Happy Birthday Andy!!!
The best of low carb crackers
Both of these are KILLER GOOD!!
Almond Thins (think wheat thins) and if you want a lot of variations and easier methods look here.
Cheez-its– the easiest cracker ever! The key is to buy Kraft “Deluxe American” cheese slices. Other brands don’t work.
These aren’t “good for low carb”- they are really good!
Edited to add: A great chip can easily be made by frying pieces of Joseph’s low carb lavash (Walmart deli area) for just a few seconds.
Well… Andy chose to shower instead. 😉
Low carb chicken chili
I think this’d work fine with beef as well. It was very good! Serves 2-3.
1.5 lbs chicken breast, cubed
2-3 T butter
optional- chopped celery and onion (I like, DH doesn’t)
1 cup chicken broth
2 cloves of garlic, minced
pepper to taste
1 t cumin
1 T chili powder
1 10 oz can mild Ro-tel (even mild turns this spicy)
1 can Eden Organic Black Soybeans (I promise they taste great! Buy here if you can’t find them)
2 slices Deluxe American cheese slices
Fry chicken (and celery and onion if you want them) in pot with the butter. Half way through add garlic. Add remaining ingredients except cheese and cook until most of the juice is gone. Remove from heat and stir in cheese (it helps thicken the chili).
Serve with these “cheez-its”- absolutely AMAZING low carb crackers. I can’t tell you how many times I’ve tried and my husband has tried to make something crispy with just cheese and our oven and have failed miserably, lol. This is so simple and they come out perfect in 65 seconds. We even made smoked gouda crackers. Watch out- they are so addictive!
Low carb barbeque sauce
3/4 cup Heinz reduced sugar ketchup (12)
2 T Heinz Worcestershire sauce (about 2)
1/4 cup Regina white wine vinegar (about 2)
1/2 cup Great Value beef broth
1 pkt Sweetleaf or other sweetner
1 t onion powder
1 t garlic powder
1 T mustard
1/2 t liquid smoke
McCormick Steakhouse Seasoning grinder (or black pepper)
Heat in saucepan and mix well.
16 carbs whole recipe. Great added to shredded chicken and served with coleslaw in lettuce wraps. If desired, cook down to 1 cup for thicker sauce for about 1 carb per T.
