Looking for a crunchy keto chip to snack on or to enjoy with guacamole or dip? This two-ingredient fix will keep you satisfied!


4 servingservings
  • 8 oz. 225 g cheddar cheese or provolone cheese or edam cheese, in slices
  • ½ teaspoon ½ teaspoon paprika powder


Instructions are for 4 servings. Please modify as needed.

  1. Preheat the oven to 400°F (200°C). Place the cheese slices on a baking sheet lined with parchment paper.
  2. Sprinkle paprika powder on top and bake in the oven for about 8–10 minutes, depending on how thick the slices are. Pay attention towards the end so that you don't burn the cheese, as burned cheese tends to have a bitter taste.
  3. Let cool and enjoy — great alone as a crunchy snack or perfect to serve with guacamole.

    Do you refrigerate the cheese chips if you made extra?

    1 minute in the microwave on baking paper also works if you just want 1 or 2 - great way to curb a craving for something crunchy

    These are soooo good. I was desperate for something for lunch so I made these and had it with sour cream.

    Is it just me, or is anyone else having problems with them sticking to the parchment paper? Solutions?

    I was told that I need to go on a carb diet ti improve my health, mainly problems with my inside of the stomach, which include my intestines and need mainly meats, vegtables, no fruit, no breads, no rice, in other words, only meat and veggie. This inclludes no soda,no sweets and I presume anything sweet, therefore I need recipes for meals, including snacks. Don't want or shall I say don't need to lose any weight, but need to gain weight it, but having a tough time just trying to come up with differen ideas, therefore need help.

    These were pretty interesting! I didn't have sliced cheese, only grated, but I tried putting little piles of grated cheese on the parchment paper and it worked fairly well as a thin crispy little blob. I suspect sliced cheese (sliced fairly thin) would do better and look more like a chip of some sort. It did not stick to the paper.....I let them cool just a bit, and then a spatula easily lifts them off. I'm thinking next time I play around with this recipe I'll put some cayenne pepper on top of the cheese, or perhaps some ranch dressing powder (such as the one made to shake onto popcorn). I'll edit comments when I have tried more things. Overall, even the plain cheddar ones I made were oddly interesting crunch as a snack, but not delicious enough to go crazy with them. A few is enough! Quick little snack to have something a bit different.

    I have tried the chips several times... They never turn out crispy. I have tried slicing very thin, baking longer... Always have fat on the parchment paper they end up being chewy... Any ideas?!

    I would definitely let these burn a little bit in order to get them crunchy. I also used hot Hungarian paprkia. Blot with paper towels.

    I immediately transfer them to paper towels to absorb the extra fat, and gently pat the top of them with another paper towel. Worked great for me!

    I've just tried this, one minute in the microwave, absolutely delicious

    Whole Foods aka Whole Paycheck, sells these except they're made with parmesan cheese and they're sooo tasty, but they can be a little pricey. Will try to make my own with parm and with the different cheeses. THey definitely satisfy the crunch & chip cravings.

    Anyone have any ideas on what to put on them to make them taste like Cool Ranch Doritos?

    i ruined a pack of sliced cheddar because these stuck/melted into parchment paper and cheese grease spilled all over the over. Not like the pic at all! bummer

    Thanks for letting me know about this weekend but I will be there

    Just made these. So delicious!!

    I just made my own version of these tonight fried a little bit of butter in the frying pan. Probably could have done without the butter, but they came out quite crispy! I didn't think they were going to be crispy, but they absolutely were.

    Did some experimentation: Shredded cheese works better, the hard cheeses create a crisper end product (Parmesan, Romano). Softer cheese will create a more flexible chewy end product. I did a mix of Parm and Cheddar which was crispy yet chewy, but these worked out great a mini taco shells. I had left over taco meat, guacamole, salsa. Made a layered dip. Worked out wonderfully

    Alicia, I use non-stick aluminum foil with great results,; he foil can be used numerous times.
  19. Maddie
    I use shredded cheese preferably Colby Jack and I do a handful of cheese per pile to make 6 . Kind of flattten the pile but make sure there's at least an inch between or they'll join.

    These are so easy to make in the microwave:

    Using a silicon mold, I can turn a 12-slice package of cheese into crisps within 10 minutes, and they are all consistent in size and texture. I do 3 slices of cheese per batch, at 2 minutes per batch. I have three different size molds, resulting in either 12 small crisps, 6 medium crisps, or 3 large crisps in a batch.

    Sarah, use a silicon mold instead of parchment paper. Also, much quicker in the microwave.
  22. OgreZed
    Casey, if they're chewy, you haven't cooked them long enough. I do mine in the microwave in silicon molds. When they come out, the cheese is molten, but firms up within seconds and then crisps up after 20 to 30 seconds. I've done it with cheese slices, shredded cheese, even thicker chunks sliced off a block of cheese. When they come out chewy, it means they need to be microwaved a bit longer. It's usually pretty obvious because they aren't completely molten. I usually do about 2 minutes in the microwave for 3 packaged slices of cheese (i.e. about 60 grams when I do shredded or slice my own).
