Jalapeno Cheese Crisps
Recently my go to snack when I am wanting something crunchy are keto cheese chips. I love how simple they are to make and I love how tasty they are. However sometimes I want a bit of a change, and so when I want to change things up, I make these jalapeno Cheese Crisps. If you are looking for more keto snacks check out the Keto Snacks list.
This Keto jalapeno Cheese Crisps recipe makes tasty keto cheese chips using the microwave. If you are looking to make them in the oven, check out this oven baked cheese crisps recipe or you can use the keto cheese taco shell recipe and not bend them.
When you are making these Jalapeno Cheese Crisps you can use either jarred jalapeno peppers or fresh jalapeno peppers. Personally I prefer using fresh jalapenos, but in a pinch I have used jarred. If you are looking for less spice, take the seeds out of your jalapeno peppers, if you are wanting more spice then leave them in.
Types of Cheese to Use when Making Jalapeno Cheese Crisps
When you are making these cheese crisps the more aged the cheese is the better it will work and the better they taste. I always grab the naturally aged cheese options at the store when I plan on making them. You can make cheese chips using block cheese, pre-sliced cheese or shredded cheese, whatever you have on hand will work if you are in a pinch.
Most of the time when I make these jalapeno cheese crisps I use a combination of Sharp Cheddar Cheese and pepper jack cheese. When making these I used the sandwich sized cheese slices, But you can change up the flavors with different types of cheese too.
- Yellow or White Cheddar Cheese – Normally I love white cheddar cheese but you HAVE to try them with the classic yellow cheddar cheese, they really taste like chez-its with a kick!
- Parmesan Cheese – I like using a block and slicing it into thin pieces
- Provolone Cheese
- Mozzarella Cheese (I prefer using piles of shredded cheese when making Mozzarella cheese chips, over slices of fresh cheese)
- Colby-Jack Cheese
- Gouda Cheese
- Pepper Jack Cheese
