Introduction

Based on a recipe from a superb low carb cook, I've "Texanized" the original. Have it plain OR garnish with your choice of salsa, sour cream (or Greek yogurt), chopped pickled/fresh jalapeños, chopped tomatoes, sliced/chopped avocados. The almond flour is really optional, but included in the nutritional statistics. The ricotta cheese blends in so well, you won't know it's there -- but adds some wonderful protein to the stats.
