A keto version of the famous spicy rolled corn chip

For those who can't resist the heat, keto takis are gluten free, rolled low carb chips dusted with a spicy lime flavored seasoning.

Takis have their own cult following. Those who love Takis, really love Takis. So I had to make a low carb version for those who miss their favorite snack chip. I used a similar recipe to my keto corn chips and Doritos and made these crunchy, spicy rolled chips!

There are different Taki flavors out there, but I’m tackling the Fuego flavor today as it is the most popular. Use my base keto tortilla chip recipe, I roll the dough into tubes then fry them in avocado oil. The Fuego seasoning was a little complex to match.

Not only are Fuego Takis spicy and obviously contain a mixture of chile peppers rather than just chili powder, but it has a slightly sweet and tangy note of lime.  For the chile pepper flavor, I settled on a mixture of chili powder, cayenne pepper and habanero powder. For the sweetened hint of lime flavor, instead of using lime juice which might make the rolled chips soggy, I used small amount of a sugar-free citrus drink powder. This is an electrolyte powder, so it adds additional salt to enhance the flavor of the keto Takis.

How to make takis

  1. Make rolled chips. Combine almond flour, unflavored protein powder, xanthan gum and salt. Roll very thing. Punch out small circles. Roll into tubes.
  2. Fry the chips in avocado oil until golden.
  3. Make Takis seasoning by combing chili powder, lime drink powder, powdered cayenne pepper, habanero pepper powder and garlic powder.
  4. Dust homemade Takis in the seasoning by adding to a ziploc bag or bowl and toss the rolled chips in the Taki seasoning.
