Disks of crisp zucchini slices topped with spicy beef, olives, green onions and dairy-free cheese. Made paleo-friendly without the cheese. Served alongside MCT guacamole enriched with collagen.
This recipe is awesome to share with a pal or keep for yourself. You could make this low-carb recipe even more keto worthy by drizzling the whole thing with leftover bacon grease. If you’re in a keto household like ours, we always have high-quality bacon grease laying around. I don’t know what it is about nachos and bacon grease, but they just go together.
For the guacamole, because no plate of nachos is right without it, I added Vital Proteins Collagen Peptides into the mix to make the macros of this dish shine. I don’t generally recommend Vital Proteins anymore, but instead this collagen brand. And also, I wanted to help y’all expand your collagen horizons by seeing that you truly can add it to just about everything from sauces to smoothies, dressings, dips, casseroles, and everything in between.
You may be like, WAH, did she just use a microwave? Yes. Yes I did. You can oven bake the chips (425F/220C for 5 to 10 minutes on parchment paper-lined baking sheets) but the result is, well, bad. I wouldn’t recommend it. While I understand that microwaves may remove some nutrients, I don’t stress about it too much because I don’t use the microwave that often. I’d rather have crispy zucchini chips than no zucchini chips at all… or soggy ones because my oven doesn’t make them well.
Did you know MCT oil also comes in powdered form? Ya! In its powdered state, it's much easier to use, travel with, and incorporate into your favorite recipes. Plus, if you've experienced digestive issues with MCT oil before, MCT oil powder is a lot gentler on the gut. Check out my favorite brand of MCT oil powder here.
