Keto Nachos

Nachos are another food that are so delicious but unfortunately are made with less than ideal ingredients. Even if the toppings are cleaned up, tortilla chips are typically made with nasty vegetable oils. Also, corn is not paleo and many people choose or need to avoid it.

That’s where these nachos step in! They are Keto and Primal, and quite delicious! If you’re not eating dairy, simply omit the cheese, and sprinkle some nutritional yeast flakes on top!

I also love that this meal gets dinner on the table in less than 30 minutes! If you want to spend just a bit of extra time and make the meat extra flavorful, use my taco meat recipe!
