Ingredients You’ll Need

Jalapeno (½)

Paprika Powder ( )

How to Make Cheese Chips?

Step 1. Preheat your oven to 400 degrees Fahrenheit. Then place spoons of it on a parchment paper-lined baking tray.

When spooning your cheese, make sure you don’t pile your cheese too high, or else it won’t become crispy. You also want to leave enough space between your piles.

Step 2. Once you’ve made your cheese piles, top with paprika powder and jalapeno slices. Then bake for 8 to 10 minutes until slightly browned.

Make sure you watch your oven closely. The amount of time it will take your cheese chips to be done depends on how high and wide you make your cheese piles.

Your cheese piles can go from “almost done” to “burnt” pretty fast, so make sure you keep a good eye on them!

Do Keto Cheese Chips Need to Be Refrigerated?

Since these keto cheese chips are made of cheese, it’s best to put them in an airtight container, so they don’t get soft and put them in the fridge. You can store them for up to a week in the fridge.

I recommend these storage containers here because they don’t contain toxic chemicals that will leak into your food.

Are Cheese Chips Healthy?

Yes, keto chips are healthy. That’s because they’re made with cheese. Cheese is a good source of protein. It’s also high in fat, so it’s good if you’re on a high-fat diet.

It’s also rich in calcium and phosphorus, which you need for healthy bones. And it’s an excellent source of vitamins A, B12, B2, and zinc.

High-fat cheeses such as cheddar cheese also have a bit of conjugated linoleic acid (CLA). CLA is a substance that may lower inflammation.
