2 Ingredient Doritos Tortilla Chips (Keto, Low Carb)

Crispy, crunchy tortilla chips that taste like homemade Doritos. These chips are so easy to make. No mixing, no dough, no rolling. The chips come out super crispy and cheesy. You can easily customize the flavor by dusting them with your favorite seasonings. They are also naturally low carb and keto-friendly, though you don’t need to be on a low carb diet to enjoy them.

I made these chips as a snack recently and my family devoured them. We dusted them with nacho cheese powder, though you can do other seasonings as well like ranch dressing seasoning or cajun seasoning.

Ingredients

  • Cheddar Cheese Slices
  • Seasoning of your choice

The chips are made of just cheddar cheese. When the cheese is baked at low heat, it bubbles and crisps up, and very much reminds me of the texture of a tortilla chip. I recommend using a package of pre-sliced cheese. Not only does it save time, but it also helps ensure that all your chips have the same thickness so that they will all cook evenly. I recommend using mild cheddar cheese, so that the cheddar flavor doesn’t overpower whatever seasoning you will be using.

How to Make Low Carb Tortilla Chips

  • Cut each square cheese slice into four triangles by first cutting the cheese in half diagonally and then in half again.a slice of cheese cut into four triangles.
  • The triangles are then arranged on a baking sheet lined with parchment paper, spaced about 1 inch apart.
  • The cheese is baked at low heat (250F) for about 50 minutes or until the tops are firm. They are then flipped over and baked for another 10 minutes until both sides are crispy. As the chips cool, they will crisp up even more.
  • When the chips are cool, you can dust them with your favorite seasoning. I put a few tablespoons of seasoning in a plastic bag and added the chips and then shook them around until the chips were covered in seasoning.

Ingredients

  • 1 (8 oz) package cheddar cheese slices I used mild cheddar
  • 2-3 tbsp nacho cheese seasoning or seasoning of your choice

Instructions

  • Preheat oven to 250°F. Line a large baking sheet with parchment paper.
  • Divide each cheese slice into four triangles. First, slice the cheese in half diagonally. Then slice in half again diagonally. See photo in post for reference.
  • Arrange cheese triangles on prepared baking sheet, spacing them one inch apart. The cheese will puff up during baking so make sure they are not too close together.
  • Place into oven to bake. When the chips are baking, the cheese will puff up and bubble. Bake for about 50 minutes or until edges are firm and slightly browned and tops of the bubbled surface is firm. It’s okay if the flat parts of the triangles (the sections that didn’t bubble) are not yet firm.
  • Remove baking tray briefly so that you can flip all of the chips. Place them back into the oven and bake for about 10 minutes or until the chips turn slightly brown and the tops are firm. Remove chips from oven and let them cool fully. They will continue to crisp up as they cool. The chips may be a little oily and if desired, you can lightly blot the tops with a paper towel to remove excess oil.
  • When chips are fully cooled, add 1 heaping tbsp of seasoning to a plastic bag. Add about 1/3 of the chips and seal the bag. Shake the bag until chips are covered in seasoning. Remove and repeat with remaining chips and seasoning.

Notes

  • I recommend using pre-sliced cheese so that all your chips are the same thickness. However, of course, you can slice your own cheese. Just try your best to keep them all the same thickness. The cheese package I used contained 10 slices. I've seen some brands that contain 11 slices, so your baking time may vary depending on how thick your cheese slices are. 
  • If your cheese chips don't completely crisp up after they are cooled, you can always bake them longer until they are completely crispy.
  • I used this nacho cheese seasoning.* If you are looking for a healthier and lower sodium seasoning, there are other brands of nacho cheese seasoning that are low sodium. You can also dust with a dry herb seasoning blend like cajun seasoning.

  1. I am quite anxious to try this recipe, I bake cheese slices cut into 9 per slice, bake at 350 for 13-14 min. Have never had them bubble up, Thank you, going to make these today..

  2. Too bad the seasoning has maltodextin. ?

  3. Yo can do the same thing much faster in the microwave!

    • I’ve tried making these in the microwave but it didn’t work out for me. They turned out more like cheese crisps, but not like chips

  4. Oh my gosh im makimg these right now. Your my hero if these taste as good as the title claims. Ill update on my adventure.

  5. Check ingredients in “slices “ yikes not even cheese but a chemical cocktail,!  Ug

    • I think you are mistaking processed cheese slices with slices of real cheese. This recipe calls for slices of cheddar cheese which is just cheddar cheese already sliced up. And if you have issues with finding real cheese slices you can slice your own. It’s just more convenient to use already sliced cheese but it’s definitely not required.

  6. Looks tasy, Ill try that today 😛

  7. Has anyone tried these in an air fryer?

  8. These are delicious. They do remind me of Doritos (with the nacho cheese powder you recommend), but they also taste a lot like Cheezits. Although very easy to make, I wish they took less time. Then again, maybe that’s a good thing since I’d probably never stop eating them. And, they’re a huge hit for my keto and non-keto friends/family members. Any idea what’s the best way to store these (assuming they last longer than an hour) and for how long?
    Thanks for this awesome recipe.
