Summertime and the livin easy!! Crab Guacamole is one of my absolute favorite quick and easy recipes to serve at family get togethers. You only need a few ingredients and about 5 minutes to blow your guest away with these fresh ingredients.
Looking for something that can stand up to the thickest guacamole without snapping in half. These Keto cheese Chips are the latest technology in low carb dipping and sure to be a favorite snack for anyone looking for a grain free crunch.
Microwave cheddar cheese in 30 second bursts stirring in between until Cheese is completely melted and smooth.
Immediately add coconut flour and mix until a dough forms. You should start with a plastic spatula but once it cools down a bit you can pick the dough up to finish forming it into a dough ball
Place the dough in between 2 sheets of parchment paper and roll out as thin and even as possible without tearing. As you see in the video it doesn’t always come out to an even shape but don’t worry you’ll be able to cut the chips into triangles.
Using a pizza cutter cut strips across and set aside the strips accept the one you are cutting into triangles. You can use that same pizza cutter or I actually got better results using a bench scraper
Once you’ve cut all you chips line them on a sheet pan with parchment paper with about a ½ inch of space in between each chip. Any overlapping will cause them to stick together.
Bake chips at 325 degrees F for 15 minutes and then keep your eyes on them to get them as crispy as possible without burning them.

Next using a 2-3 inch ring mold spread about 1 tablespoon inside each mold forming a round disk. Continue the process until you’ve used all of your cheese. Then place one slice of pepperoni over each crisp.
Bake for about 10-13 minutes until the cheese looks lightly golden and crisp. Let cool to room temperature (about 10-15 minutes) before plating.

The breading is really simple. I use two parts Pork King Good breadcrumbs along with Coconut flour and some spices. I’ve also substituted almond flour for breading and found that it’s a bit heavier a crust. I like the light coating on this recipe since I’m tossing the chicken in a sauce afterwards. If you don’t have any pork king good breadcrumbs you can always pulse some pork rinds in a food processor.
