I'm going to start with a little bit of honesty. If you're a “make-broccoli-flax-tortillas-chips-from-scratch” kind of person – then I am in awe. I love broccoli! I love flax! But personally, I don't have the time to make tortillas. Or energy. Once I discovered that I could make super quick homemade tortilla chips from low carb wraps – that was it for me – I looked no further! Low carb tortillas may not be all natural, but they ARE convenient. I've tried many of them over the years, and I think it takes a while to find the right balance of taste, price, and availability.
Once you've found the low carb tortillas for you – the rest of this dish just falls into place. This recipe is super easy to customize, both in terms of ingredients and quantities. What I've shown here is enough for four people as an appetizer, or two people for an informal lunch. You could go bigger for a party – and I bet no-one will think that they're eating “diet” food!

A few days ago I posted my recipe for Mexican Shredded Chicken. It's made in the slow cooker and is full of flavor as well as super moist and delicious. I used half the quantity shown in that recipe for these low carb nachos – and the leftovers I enjoyed over the next few days.
How to Make Low Carb Nachos with Chicken
So here's how it goes! Make the tortilla chips according to my popular recipe. They only take a few minutes! I used four small low carb tortillas that have a carb count of 3g net carbs (Mission Carb Balance Fajita). Place them on a serving platter then load it up with the shredded chicken and shredded cheese (I use chihuahua as I love how it melts – but any Mexican blend cheese would be great).
Place the platter under a preheated broiler and cook until the cheese has melted. Add the rest of the toppings: guacamole (my creamy guac would be great!), sour cream, fresh jalapeño slices, and fresh cilantro leaves.
