LFG Taco Chips and Dips
Updated: Feb 1, 2019
Doritos got nothin' on these lectin free taco chips! All the crunch and seasoning without the corn and bad fat. Dunk them in an array of tasty dips on game day.
Drooling while your friends gorge on chips and dips during the big game is madness. Stop the madness with Lectin Free Gourmet taco chips to dunk in a variety of tasty dips. You'll have the best game day snacks in the house.
Deep Fat Fried Things Just Taste Better
I keep a deep fat fryer filled with pure olive oil on the kitchen counter for whenever the mood strikes. I use it to make Lectin Free Gourmet buffalo wings, pulled pastured pork, sweet potato fries and a lot more. Some people are programmed to think deep fat fried equals bad. Not necessarily. Frying is a good oil, like olive, at a low temperature (below the smoke point) is just fine. Good and varied fats are key!
I make my own Lectin Free Gourmet tortillas for street tacos and other various recipes. I thought I'd pimp up the recipe to taste more like Doritos. These are really my basic tortilla recipe with a few additions.
So I fired up the fryer, mixed up a batch of my grain-free tortillas and added millet meal for that "corn" crunch. I also mixed in classic taco seasonings like cumin, ancho chili powder, and garlic salt. Sure enough, the chips were a success, so I'm sharing how to make them as well as three yummy dips to go with them.
Switching Up the Mexican Classics
The jicama and green mango pico has a familiar but fresh face that makes you wonder "have we met?" But then when you taste this pico, you're like, no we haven't met and wow that's way better than I thought it was going to be. It has a lovely crunch and tartness and the radishes give it just the right pow.
The queso is very much like quesos you've had but without any of the bad stuff. The tomatoes are skinned and seeds removed, the starch is from a safe root, and the cheese is from a grass fed cow. So, you're welcome!
My four-ingredient guacamole is just comfort food to me. My kids devour it and it's just so healthy. Avocados are full of good lectins and good fat. And the fresh garlic and lime really shine through.

Chips -- Heat your deep fat fryer filled with pure olive oil (not extra virgin) to 300 degrees. In a food processor with dough blade, blend all the ingredients until it forms a ball. Divide the ball into 8 equal pieces. Roll each piece into a ball and flatten with your palm between two sheets of plastic wrap. Roll out into a 6 inch diameter circle about 1/10 inch thin. Cut into 8 pie pieces. Drop 'em in the fryer for about 2-3 minutes or until lightly browned. Turn chips into a basket lined with a paper napkin or towel. Sprinkle with more seasoning and salt if desired.
Pico -- Dice jicama, mango and radishes and put into a medium bowl. Slice onions and add them. Chop the cilantro and add. Mix. Add a pinch of salt and let the mixture sweat for a few minutes. Squeeze the lime and pour the juice over the mixture. Stir and dump into medium dip bowl..
Queso -- First off, peel and seed the tomato. Then dice it. Mince the garlic. Slice the green onion. Melt the butter in a small sauce pan. Whisk in starch until smooth and bubbly.
