Servings 12 servings
⅓ teaspoon chili powder⅓ teaspoon onion powder¼ teaspoon garlic powder¼ teaspoon oregano¾ teaspoon cumin¾ teaspoon smoked paprika
1 cup almond flour or 100g2 tablespoons psyllium husk powder or 15g½ teaspoon baking powder½ teaspoon xanthan gum⅔ teaspoon salt1 large egg1 egg white1 tablespoon coconut oil or olive oil2 tablespoons water
Preheat oven to 355F / 180C / 160 fan.
Prepare the taco seasoning by whisking all the ingredients together in a small bowl.
Place the dry ingredients (almond flour, psyllium husk powder, baking powder, xanthan gum, salt, and taco seasoning) into a mixing bowl and stir to combine.
Add in the wet ingredients (eggs, oil, and water) and mix well.
Place in the fridge to rest for 15 minutes then shape into a ball with your hands.
Cut the ball into 2 pieces. Place 1 ball between 2 sheets of parchment paper and flatten with your hands. Then, roll thinly using a rolling pin to about the thickness of a coin.
Remove the top sheet of parchment Cut into triangles. Gather up any dough ends from ball one and include them in ball two. Cut remaining dough into triangles. You should have 60 triangles in all.
Place triangles on a baking sheet with space around each one, so they don’t overlap.
Bake for 7- 10 minutes or until golden. Keep an eye on them, as cooking times will vary depending on how thin you roll them. Remove from the oven and allow to cool to firm up.
Air Fryer Method
Spray chips with a fine spray of olive oil on both sides. Preheat your air fryer if your model requires it. Lay the tortilla chips in a single layer, so they don’t touch each other. Cook at 335F or 168C for 4 minutes. Allow chips to cool to crisp up. Note: you will need to do this in batches to cook all the tortillas.
