It’s Mexican night and you know the salsa and guacamole are going to be amazing, but what if you’re following a keto diet? You need low carb chips! But can keto tortilla chips actually taste good and pair well with guacamole? Yes, they can!
If you’ve been following my keto recipes, you know I’m a firm believer that almost any food can be made keto — and this keto chips recipe is no exception. Serve it with the best guacamole, or pairing other ideas at the bottom of this post, the next time you’re craving Mexican food. They are extra crispy and seasoned with your typical tortilla chip flavors.
I use almond flour to create the best neutral chip base that pairs with any dip — Wholesome Yum Almond Flour, to be exact! This one has an ultra fine consistency, so chips bake up crispy, not gritty.
How Many Carbs In Tortilla Chips?
Since conventional tortilla chips contain white flour or corn, they are high in carbs. A 1-ounce serving of plain tortilla chips contains 19.1 grams total carbs and 17.8 grams net carbs [*].
Are Tortilla Chips Keto?
Conventional tortilla chips are not keto, because the amount of net carbs is too high for the average serving size. But there’s good news: It’s easy to make your own low carb chips with simple ingredients!

Tap on the times in the instructions below to start a kitchen timer while you cook.
Preheat the oven to 350 degrees F (177 degrees C). Line a baking sheet with parchment paper.
Add the egg and the corn extract (if using), and mix using a hand mixer, until a crumbly dough forms.
In a small bowl, microwave the mozzarella until it’s melted and easy to stir. (Alternatively, you can melt it using a double broiler on the stove.) Add to the dough mixture and knead/squeeze with your hands until well incorporated. If it stops incorporating before it’s fully mixed, you can reheat it for 15-20 seconds again before kneading more.
Place the dough between two large pieces of parchment paper. Use a rolling pin to roll out very thin, about 1/16 in (2 mm) thick.
Cut the dough into triangles and arrange in a single layer on the parchment lined baking sheet, with space between the pieces.
Bake for 8-12 minutes, until golden and firm. The chips may release some sizzling oil on the top – just pat dry with a paper towel. They will crisp up as they cool.
