  • Nacho Meat Sauce Gently fry the diced onion in oil until clear then add the meat, breaking it up into tiny pieces as it cooks and browns.
  • This should take up to 5 minutes.
  • Add the spices and tinned/canned tomato and tomato paste.
  • Stir then simmer on a low heat for 15 minutes (uncovered to thicken the meat sauce) whilst you make the Fat Head tortilla chips and toppings.
  • Fat Head Tortilla Chips Mix the shredded/grated cheese and almond flour/meal in a microwaveable bowl.
  • Add the cream cheese.
  • Microwave on HIGH for 1 minute.
  • Stir then microwave on HIGH for another 30 seconds.
  • Remove and stir again.
  • Add the egg, salt, and spices.
  • Mix.
  • Place the Fat Head pastry between 2 pieces of baking parchment/paper and roll into a thin, rectangle (see photos here).
  • Remove the top baking paper/parchment.
  • Slide the baking paper/parchment with the Fat Head pastry, on a baking tray (cookie tray) or pizza stone, and bake at 220C/425F for 12-15 minutes, or until browned on the top.
  • Flip the FatHead pastry over (onto baking paper/parchment) and brown the other side.
  • Once cooked, remove from the oven and cut into tortilla chip triangle shapes.
  • Bake again at 220C/425F for 3 - 5 minutes.
  • Spoon the hot meat sauce over the tortilla chips.
  • Add the grated/shredded cheese which will melt on the hot meat sauce all by itself, then top with everything you love.
  • Serve with a big side salad and plenty of olive oil (optional).
  • Notes Fat Head pastry can also be made by replacing the almond meal/flour with 1/4 cup (4 tbsp) coconut flour.
