Regular readers know that I am a chip-aholic..... Nacho Cheese flavored Doritos was/is my favorite chip, LOVE 'em! Tortilla style chips, any style, were my go-to. Chips and salsa, Chips and Chile con Queso, Nachos........ Who doesn't love Nachos? For me that was all chip heaven, the ultimate in snacks! But I don't eat that kind of thing anymore, in fact I haven't had a chip since July 15.
With my Carb-Check diet, I've found a replacement for chips - pork rinds, a.k.a. chicharones - so I guess it is only appropriate then that I found a replacement today for nachos and the like using pork rinds. This recipe is not only delicious and easy peasy to prepare, but it only has about two carbs!
Mike's Carb-Check Diet "Nachos"
- BBQ Flavored Pork Rinds
- Shredded Cheddar Cheese
- One jalapeno, diced
- Louisiana Hot Sauce to taste
Spread an even layer of BBQ flavored pork rinds on a plate, sprinkle on some shredded cheddar cheese, nuke it for a minute. While the plate is in the microwave, dice up a jalapeno pepper. After nuking, sprinkle on the jalapeno and dash the Louisiana Hot Sauce to taste. It's ANOTHER dose of YUM!
