Low Carb Taco Bake

CRUST
4 ounces cream cheese, softened
3 eggs
13 cup heavy cream
12 teaspoon taco seasoning
8 ounces shredded cheddar cheese

TOPPING
1 lb ground beef
3 teaspoons taco seasoning
1cup low carb tomato sauce
4 ounces chopped green chilies
8 ounces cheddar cheese, shredded

Crust: beat the cream cheese and eggs until smooth, then add in cream and seasoning.
Spread cheese over a 9 X 13 pan with parchment paper on it, then pour in the egg mixture as evenly as possible. Bake at 375ºF, 25-30 minutes or more. Let stand 5 minutes before adding the topping.

Topping: brown the hamburger; drain fat. Stir in the seasoning, tomato sauce and chiles. Spread over the crust. Top with cheese. Reduce oven to 350ºF and bake another 20 minutes or so until hot and bubbly. Serve with the toppings of your choice. I used guacamole. I think sour cream would be good too!

crockpot beer chicken tacos

Since there is just two of us, eating a whole chicken is a week long process.  So far I’ve really enjoyed the crockpot beer chicken that I made the other day.  I have said it before, everything tastes better in a tortilla.  I decided this is a good time to test that theory out by putting the beer chicken into a tortilla with cheese.  My theory is still right.  This makes a great little taco and was a great leftover meal!

Ingredients:
Chicken
Cheese
Tortilla… I used wheat tortillas because that is all I had.

Microwave for 1 minute. Then eat!

Taco Shack

Every once in a while, if we are in a hurry, we will go to the Taco Shack on Metric for breakfast. They make a pretty decent breakfast taco. I don’t really care for their hot sauce but that’s not a big deal for me anyway. Today I was annoyed though, because I was in the mood for some chips and queso for breakfast. They said they don’t serve that at breakfast time. So I asked for guacamole and chips since it was on the breakfast menu and the guy said they don’t do any chips for breakfast. What kind of Mexican food restaurant doesn’t have chips for breakfast!? I’m sure we will go back, but I won’t be getting chips then either.
