Sorry about the delay, everyone! I got a kidney infection and it was pretty nasty, I do not recommend it. Needing to drink so much water and cranberry juice kicked me right out of ketosis, so I am starting at square one. That is ok! I have a ton of ideas to share with the world, and it will be kind of fun to monitor how quickly my body can get back into the swing of things and what cravings pop up I have to conquer!
So, on topic! What the heck is Quesadilla Dip?
It is a wonderful cheesy, creamy, and “tex-mex” inspired dip. Think of all the fillings of your favorite Americanized foods. I call it Quesadilla dip because it has cheese, obviously… but also because you can put it inside a low carb tortilla, fry it up and have a quesadilla that is pretty bomb, honestly. You can also just eat it like a casserole if you want alongside a salad for a faux “taco salad” feel. So many good options!
So what are you using to dip?
I use pork rinds, though there are some decent other options. Cheese crisps, low carb tortilla chips, you can fry your own low carb tortillas! I will do a multi review on my favorite store bought options soon! It is tasty enough to serve to low carb and non-low carb eaters
Ok, so how are we making this!
