These Grain Free Tortilla Chips are easy to make and will satisfy all your chips + guac cravings. Made with mostly almond flour, they are Gluten Free, Sugar Free and Paleo.
Two of my favorite times of year are happening right now, at the exact same time! That would be the start of baseball season and hockey playoffs. My life is now all Detroit sports, all the time, especially after work hours. I don't hate a thing about it. Actually, I love it. We had a couple friends over for opening day of Tigers' baseball and I treated them to a nice spread. Seriously, I think I covered the whole table with different foods and recipes I've been working on. Of course, now I'm going to be mean and not share them with you, because they will (eventually) all end up here and I don't want to ruin the surprise. Really, this is me just doing you a favor.
Baseball and hockey may be my favorite, but know what isn't? The absurd amount of restaurants that bring out free chips & salsa. I can refuse bread like it's my job, but put some tortilla chips in front of me and I turn to mush. Since I don't react poorly to them, I indulge myself every once in awhile but for the most part I try not to open that gateway real frequently.
After holding out one night and not indulging at dinner, I experienced a kind of "duh!" moment when I realized it was entirely possible for me to make a Paleo-friendly "tortilla" chip. These are not a lot of work and a batch makes a nice quantity, enough that you can share with 2-3 others and still get a fair serving size. They taste good by themselves, with salsa or with some guac! You'll never believe that these are grain free and gluten free Paleo chip options, but I swear - they are!
