I discovered this recipe while making chorizo-gouda jalapeño poppers and I had a bit of mixture left over. What better way to finish it off than to plop it on a salad? This is a quick lunch or dinner recipe for those who enjoy a Mexican-style dish enhanced with a unique flavor. Gouda is a creamy, rich cheese that compliments the spicy flavor of the chorizo. In past recreations of this dish I’ve added peppers, but to keep it extra keto-friendly I skipped the added carbs. Some people may want salsa (if you can find a carb-friendly version) or chopped tomatoes. Mix it up!
As many people discover with keto, salads of all kinds: taco, egg, cheeseburger, chicken, tuna, etc. go a long way when meal planning and incorporating a healthy amount of fats/proteins/carbs. Salads are convenient to apply a distinct flavor, add basic fiber, essential proteins, and fats. I urge you to try chorizo with gouda because it’s something new and unique to many taste buds. If you’re not fond of the spicy flavor of chorizo you could always use ground beef and add seasoning to liven up the dish. This is a versatile recipe that helps spark creativity in your daily menu.
