My Famous Keto Spicy Chorizo Crack Slaw!
Well, it’s famous in these parts! :-)
Just in case you don’t know, Crack Slaw is a term used in the low carb world for any recipe that makes use of ground pork or beef and shredded cabbage.
My take on keto crack slaw is super fast with only 5 ingredients! It’s an excellent one pan meal for a weeknight dinner and family friendly to boot!
I work full time so I need short cuts!
What sausage to use in this Spicy Chorizo crack slaw recipe?
I found the chorizo in the grocery store where my son works. It was hand made locally with no gluten, fillers, wheat, nitrates, nothing but meat and spice. It was outrageously expensive and I practically dropped the package when I read the price. Thank goodness for employee family discounts!
But bless my soul, it was worth every cent. I might have to put a Donate Button on this blog so I can buy it again! :-) It really was the most delicious thing I have eaten in awhile and the spicing was absolutely perfect and divine. It made the recipe even easier, nothing else to add folks!
But I would use whatever chorizo sausage you already have in your own market. Just look for one that has no added sugar and wheat fillers.
And if you love chorizo for breakfast then why not give give these Keto Chorizo Eggs a try?
Gather these items for the Spicy Chorizo Crack Slaw Recipe
(Printable recipe card is just below this section)
- coconut oil
- spicy chorizo sausage links
- coleslaw mix (I used basic tri color mix)
- tomato paste or low carb ketchup (I prefer the ketchup)
- A good non stick pan, preferably not Teflon. Please read about the dangers of using Teflon here.
This is the #1 best selling non stick pan on Amazon. I have 2 of them in different sizes and I LOVE them! I have also seen them at Costco and other places.
It’s important to note that tomato paste has about 3 carbs per tablespoon, so if this does not fit into your daily allowances then use sugar free ketchup like this one. It has only 1 carb per tablespoon and I really like the taste of it. My kids can’t tell the difference when they accidently use ‘mom’s ketchup’.
