These microwave nachos use chips made from just cheese! Super simple.

Craving nachos?!

Check out these easy microwave nachos, using just cheese as CRISPY chips! They are delicious and take just one minute in the microwave! Use them as a base for piling on all your yummy nacho fixings such as ground beef, shredded cheese, avocado, chopped tomatoes, onion, and cilantro.

Use cheese slices to make these microwave nachos.

The secret for getting crispy “chips” is to use American cheese slices such as the Kraft Deli Deluxe brand I am using here. They spread out, sort of puff up a little in the microwave, and then become crispy. You can use a different thinly sliced cheese, but the results may not be as crunchy! 

These microwave nacho chips turn out crispy.

    Do you make the “cheese chips” prior? If so do you bake them? I live in Indianapolis and this is the HUGE RACE/PARTY weekend and I am on a roll and feeling so good on KETO….. I want to do my best to stick to things 🙂 Thanks

    • Lina D

      Yes – in the microwave according to directions above. You can make the chips in advance and bring them with you! Good luck and so great to hear your success!

    for your site.

    Made this yummy appetizer last night. Thank you for the great idea! I have been eating keto for 2 years and loving it. However, I noticed recently I’m getting bored of the same recipes. I absolutely LOVE this site.Thank you for all the great recipes/ideas!

      Hi there! The cheese chips alone are just slices of American cheese. You may want to check the packaging on your cheese slices for those macros, as it varies by brand. Hope that helps!
