Are you ready for these Keto Appetizers?

Preheat the oven to 375 degrees.

Hand shred 8 ounces of Colby jack cheese. Pre shredded cheese does not melt as well in the oven to help make the taquitos roll properly, so it is best to shred your cheese by hand for this recipe.

Make 6 round mounds of shredded cheese on a baking sheet that is lined with parchment paper.

Leave space between each pile of cheese so that it has room to expand as it bakes. Bake for 8 minutes.

While the cheese is baking, place 1 tablespoon of oil in a skillet over medium-high heat on the stove.
