Quick and Easy Snack: Jalapeño Cheese Crisps

This quick, easy 2-ingredient recipe for jalapeño cheese crisps are the perfect low-carb snack! The recipe below is extremely easy, transports well and since it’s so quick to make, you can make whatever batch size you want for later snacking pleasure. Every once in a while you get the munchies. When you need to fix your snack attack issues, you need to have an arsenal of recipes at the ready. A ton of snack recipes require a lot of effort for just a quick snack. Now you’ll have a round in the chamber when the snack monster appears thanks to these quick and easy jalapeño cheese crisps.

It’s surprising how difficult random snacking can be if you’re on any type of diet. For people on the ketogenic diet, it’s definitely an eye opener. You can’t find very much in convenience stores and gas stations when you want a bite on the go. You notice that everything is packed with the very sugar and carbs you’re trying to avoid. Lots have to resort to meal planning, but for some, that’s complicated. Sometimes you just need a snack, man.

Let’s get these bad boys going so we can get to snacking. First, grate your cheese. Don’t buy the pre-grated this time, they’re coated to prevent caking and you’re not about that life. I suppose in a pinch pre-grated will work, but I’m not sure because I choose only the finest value sharp cheddar in block form because it’s cheaper. #highsociety

 

Once you have about a cup of grated sharp cheddar, you’ll want to arrange them in tiny piles on parchment paper. You should not follow my example, as I did not have parchment paper like I thought I did. Let me repeat, you do not want to try this recipe without parchment paper.

You with me on this? Good.

 

Once you’ve arranged them neatly on your parchment paper, put them under the broiler for about 10 minutes, or until they turn into jalapeño cheese crisps. I placed them at the second to closest rack height away from the broiler. Now is definitely not the time you want to walk away.  Just keep your eyes on those bubbly bastards and be ready to remove the  baking sheet quickly.

 

If you’ve used parchment paper as I may have mentioned, you should be able to remove the jalapeño cheese crisps to cool pretty easily. If you’re like me and didn’t use the parchment, hope and pray you get a few for pictures. Do you have at least three decent crisps to photograph? Yes? No problem, pile the remaining sad squished crumbs in the middle of a decorative plate and gingerly place the good ones atop to hide the failure. Take photos, dip in ranch, enjoy the three bites you accomplished and learn from your mistakes.
