WOE: Low carb
Love me some chili dip!

Soften 8oz cream cheese in glass pie plate by microwaving 20-30 seconds. Spead to make a "crust" of the cream cheese over the bottom of the pie plate.
Top with well drained or very thick low carb chili
Top with 8 oz (or more!) shredded cheese- I prefer cheddarjack
Bake at 350 for 30 minutes or until cheese is melted
Serve with pork rinds and sour cream...YUM!

Jalapeno Fudge
from Texas Co-Op Power magazine

4 - 6 jalapenos, chopped (fresh or pickled, to taste)
1 pound cheddar cheese, grated (I use Cheddar/Jack. Regular shredded is easier to mix than the finely shredded)
2 - 3 eggs, beaten

Mix all until it holds together. Pat into 9 x 13-inch Pyrex pan. Do not oil pan! Bake at 300 degrees for 45 minutes to 1 hour (until slightly browned around edges). Cut into small squares. Best served when still warm.

This is much easier than stuffing individual jalapenos.

Rachael Ray Jalapeno Dip

Ingredients
8 jalapeños, halved and seeded
1 tablespoon extra-virgin olive oil (EVOO)
2 8-ounce blocks cream cheese or Neufchatel cheese, softened
1 cup sour cream
1 cup shredded cheddar cheese, divided
Assorted dippers - veggis, , whatever you like
----------------------------------------------------------------------
Preparation
Preheat a broiler or grill to medium-high.
Toss the jalapeño halves with the EVOO and roast under the broiler or char on the grill until softened and blackened, about 3 minutes per side.
Turn the oven to 400ºF. Let the peppers cool enough to handle them, then chop them up.
In a large mixing bowl, combine the cream cheese, sour cream, half of the cheddar and all of the chopped roasted peppers. Transfer the mixture to a baking dish and top with the remaining shredded cheese . Bake the dip until golden brown and bubbly, 15-18 minutes.

We weren't planning on anything more than hot wings - but in the last few days we've added a number of guests to our gathering so we'll be doing the wings, bacon wrapped stuffed jalapenos, Cajun shrimp, deviled eggs and cheesecake muffins.

I made some deviled eggs last week using mustard that had horseradish in it...OMG they were fabulous! Lots of flavor and kick!!! You might want to try it!

All of these ideas sound great!

I'm on JUDDD and on a down day. DH is having hot wings and I'm making him stuffed mushrooms. I'm making myself a PIZZA using a lc tortilla, mixing up some canned chicken breast w/ 1/2 laughing cow garlic cheese wedge with some reduced fat blue cheese crumbles, green onions, hot wing sauce, baking w/ a little mozz on top! Might eat a few celery sticks with it!

This is a great idea, thanks! I've found Aidell's chicken meatballs (Zesty Italian Style with Mozzarella Cheese flavor) are pretty low carb (2 g carb per 3 meatballs) however they are pretty expensive for a small package. But this would work great for my family, and alfredo sauce would be better than the no-sugar added spaghetti sauce I used on them last week.

The cheesecake was delicious! And, words cannot describe how wonderful the orange zest smelled. In the future, I am going to make a crushed pecan and butter crust for it because I miss the crunch of a traditional cheesecake.

Easy Peasy ~ oven roasted jalapeno poppers. No need to bread them, just wrap each one in half a pc of bacon and pop them in the oven..... i stuff them with a blend of cream cheese and shredded cheddar and have also had success with laughing cow wedges. I use jalapenos AND those mini bell peppers for those who want them with a little less kick.

This is Limetwists' recipe word for word!

BACON DIP

1 part sour cream
1 part mayonnaise
Crumbled, cooked bacon to taste (I added probably two loose handfuls)
2-3 small chopped tomatoes, or a handful of quartered cherry tomatoes (once again, this is to taste)
Bunch of green onions, chopped (I used both the green parts and the whiter "stem" parts...but I like it that way)
Spices (I added lots of freshly ground cracked black pepper, some dried chives, a l+ittle garlic powder...really, you could add anything!)

Okay...I might be a little late on this, but my family has been making this "Chicken Ball" recipe for years, long before I ever went lc. And, it is lc!!

Chicken Ball
8 oz cream cheese, softened
2 cans chunky chicken
6 drops worcestershire
4 drops tobasco sauce
1 tsp lemon juice
crushed nuts

Mix all ingredients well. (It will be super soft, but try to mold into a ball) Roll in the crushed nuts (I "pat" them on, and it shapes as the nuts adhere). Chill. I use to eat this on crackers. Now, I eat it on cucumber rounds, green peppers, red peppers, celery...YUM>
