Default Low-carb Doritos



Zucchini Doritos-style chips


1 large zucchini, shredded
2 eggs
2 cups cheese


Preheat oven to 450 degrees F.

Grease 2 cookie sheets.

Cut ends from zucchini. Shred. Mix with egg and cheese. Make 6-8” circles on greased cookie sheet(s). Bake at 450 degrees for 12 minutes. Loosen and flip the circles. Bake for another 5 minutes at 450 degrees.

They are the bomb, diggetyboo. There are so many flavors of popcorn seasoning to try with these, and I've been giving many of them a shot. Barbecue, nacho, cinnamon apple, sour cream and onion, nacho cheese, white cheddar--it's so much fun! And the zucchini takes all of the flavors fabulously.

The main thing is to give the chips a day or two to utterly dry out prior to tossing with the popcorn seasoning. A little seasoning goes a long way and then only adheres enough, without being clumpy.

I think I going to try these (I do like pork rinds as a chip substitute but always good to have a change!)...
Might have to try some other seasonings though because most of the popcorn seasonings I have seen have gluten which I can't have.

I'd kiss ya' if I could.

Man! Those look yummie.

I just stocked up on zucchini too, I'm gonna try these out for sure, but where do I get all those wonderful popcorn seasonings from?

Thanks for posting this.

The popcorn seasonings are at local stores, but you can buy them online.

For gluten-intolerant folks, definitely look for organic popcorn seasonings and for cheddar cheese powder. You won't be disappointed!

Thanks for being so sweet! I just had Cinnamon apple chips and they rock!

Zukes are hit and miss right now. Some of my stores have them, and some don't. Worst-case, try the cauliflower version, and use cheese flavors. Cauliflowers and cheeses go very well together.

Luke-- if you find the cheddar, let me know. I did my searching online, but would like to look at Vitamin Cottage and see what they carry.

Any chance these might work without the cheese for us dairy-allergic folks?

I've seen cheese substitute made with hemp, and rice protien. Don't remember the brands though.

I am told by friends who use no cheese products that soy cheese worked fine in this recipe.

Wow!

Who would of thought popcorn seasonings could make me so happy!

I purchased my first one today at Walmart. I was looking for Nacho Cheddar, but none to be found. They did have Ranch so I got that one.

I was so excited to try it, I couldn't wait for the Zucchini chips so I just nuked some Trader Joe's Organic white string cheese in the Microwave and then sprinkled with the Ranch seasonings. Taste like Lay''s Potato Chips.

Now I'm just gonna order the 12 pack variety popcorn seasonings from Amazon to add to my pantry.

Thanks again. I'm in Heaven.

I have 7 of th 12 and have been really happy with them. There is a small amount of sugar in the cinnamon apple flavor, so use that one sparingly and after induction.

Let me know your faves! My favorites are nacho and sour cream and onion.
