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 store-bought low carb tortillas – 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.

A few days ago I posted my recipe for Mexican Shredded Chicken. It's made in the slow cooker (or Instant Pot!) and is full of flavor as well as being super moist and delicious. It's absolutely ideal for this recipe.

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 low carb tortillas that have a carb count of 4g net carbs (Mission Carb Balance Fajita)

Transfer the chips to an oven-safe 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). Also make sure that the chicken is thoroughly drained otherwise it will make the chips soggy.

Place the platter under a preheated broiler and cook until the cheese has melted. Add the rest of the toppings and serve immediately. Here are some suggestions:

Low Carb Nacho Toppings

  • guacamole (my creamy guac would be great!)
  • black olives
  • sour cream
  • low carb salsa (I love the Green Mountain Gringo brand)
  • fresh or pickled jalapeño slices
  • shredded lettuce
  • fresh cilantro leaves
  • cotija cheese
