I’m not horsing around this is “real” Beef Tacos with Nutchos

I am a huge fan of nachos but living a low carb diet life nachos tops the list of things that you should not eat. So the other day I stumbled over a recipe of nut-crackers and I thought I should be able to use that idea to convert it into nachos. So this evening I got to work,  I also chose not to use any pre-packed taco spices and salsa that are filled with sugar, starch and other unidentified unpronounceable ingredients  …here we go!

How to: Start with chopping the nuts in a mixer and mix in the eggs and season with Salt and the red Chili Pepper. “Dott” the mixture on parchment paper to small round looking sized chips and place them in the oven for around 10-15 minutes at 150 C/300F or until they are crisp and hard.

Fry the meat and the garlic and season with the spices. I always add water and let the minced beef simmer until the water has evaporated.

Mash the avocado and mix in all the other ingredients for the guacamole. I always make sure I have a lot of lime juice because this prevents the avocado to become brown.

Once again I got use for the mixer when making the salsa just place all the ingredients and run it for a couple of minutes

Enjoy!!!
