Ditch the chips for mini sweet peppers in these low carb nachos. They’re the perfect base for nachos as they’re thicker and stronger than a tortilla chip so you can make sure that all of your delicious nacho toppings stay on top without the base breaking below you. They also add a sweet, crisp pop of flavor to the nachos!

What’s not to love about nachos?! They’re easy to make, loaded with delicious toppings, totally acceptable to eat for dinner (in my book!), but also the perfect appetizer to share with friends at a party or sporting event!

While The Ultimate Pulled Pork Nachos used to be my go-to nacho recipe for game day, they’re now tied for first place with these Ultimate Low Carb Nachos!
