Low Cost, Low Carb Recipes

Low carb, low cost, and good. What more can you ask? The price per serving is almost always under $1.50, and is frequently under $1.00, even for protein dishes and main dish soups, salads and casseroles. That's the price here, when I figured the cost. Your cost may be higher or lower.

Use to stuff peppers or zucchini or just to eat. It's very versatile - use whatever you have in whatever quantities you have. Half chorizo, half hamburger is good; reduce the spices. You can use taco seasoning instead of individual spices if you prefer. Green peppers work just as well as the red and yellow peppers, and may be cheaper. A great big zucchini works just fine.
