I *love* Mexican food. I've even written a mini ebook about it! I've even made my own nachos before – my Beef Nachos are made from a base of baked low carb tortillas that form the chip element. So I wasn't really looking for an alternative until I started pulling together a collection of recipes that use pork rinds.

The Best Low Carb Uses for Pork Rinds

But it got me thinking about other ways to use those tasty zero carb treats. I'd made BBQ flavor pork rinds before (you *can* buy them already seasoned, but they're loaded with sugar) and I wondered about making a cheese version, and before you know it I thought about pork rind nachos!

I decided not to add meat in the traditional way, but settle for “just” cheese, salsa, sour cream, jalapeños, and avocado! For the pork rinds themselves, you could use a large ready-to-eat-bag, or cook your own in the microwave. I've tried it both ways, and I think the “freshness” of the microwave pork rinds is slightly better. But both are good! 

How to Make Pork Rind Nachos

To prepare the nachos, place the pork rinds onto an oven-safe serving plate. (If using the microwave pork rinds, cook them according to the pack instructions first!)

Sprinkle over some shredded cheese (chihuahua or a Mexican blend would work well). Place under a preheated broiler (overhead grill) for just a few minutes, watching carefully to ensure that the cheese or pork rinds do not burn.

Remove the plate from the oven, and add sliced jalapeños (pickled or fresh) and a diced avocado.

Finish with low carb salsa and sour cream, and serve immediately.
