Paleo Nachos (grain free, dairy free)

Categories Food

Paleo nachos may be top 10 of my most loved recipes right now. They are simple to make, super versatile and fill that hole in your dairy free heart that misses the traditional version. Today’s recipe is inspired by one I recently saw on twitter but with more of a protein twist. And of course, it’s gluten and grain free!

When I first went dairy free 6+ years ago, the options for cheese alternatives weren’t so great ingredient wise. But to keep this recipe swift, I’m leaning into using some of my favorite brands like Violife & Miyokos. And as always, I’m reaching for my go to grain free tortilla chips from Siete to make my paleo nachos base.

I typically meal prep pasture raised shredded chicken since it’s super easy to throw into meals. There’s MANY ways to do it. But to maximize on time, I love using the instant pot method perfected by the Detoxinista. It works for both fresh and frozen chicken. So if you like to batch cook like I do or need a protein source quickly, it’s a great option!
