Nachos have always been a favorite of mine, so I was definitely heartbroken when I had to give up tortilla chips. Luckily, though, there are alternatives!
Growing up as a latina, my parents always had pork rinds in the house. It was a favorite snack for both of them and they became a favorite of mine as well.
When I realized that they don’t have any carbs but have a ton of fat, I was ecstatic! They are a keto girls dream!

They are crunchy and savory, so they make a great replacement for chips. And if you load them with cheese and ground beef you have your own walking taco (is that a Chicago thing or an everywhere thing?!)
Here’s the thing, though… if you put them in the oven, it ruins the crunch and gives them a really weird consistency. So, I don’t recommend broiling them with cheese. Especially if you plan to reheat them at all!
