I’ve always been a compulsive snacker. It’s how I get through my day. I’ll usually skip through lunch so I can have more of a carb allocation to snacks. But instead of missing out on lunch, I decided to try something more low carb friendly. That’s when I noticed a bag of pepperonis in the fridge to make these delicious pepperoni chips.
Trust me when I tell you that you will not be able to stop eating these. And the best part about these is how easy they are to make! Just pepperonis, paper towels, microwave and 1-3 minutes. Then you’ll be left with crispy perfection. Since making these I haven’t missed potato chips whatsoever. The crunch and flavor are just what I need for my carb cravings.
These pepperoni chips hold up really well so you can serve them up with dip. I prefer to have them with salsa but they also taste great with artichoke dip and queso.
