I love to dip chips in stuff, but with keto obvoiously chips are out of the question. I guess I will throw an example out there - I like to make my tuna with mayo and use whole wheat Ritz crackers to put it on and eat or I love salsa and chips. is there anything out there that has little to no carbs that could be substituted in? i used to make a banging salsa chicken and dipped tostitos into it. Damn I miss that. Any ideas?

Yeah, unfortunately pork rinds are as close as I've found and I don't like them. :(

maybe cook some bacon until it's extra crispy and cut it into chip size portions. but i just do pork rinds and dip...most dips you find in stores are around 2g carbs per 2 tablespoons.

Bacon chips nice... I have actually never tried a pork rind, so I will have to look into this option. I was also thinking of possibly experimenting with a salad or spinach leaf and trying to coat it in butter and/or egg and bake it? I kind of just made that up in my head though and odn't know if it would work.

You can make a sort of a chip out of cheese as well. I do this sometimes, and they can get crispy and flat and end up tasting a lot like Cheez-Its.

Basically cover the bottom of an omelet pan with shredded cheese (my favorite is yellow cheddar). Turn it on medium heat or so... and let it sit there. It will bubble up and turn into one, solid mass. After a few minutes, flip it over and cook a few minutes on the other side. Take it out, lay it on a paper towel and in a few minutes, after it dries, you can break it into pieces like chips.

Delicious. Look online for cheese crisps recipes... you can find much more accurate recipes than this one, but I mostly just wing it and they turn out great.

Ok, this is something I made which came out a bit like wheat thins or something.

3-4 tsp bran
3 tsp flaxmeal (ground flaxseed)
1/2 tsp xanthan gum
pinch salt or spice.
enough water to moisten.

Mix well, then squeeze into a ball. Flatten onto a silicon baking sheet, then use the back of a spoon to smooth it out as thin and flat as possible. Bake for about 10 minutes at 200C, then turn over and do for another ten minutes. By then, it should be nice and crispy. If not, do another five minutes.

Buy some real American cheese (NOT cheese food like Kraft Singles), cut one slice into 16 pieces, place squares on wax paper and microwave it until brown and crispy. You can sprinkle some salt (or garlic salt, whatever) on the squares before you put them in to cook, too.

Hate to burst your bubble man, but any cheese that's called "American" is processed cheese. If you want real cheese, you need to be buying natural cheese, like cheddar. Be careful, most of the chedder you buy is processed as well.

American's best cheese comes out of a can.

If my bubble was over American cheese, I'd lead a very sad life. Plus I never said it couldn't be processed, I said it can't be a cheese food or cheese product, like Kraft Singles are.

You can also put shredded cheese into little piles on an oven tray, and cook it until it is chip-like. Very keto-friendly.

My snack food when on keto is peperonni. I buy bags and bags of them and snack on those like chips. One thing i do with them is scatter them on a plate and put shredded cheese over them and stick them in the microwave for a few seconds. I call it pepperoni nachos
