The Keto craze has been sweeping the diet world recently with its low-carb and high-fat requirements. Unlike other diets, you don’t have to give up all the foods you love. You just have to readjust them to fit into the diet, like these Keto-friendly nachos that will surely have you asking yourself why you never ate them sooner.

With the Keto diet, you have to be very aware of what you’re putting into your food. Using ground sirloin, season the meat with salt, pepper, garlic powder, chili powder, and cumin. Since your favorite tortilla chips are no longer an option for you, substitute it with pork skins.

You’ll still get that crispy crunch that comes with eating nachos, but with a healthier benefit. This way you can even indulge in a more nachos than you would have with the tortilla chips.

Once your meat is covering your pork skins you are going to want to add cheese. Much pre-packaged shredded cheese includes additives, like potato starch, which are not keto-friendly. Instead, buy 100% real cheese and shred it yourself. That way you’ll know that what you are eating is low-carb.

Now you can’t have nachos without salsa. Chop up some red onion, tomatoes, and jalapenos and put them into a bowl.

Season the mixture with salt before adding lime juice and giving it a quick stir. Once that’s mixed, spoon some sour cream into a bowl, as well, and add a tablespoon of chipotle to give your nachos a healthy sauce.

Once all of your food prep is done spread the tomato mixture and the sour cream mixture onto your nachos and enjoy the Keto-friendly dish.
