It’s fall here in Michigan and that leads me to bring out the crockpot and make lots of easy comfort foods. There are so many ways to make low-carb meals in the crockpot. In fact I have three crockpots going at once many times. I can cook up a batch of low-carb meals and we eat them all week. We usually have enough variety that we don’t get sick of any one thing during the weeek.
Easy Crockpot Salsa Chicken
This super easy recipe is low in carbs, versatile and is sure to please the whole family. Just place some chicken breasts and a jar of salsa in the crockpot and cook on high for 2 hours. After 2 hours, take the chicken and place in a baking dish. Top with shredded cheese and place in the oven at 350 for about 15 minutes or until cheese is melted and bubbly. Once the chicken is cooked, you can eat as is, or chop up and put in a low carb tortilla. Here is a great low carb tortilla, or you can use lettuce to wrap it up.
Chicken Crockpot Bacon Chowder
This chicken crockpot bacon chowder has become a favorite in our house. I do have to say that I leave the mushrooms out. I cannot stand mushrooms, but my husband likes them. Once in awhile I’ll buy fresh ones in the deli and use them in his chef salad. But, I refuse to cook with them. The chowder is just perfect without them. I’m sure mushroom lovers would just as soon use them.
Crockpot Pizza Casserole
Who doesn’t love pizza? Unfortunately, with low carb, we have to get creative with the crust. With this recipe, you forget about the crust and just eat it all!
15 Low Carb Recipes
Here are 15 great low-carb recipes for the crockpot that the owner of GlueSticksAndGumdrops has rounded up for us. I have tried several of these and my favorite is the low-carb cheeseburger soup.
Garlic Herb Mashed Cauliflower
This is the perfect side dish when you are missing mashed potatoes. I will be making this for Thanksgiving. Of course, I still make real mashed potatoes for the people that can eat them.
It’s pretty easy to cook low carb with your crock pot. The nice thing is that you can make soups, casseroles, or other recipes that you can eat with or without side dishes. A lot of recipes can be used with tortillas, or lettuce wraps. Or just a plain old fork or spoon.
