  • 1/3 cup flax seed meal (50 g / 1.8 oz)
  • 1 1/2 tablespoons coconut flour (50 g / 1.8 oz)
  • 1 tablespoon psyllium husks (50 g / 1.8 oz)
  • 1 tablespoon chia seeds (50 g / 1.8 oz)
  • 1/2 teaspoon salt (50 g / 1.8 oz)
  • 1/2 cup water (50 g / 1.8 oz)
  • 2 tablespoons ghee (50 g / 1.8 oz)
  • 1 can tomatoes (50 g / 1.8 oz)
  • 2 cloves garlic
  • 2 teaspoons dried oregano
  • 1 red chili peppers (50 g / 1.8 oz)
  • 2 jalapeno chilies (50 g / 1.8 oz)
  • 2 tablespoons ghee (50 g / 1.8 oz)
  • 3 1/2 ounces hard cheese (50 g / 1.8 oz)

Instructions

  • Prepare the dough by following my recipe for Keto & Paleo Tortillas - just use 1/2 the amounts as listed above.
  • Place a piece of the dough between two pieces of parchment paper and roll out until the dough is very thin.
  • Use a small 15 cm / 6 inch lid or bowl to cut out a tortilla.
  • Repeat for the remaining of the dough.
  • Preheat the oven to 200 °C/ 400 °F.
  • Use a pizza cutter or a sharp knife to cut the tortillas into 6 equal pieces / triangles.
  • Place each one of them on a baking sheet lined with parchment paper.
  • Melt the ghee (or coconut oil) and brush onto each of the tortilla chips.
  • Place in the oven and bake until lightly browned and crispy.
  • This could take 10-15 minutes.
  • If the tortilla chips don't bake evenly, remove gradually from the oven as they may get burnt.
  • Meanwhile, prepare the salsa.
  • Peel and finely dice the garlic and red chili pepper.
  • Place on a pan greased with 2 tablespoons of ghee and cook until lightly browned over a medium heat while stirring to prevent burning.
  • Add the tinned tomatoes, oregano and season with salt and pepper.
  • Add freshly sliced jalapeños or pickled jalapeños.
  • Mix until well combined, reduce the heat and simmer for about 10 minutes.
  • When done, take off the heat and set aside.
  • Meanwhile, grate the cheese and keep aside in a bowl.
  • Sprinkle each plate with a quarter of the grated cheese and place under a broiler until the cheese melts.
  • Serve immediately.
  • Enjoy!
