These keto 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 keto 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!

This is a perfect idea to use up any leftover taco meat you may already have prepared, and these can be thrown together in just a few minutes for a delicious appetizer or quick meal.

I had to try out this brilliant idea after my Hip2Save sidekick Jamie told me about it!  We’re big fans of nachos and thought these were great! The crispy “chips” are a game changer if you’re skipping carbs. So simple and easy to make, too!

    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!

  2. Carey

    Sorry, still getting used to the new site…….The KETO is the best thing around for your health… I haven’t been on to long but my BP is lower than it was when I was 30…. I’m 47. Good luck to everyone and thanks again
    for your site.

    • Lina D

      Thanks for sharing your success! And thanks for reading ?

  3. Teresa Walles

    Wonder if this would work with pepper jack cheese

  4. Stephanie

    If meal prepping, how would you suggest the cheese chips be stored and how long will they be good for?

    • Lina D

      They can be stored in a plastic baggie for a couple days and still be crispy for sure. Thanks!

      • Lori

        A baggie in the fridge or countertop?

        • Amber (Hip2Keto Sidekick)

          They should be fine on the counter for a day or two! Hope that helps!

  5. Julia

    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!

    • Collin (Mrs. Hip)

      SUPER happy you are enjoying all of the yummy recipe ideas Julia! Thanks a ton for your sweet comment! It sure means a lot!

    • Lina D

      I’m so happy you like them! Thanks for sharing ??

  6. Joan Gourlay

    Wondering what the carb count is for just the chips alone? These look like such an awesome idea!

    • Amber (Hip2Keto Sidekick)

      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!

  7. R Rogers

    I just started the Keto and I was really sad that I cant have chips until now.

    • Lina D

      YES!!! ENJOY 🙂

  8. myrla

    Thanks for the recipes…doing these for my blood sugar and diabetes 2….just started and
    was already worried how to plan meals to stay on it. I actually feel better in one day!

  9. Lori

    My chips didn’t come out crispy – what did I do wrong? I used Velveeta jalapeno 40 calorie sliced cheese – would that have made the difference?

    • Chichi

      The consistency of velveeta is too soft to create a crisp chip. You also want to be sure you use parchment paper.

      I hope this helps.

  10. Linda

    Hello – I don’t own a microwave. Can you bake them in the oven? Thanks!

    • Lina D

      Yes you can definitely try that! Maybe on parchment paper ?
