DIRECTIONS

  1. Heat air fryer to 390°.
  2. Spray both sides of a tortilla with canola oil spray, sprinkle with a pinch of salt, and slice into 6 roughly even pieces. Air fry in a single layer for 3-4 minutes, flipping once halfway through. Repeat until all the tortillas have been made into chips. Set aside.
  3. Warm a heavy bottom pan (such as a cast iron) over medium heat. Add butter to melt, add chopped onion, chopped jalapeno, and ¼ teaspoon salt. Sautee until beginning to become translucent, about 3 minutes. Add garlic and sauté until fragrant, about 30 seconds. Add almond milk, cream, and cream cheese, reduce heat to simmer, stirring to melt the cream cheese. Shred pepper jack and cheddar cheeses. Once the cream cheese is melted, add shredded cheese a little bit at a time, allowing to melt between additions until all cheese is incorporated. Leave on low heat until ready to serve.
  4. Serve with chips while hot, topped with chopped tomatoes and cilantro. One serving is ¼ cup queso with 8 chips. 

Cooking Tip

Use bell pepper strips as an alternative to chips for a deliciously different queso!

Comment calculer les glucides nets

Avec l’approche nutritionnelle AtkinsMD, le décompte net AtkinsMC est calculé en soustrayant le nombre de grammes de fibres et de polyols (comme la glycérine et les alcools de sucre) du nombre total de grammes de glucides contenu dans les aliments entiers. Ce calcul correspond au concept voulant que les fibres et les polyols ont des répercussions minimales sur le taux de glycémie dans les quantités dans lesquelles on les retrouve dans les produits.
