The best benefit to eating low-carb is almost certainly cheese, right?
I’m a single mom who works full-time, so I need delicious recipes that are quick. I’m taking this to work for the rest of the week.
- 4 tablespoons butter
- 1 large onion, finely chopped
- 1/3 cup finely chop red bell pepper
- 1/3 cup finely chopped green pepper
- 5 cloves garlic, chopped
- 1/4 cup coconut flour
- 1/4 cup almond meal flour
- 2 cups chicken stock
- 1 1/2 cups half and half
- 1 1/2 cups coconut milk (Silk)
- 12 oz sharp cheddar, shredded
- 1/8 tsp xantham gum
- 1/4 tsp cayenne pepper
- Chopped green onions
- Sour cream on top
In a large saucepan, melt butter. Add onion and peppers, cook 4 minutes. Add garlic, sauté 2 minutes. Add flour and cook 2 minutes while stirring constantly. Slowly whisk in chicken stock, half and half, and coconut milk. Add xantham gum. Bring to a low boil and then simmer on low. Cool and stir frequently for 15-20 minutes. Add cheese 1/2 cup at a time, stir and wait to melt before adding more. Serve and top with 1 tablespoon of sour cream and green onions. Add some bacon if you have some!
I served this with cream cheese stuffed, bacon wrapped sweet peppers. I bought a bag of sweet mini peppers at Costco and used for both recipes.
