The Best Keto Shrimp Nachos Recipe
Nachos have to one of the best sharing dishes on the planet. They gooey cheese spread over the crisp, salty chips are enough to get anyone’s mouth drooling. They’re also incredibly versatile. If you like them spicy you can top with salsa and jalapeños, or you can top with tasty guacamole for a heavenly creamy texture.
Unfortunately, however, these are off limits to those on a keto or Atkins diet. The chips are full of carbohydrates, which is essentially is the most important part of nachos. But what if we told you that you can have your cake and eat it too? Meaning you can still be on a diet and eat nachos. Don’t believe us? Well, keep on reading to discover the best keto shrimp nachos recipe in the world.
Instead of chips, we have found habanero chicharrones to be a wonderful substitute. If you’re unfamiliar with them, they are just pork rinds that have been fried for an extra delicious taste. They still bring the salty flavor that you would get from a chip, but because they are fried, they also bring the perfect amount of crunch to the dish. We have also used ghee, which is a type of butter from India. It contains a little spice, which gives it extra flavor but feel free to use regular butter of oil instead.
Our toppings include Ragu Double Cheddar sauce along with HEB White Queso with Sausage. If you’re vegetarian, however, you’re welcome to substitute the latter for Blanco. Finish with oh-so-delicious Dried Cilantro Chili Garlic Cholula and some black pepper. Just to note, if you’re after even more of a kick, add a little cayenne pepper as well.
So put your chef’s hat on, it’s time to get into the kitchen and start cooking!
