Low Carb - Easy TexMex Hash

a crazy easy recipe to make and low carb.


- 3lb log of ground beef
- large onion, chopped
- 2 or 3 jalapenos chopped (i am using the some of the left over canned jalapenos from the Pico recipe)
- 1.5 cups salsa
- chilli powder and black pepper
- Mozzarella or Monteray jack cheese as a topping

1. Brown ground beef in wok, drain liquid as it accumulates. when meat has just a little pink left, add the chopped onions and jalapenos.
2. Turn heat to medium and cook another 5-10 minutes until meat is fully coated.
3. turn heat to medium low and add 1 tablespoon pepper and 3 tablespoons chili powder and the salsa. stir well.
4. stir every few minutes until heated.
Will make about 6 one-cup size servings. If eating right away, top with the shredded cheese. If not let cool in tupperware about 30min then refrigerate. If eating as leftovers, add the cheese when you microwave.
Note - years ago before i watched carbs, the original recipe included a can of diced potatoes. This will add about 35carbs to the entire wok. so about 6-7 more carbs per serving. not a huge amount but recipe tastes the same to me without it.
- do a taste test after youre finished...if you like more spicey add some more jalapenos or pepper.

Per serving this will have about 4 carbs before whatever is in the cheese you use.  This is dinner for the week
