I love making Keto Taco in a Bag with Quest Chips especially on Taco Tuesdays!
I used to make taco in a bag all the time before my low carb and keto days. I used to use Doritos and I remember how much my whole family enjoyed this simple technique. When I started Keto I swore that we would still enjoy some of the same recipes we used to before I non keto days and this recipe is a perfect example of me holding true to my word!
Thank goodness Quest makes delicious chips! They are super crunchy and high in protein and low in carbohydrates. Total win-win for this recipe and our low carb lifestyle!
