Chip / Cracker / Crunchy snack

I've made the cheese crisps and really like them. I haven't made any of the other chips / cracker recipes, but I'm wanting something CRUNCHY!

What are your BEST suggestions (recipes, links and / or pictures are appreciated) for crispy snacks, crackers and / or chips.

And please don't suggest celery.

I have been making chips out of lavash!! Just cut into squares, spray with oil, sprinkle with salt.
Bake for just a few minutes in 400 degree oven. Watch, they cook quick!

My Crisp Nutty crackers are VERY crunchy and great for spreading with butter and putting cheese on top or whatever. Orange and red peppers (my fave colors) are crunchy when very fresh.

I cut a small low carb tortilla into small wedges with a pizza cutter, fried them in bacon grease and salted them. Ate them with homemade onion dip. Was really delish and only ate about half of them before that urge for something crunchy & salty was satisfied. My son loved them and made more for his brother later. My hubby, not so much, but he was eating dinner when he tried one so...

I second the crackers made from lavash. I nuke mine until crispy. Great with spinach dip or cut them into tostito size and make loaded nachos. Use ground beef, salsa, onion, guacamole, sour cream, olives, or whatever low carb topping that you like.

The Almond Thins and Jen's spinoff version are reeaaaallllly gooooood! I can eat a whole panful of either one without breaking a sweat.

Other crunchy snacks - chicharron - we have a new Mexican market here that makes their own and MAN they're good fresh. Bears no resemblance to the prepackaged ones like Bakenettes or Mission (although those are OK too, just no comparison to the fresh ones) - can you eat nuts yet? I like to crunch on nuts.

Oh, another crunchy thing I like - a handful of dry Fiber One cereal! Yep, the original "twigs" type. It's just slightly sweetened and it has a pretty satisfying crunch factor.

I second almond thins . I love Jen's and made them last weekend. When I made them MISS BBG , I made them in 1 bowl them put equal amounts in 3 bowls them put flavorings in them.
1. bacon in the cracker then bacon on top and brushed with butter.
2. chicken base for chicken in the basket.
3. plain.

Let me tell you girlfriend they are so good. Plain or with dip. Very crunchy to.
My dh loves the wasa cracker , and parmasean & herb crackers too.

Provolone Crackers (my fav) and nut thins are the go-to crunchy snacks around here:









Or, very occasionally I'll cut a low carb tortilla into wedges, peel them apart and deep fry them. Makes 24 crunchy tortilla chips for 3g net carbs Very addictive though!

Thanks everyone. I'll have to try out some of these. I'm missing the crunch factor and veggies just aren't crackers / chips, ya know?

I like super simple recipes. I don't like a lot of steps or cooking time.

I got some silicone muffin cups and I put about a tbsp of the green can grated parmesan cheese in them, sprinkle some nacho flavor popcorn seasoning on them, and nuke for 1 minute. If the cheese is too dry (has sat too long ) I add a drop of water and nuke so they come together. They are delicious and you could put any flavorings in them you want.

I also like to take about 1/4 cup of shredded bag cheese, any flavor, and put in a hot non stick pan. Let it melt and get a little hard, enough for you to flip it, and let the other side cook until it comes together. I put them on a plate and let them dry out for a day in the fridge. They get super hard and crunchy the next day.

My old go to, though, pork rinds! I love em.

Or eat them hot sprinkled with a little dry ranch powder--like a cheese stick without the breading!

I love these dehydrated/freeze dried veggie chips I get from Central Market or Whole foods. The ingredients are usually veggie + oil + salt. (some varieties are olive oil, others use canola oil or oils that some frown upon) Some list only the vegetable itself (nothing added).

They are not carb-free because veggies do have carbs.... but they are crisp and crunchy and great for scooping up dips. My favs are onion slices, carrot chips, and green beans. Okra is good too. They are great for scooping up dips!



Another idea is the kale chips.
Crispy Kale Chips Recipe : Melissa d'Arabian : Food Network

They are a little too delicate to scoop up dips very well, but are great for snacking. I nearly ate an entire small head of kale one day! LOL But I didnt feel guilty.
