Favorite crock-pot recipes? (Low Carb)
 
I was wondering if anyone has a favorite recipe? I was thinking about doing

4 chicken breasts
1 can salsa verde (Herdez)
green chiles
cilantro

and letting it all cook for a couple hours. Favorites anyone?? Hope you all are having a great Sunday!:heart:

I do the exact same recipe except with pork. In the old days I would add potatoes about half way through.

A good number of low carb crock-pot meals seem to be 3 ingredient meals...
1) a main meat
2) your choice of salsa and/or broth
And
3) your choice of veggies.

My 3 ingredient crock-pot recipe of choice these days is meatball stew; the main meat being meatballs.

I like chicken thighs cooked in chicken broth, with a bit of salt, garlic and good pinch of cayenne added. I'll often add what veggies I have to use, but green beans, leftover leafy greens, celery, kale, are good to add. If a big crockpot, I add a can of coconut milk towards the end of cooking. You could add a bit of sour cream at the end instead of coconut milk.

Potatoes are generally too carby for most low-carb eaters.

Here is a great link with TONS of crockpot recipes:

I do one similar to what you're planning, but I also like to throw in a cup or more of Tostitos Salsa con Queso. Makes a really nice creamy sauce with the salsa and peppers. Some chopped onion is good too, or some sliced green onion as a garnish if you want to keep the carbs down even further.

Buffalo chicken Dip (It's NOT just for SuperBowl parties)

There are many recipes for this online. This is the one that I follow and use:

2 (10 ounce) cans chicken
2 (8 ounce) packets cream cheese
3/4 cup hot sauce (I use Frank's)
1 cup ranch dressing
2 cups mild cheddar cheese

NOTE: Depending on how I feel I will leave out or include the ranch dressing; 9x out of 10 I leave it out!
