I used to take cucumber slices or zucchini slices to Mexican restaurants with me in a ziploc bag. I'm not a low carb person, but those worked for me. Good luck!

If it's at home, I would splurge on a serving of the real thing once in a while. Measure them out, savor them, and enjoy it! Total deprivation doesn't work and 1 serving of tortilla chips every week or so is not going to tank your diet- it's far better to indulge in moderation than to fall off the wagon and eat two baskets full the next time you're at a Mexican restaurant. Try eating a large salad dressed with lots of salsa and a few chips to munch in between bites of salad.

I second what gnat said, but if you decide to look for an alternative try this out:

Start with some of these

Cut into triangles

Bake at 350F for bout 20-25 minutes flipping once
get something like this
