If you’re pressed for time before a party or gathering and looking for a quick and easy snack, this is the recipe for you. With only three ingredients and a few minutes to spare, you will be well on your way to making one of the most simple appetizers imaginable. These spicy keto cheese crisps are taken to the next level with the addition of bacon and jalapeno, and will soon become your new favorite ketogenic chip replacement.

Ingredients In This Recipe:

  • Cheddar cheese
  • Jalapenos
  • Bacon

We have all heard that it is impossible to eat just one potato chip. A single bite sets our taste buds into a tailspin and that one bite usually ends up turning into a handful of chips. Besides how delicious these crisps are (and how easy they are to make!), they’re also surprisingly filling. And if you’re following the ketogenic diet for weight loss, dishes that provide satiety are your best friend!
Just be sure you are buying the highest quality cheese you can find if you do incorporate dairy into your ketogenic meal plan. With quality dairy, you know you’re getting the health benefits (such as calcium, omega-3 fatty acids, and protein) without the fillers.
Eat these spicy keto cheese crisps on their own or with your favorite keto-friendly dip. These salty, crispy, bites of heaven might just end up being the guest of honor at your next party.
