Prep Time:

Serves:

2

Ingredients

Low-Carb Nacho Chips
  • 2 medium zucchini, sliced into thin rounds
Meat MCT Guacamole Toppings
  • 1/3 cup (38 g) shredded dairy-free cheese, optional
  • 3 tablespoons sliced black olives
  • 2 green onions, sliced

Instructions

  1. Line a large plate with parchment paper, placing each of the zucchini disks onto the paper being sure to not overlap. You will have to cook the zucchini in batches.
  2. Transfer the plate to the microwave and cook for 8 to 10 minutes on 50% power setting. You know the chips will be done with the edges curl and the middles get slightly golden. Once complete, remove the parchment paper from the microwave, flip over, and drop the chips onto a cooling rack. Repeat with remaining zucchini rounds.
  3. Meanwhile, place all the meat ingredients into a large frying pan. Heat on medium, rotating frequently, until the meat is no longer pink.
  4. Combine all of the MCT Guacamole ingredients together in a medium-sized bowl. Mash until combined.
  5. Transfer chips to a clean plate. Top with cooked meat, cheese, olives, and sliced green onions. Serve alongside MCT guacamole.

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.

Notes

Paleo: to keep the recipe paleo, remove the dairy-free cheese.
