Low Carb Jalapeno Chips

Being on the low carb diet isn’t easy stuff. Some days when I walk into the office, I want to dive into the donuts laid out in our conference room. I want to get a side of chips with my lunch. I even find myself dreaming about Mcdonald’s from time to time. But the thing I miss the most about eating whatever I want is snacking.

We have such a hard time finding healthy alternatives to our favorite snacks and it makes lazy Sunday’s incredibly difficult! My guilty pleasure is parking my butt on the couch and snacking on a bag of chips. I’ve finally found a low carb replacement that satisfies my snacking: Low Carb Fried Jalapeno “Chips.”

If you like spicy food, these are right up your alley. If you want less spice, be sure to get all of the seeds out of the jalapenos.

This recipe only requires three ingredients and it’s so, so simple. They cook super fast, though, so be careful not to burn them!

Let’s get started.
