavor. Drain off any excess fat and add the the low carb salsa. Bring it to the boil, and then turn it down to a simmer so that the amazing flavors of the salsa absorb into the meat.

Spread the tortilla chips over the base of a large baking dish, and spoon the meat sauce over them. Add shredded cheese and some pickled jalapenos.

Bake it for five minutes, or until the cheese has melted, then add some chopped green onions and sour cream. Let the party begin!

The flavors in these low carb beef nachos are fantastic! As this was a low carb version I used a higher meat to chip ratio than is normal – but it made it even more filling. That's great news at a party where there may be other high carb options around to tempt you if you're hungry.

This might help! https://stepawayfromthecarbs.com/low-carb-tortilla-comparison-review/. My current favorite is the fajita size carb balance ones from Mission. If you are in the US then sites like Netrition are a great source of low carb products!

Can't wait to try this.. I use fried pork rinds instead of chips. They are 0 carb and if you well drain the toppings you wont loose the crunch...
