These super easy low carb tortilla chips are more of a Keto Snack trick than a recipe.
Simple to make and only take a few minutes of your time. Only one ingredient unless you want to get fancy and add salt and oil.
I wanted to include it on our blog because we think that the Keto Diet should be easy. We know that you are bombarded with complicated recipes every time you search for Keto ideas on Pinterest.
We feel like there should be some simplicity when you are starting out on the Keto Journey and trying to learn how to calculate your macros and figuring out what works best for you, your body and your work/life/diet balance.
If you miss chips & salsa or chips & guacamole/dip than this recipe is for you!
Keto Tortilla Chips are crunchy and hold up to salsa….
One of the biggest complaints that we hear on at least a weekly basis is that Keto Newcomers miss the crunchiness in a lot of Keto Recipes.
We know. We felt the same way.
The old cravings for crispy chips & crackers subsides eventually and becomes something that you only think about once in a while. But in the beginning, those cravings need to be satisfied so that you’ll be more likely to stick with your macros.
It’s part of our mission to help people stick with Keto and provide some truly uncomplicated ideas to curb cravings that would otherwise derail your progress.
The Secret ingredient in Your Keto Tortilla Chips is the Tortilla….
When we first started Keto there weren’t very many low carb tortillas on the market except for these whole grain tortillas made by Santa Fe. And these actually weren’t (still aren’t) available at our little grocery store in the sticks.
We always have gotten these when we went to Costco but since that’s an hour and a half away, we made our own we we ran out. We have a Keto tortilla recipe here if you want to try it.
But honestly, I think in this case…store bought is better. I probably shouldn’t say that. But I feel like you need to hear it.
A lot of Keto Bloggers pretend that they have all of the time in the world to make everything from scratch and that you should try to squeeze it in too.
Nope. Some things that are WORTH the time and effort to make, but homemade Keto Tortillas aren’t one of them.
Many of the store-bought options are just as good (maybe better) than spending time on making and trying to perfect your own.
I’ve used a lot of brands of low carb tortillas. We use them for quick wraps, tacos (my favorite food in the world) burritos and chips when we can squeeze them into our macros.
And, these low carb tortillas are available here if you don’t want to or can’t make it to a local Costco.
Don’t worry about buying extra…they freeze well. We do it all of the time.
Feel free to use your favorite brand. These are just our favorite and the ingredient list is pretty good. Plus they contain a ton of fiber to keep your belly happy.
They’re not quite as inexpensive as others, but they’re worth it. And, I like the size and texture.
Now, don’t get me wrong. Homemade carb filled tortillas are TOTALLY worth the extra time to make your own! The taste is worth the extra time.
And, even the Homemade Keto versions taste great. But they are problematic because of the lack of gluten…they crack (blow out). For special occasions, yes I would make them.
For everyday lunch wraps quick burrito dinners and chips? No. (They take 40 minutes to make).
The net carbs for one of these tortillas is 6 grams and is a decent sized serving for one person no matter what you are making with them.
I brushed oil and the homemade everything bagel spice recipe you’ll find in this post over these Keto tortilla chips…
Most of it fell off and I sat there dipping my finger and licking it off because I couldn’t bear to waste it. Now I only add salt if anything at all. I usually let the dip do the work in terms of providing flavor.
These tortilla chips will stand up to salsa and not get soggy as soon as you dip them. See?
These are great little Keto friendly snacks that you can make fast to tame the crunch cravings but we also have a ton of other snacks to check out here.

Mission just came out with a pea protein tortilla … 3 net carbs, 70 calories! At that I don’t feel guilty eating two. Cut them into six chips before baking. I’m going to be making cauliflower hummus to eat with them.
