Keto Nachos & Keto Jerky–Why I Love Keto!

If you read my keto diet story then you know one of the main reasons I decided to try the keto diet is because you get to eat cheese! Yummy! Despite being a full grown man my favorite food is still nachos and you get to eat those while still on keto! I’ve tried many recipes while on the keto diet and their all good but this is, by far, my favorite keto nacho recipe! You can get this and 370 great tasting keto recipes–here!

Keto Nachos Prep Time 30 Mins

Ingredients:

2 cups shredded sharp cheddar cheese

1/2 cup grated Parmesan cheese

1 teaspoon cumin 1/2 teaspoon garlic powder

1/4 teaspoon chili powder

1 cup cooked taco seasoned ground beef

1/4 cup shredded sharp cheddar cheese

2 tablespoons chopped onions

1/4 cup diced tomatoes

1/4 cup jalapenos

1/4 cup sliced black olives

2 tablespoons guacamole

2 tablespoons sour cream

Instructions:

Preheat the oven to 400°F. Line a rimmed baking sheet with parchment paper or a silicone baking mat. Sprinkle the cheddar cheese on the parchment paper in a thin layer, in the shape of a rectangle.

Sprinkle the Parmesan cheese evenly over top of the cheddar cheese. In a small mixing bowl, combine the cumin, garlic powder, and chili powder. Sprinkle the seasoning mix evenly over the top of the cheeses.

Bake on the middle rack for 8 to 10 minutes, checking every minute to ensure that it does not burn. Remove the baking sheet from the oven and let the cheese cool for 10 minutes.

Peel the cooked cheese away from the parchment paper and cut lengthwise into strips. To make this easier, I recommend using a pizza cutter or kitchen shears. After cutting the cheese into strips, then cut each strip into triangles.

Transfer the individual chips back to the parchment paper and broil on high for 1 to 2 minutes. Let the chips cool and crisp up – about 30 minutes. Pile the chips on a plate and cover with all of your favorite nacho toppings.

Keto Jerky

Sadly beef jerky isn’t keto like many people think. Many brands are chalk full of sugar and other preservatives to extend their shelf lives. If you want to get the best results you should make your own keto jerky. You can also have real keto jerky and other snacks delivered to your door.  Here is a free recipe for keto jerky!

Keto Jerky Prep Time 8 Hours (for slow baking)
Low Carb Beef Jerky Course: Snack Keyword: low carb beef jerky Prep Time: 15 minutes Cook Time: 4 hours Total Time: 8 hours 15 minutes

Ingredients:

1 can Cola Zevia

3 lbs top round beef

1/2 cup liquid aminos

1/4 cup rice wine vinegar

3 tbsp liquid smoke

1 tsp garlic powder

1 tsp Onion powder

1 tsp Red Pepper Flakes

3/4 tsp Paprika

1/2 tsp ground ginger

1/2 tsp black pepper

5 bamboo skewers

Instructions:

Pour a can of zevia into a gallon size ziplock bag and add the soy sauce, rice wine vinegar, liquid smoke and add the seasonings. Trim the top round of any excess fat and cut into strips to your desired size. I like them on the smaller side for easy grab and go!

Add the cut up strips into the marinade and shake around. Seal the bag (removing any excess air) and place the bag into a bowl so there is no leakage.

Place the bowl into the fridge for at least 4 hours and up to 24 hours. Once the meat has marinated remove the bowl from the fridge and pat the strips dry with paper towels (the marinade will have already penetrated the meat enough!).

Using the bamboo skewers pierce the tip of the meat so you have anywhere from 5-7 pieces of meat hanging from each skewer. Set your oven to its lowest setting (we did 170 degrees) and hang the skewers through the grates in the oven so the strips are hanging.

Bake for 4 hours (for thicker strips you may need to bake longer), remove from oven and serve immediately or store in the fridge up to 1 month.

NOTE: For every 3lbs of raw meat you’ll get 1lb of cooked delicious jerky!
