½ tsp salt

12 T Salt Free Taco Seasoning

Optional – 2 cups of frozen cauliflower rice

1/21 cup homemade or store bought pico de gallo or chopped cherry tomatoes

1 1/3  cup freshly shredded sharp cheddar or your favorite cheese (I love using the full amount of cheese -or- doing half shredded cheese and half of my 21 Day Fix Freezable Cheese Sauce)

optional toppings:  diced avocado or guacamole (FIXers – this would add more blue)

jalapeños

  4. Bake for 8 -10 minutes or until chips get golden and crispy.  Set aside and raise oven temp to 400.
