Since switching to a low carb lifestyle I have missed nothing more than tortilla chips! The salt, the crunch, the salsa….the gauc! How’s a girl supposed to survive! πŸ™ˆ I found this recipe while perusing one of my favorite blogs HelloAdamsFamily.com. It was love at first sight; low carb dreams in real life! 😍 We tried them for the first time this past week and they were everything I hoped them to be – I knew I had to share!

Low Carb, Chip-less NachosIngrediants

  • Tri-Colored Mini Bell Peppers
  • Ground Beef
  • Taco Seasoning
  • Toppings of your choice
    • Cilantro, or no Cilantro?? (Answer below!)

Low Carb, Chip-less Nachos

Prepare

To begin, brown your meat in a skillet on medium-high heat. While the meat is cooking, seed and half your mini-peppers. 

Arrange the half peppers on a large sheet pan lined and greased before using.

Once meat is browned add taco seasoning and water as instructed.

Low Carb, Chip-less Nachos

Scoop taco meat into half peppers and sprinkle with shredded cheese.

Place sheet pan in a 400-degree oven of 8-10 minutes, or until the cheese has melted.

Remove from the oven and top these low carb nachos with your favorites. I am all about the sour cream and cilantro, while the hubs is all about the jalapenos and salsa🌢.

What are your favorites?

Thanks for reading!

Loaf of Bread – KETO Friendly

Since going KETO after the new year I have missed nothing as much as a fresh slice of bread with butter. If you know anything about KETO you know that the butter is not the issue in the equation, there is always room for more butter. πŸ˜‰ Bread, on the other hand, is far too high in carbohydrates to be KETO compliant. Until now, this KETO friendly bread is easy to make and even easier to enjoy!

KETO Bread

Ingredients

  • Eggs
  • Cream of Tarter
  • Butter
  • Almond Flour
  • Baking Powder
  • Salt 

KETO Bread

Prepare

Begin by separating the egg whites into one bowl and the egg yolks into another bowl.

To the egg whites add the cream of tartar and whip to stiff peaks. Next add the butter, almond flour, baking powder and salt to the egg yolks and combine.

Finally, mix the egg whites into the egg yolk mixture. Begin by adding 1/3 of the whites, mix thoroughly and then add the remaining whites. 

Pour mixture into a lined loaf pan and place in a 375-degree oven for 30-40 minutes.

KETO Bread

Rest

Once baking is complete remove from the oven. Allow the loaf to cool for at least 30 minutes before serving. Store in an airtight container between servings.
