Low Carb “Dorito” Cheese Crisps


Baked cheese crisps are the ultimate easy low carb snack. These ones are made even easier by using pre-sliced cheese of the sort that’s ready to go for sandwiches. Simply cut each of these squares into 4 smaller squares and bake them. Then sprinkle on a little taco seasoning and they taste just like Doritos! Make sure to find a taco seasoning without sugar or other additives.

Low Carb “Dorito” Cheese Crisps


  • 6 slices Cheddar or Colby Jack cheese (pre-sliced, packaged cheese)
  • 2 to 3 teaspoons taco seasoning


  1. Preheat the oven to 350F and line a large rimmed baking sheet with parchment paper.
  2. Cut each of the slices evenly into 4 pieces so that you have 24 squares. Arrange about an inch apart on the prepared baking sheet.
  3. Bake 25 to 30 minutes, until golden brown and just firm to the touch. Remove from the oven and sprinkle the taco seasoning evenly over the warm crisps.
  4. Let cool completely on the pan. They will continue to crisp up as they cool.

I make these all the time and they are great and crispy. I put mine in 12 single silicone muffin cups and microwave for two minutes. Perfect shape and so easy.
