I had a few bites off this before I decided to make it a blog post. It turned out to be so good I decided to make it a post. I'm leaving my house in 15 minutes though, so it's going to be a very short blog post and I have not put this into MasterCook to get the nutritional info but it's pretty simple. The chicken, really barely any carbs. Nopalitos actually lower my blood sugar when I eat them, so I don't even count the carbs in them. The taco sauce has zero carbs. Most of the carbs would be in the pumpkin.
CHEESY NOPALITO CHICKEN
4 chicken breast halves (skinless and boneless)
Ortega Green Taco Sauce (enough to cover each chicken breast
About 1/2 cup chopped nopalitos
Fiesta Blend shredded cheese (or cheese of your choice)-enough to cover each chicken breast
In bottom of 9 x 13-inch baking pan, place each chicken breast. Cover each with green taco sauce. Top this with nopalitos, then onion. Sprinkle shredded cheese over top of all.
Bake in preheated 375 degree F oven for 50 to 60 minutes
SPICY PUMPKIN SIDE DISH
I can pumpkin puree
1 tsp blackstrap molasses
1 tsp pumpkin pie spice (I love Trader Joe's!)
8 packets Truvia
8 drops liquid sucralose
1/4 tsp salt
1 tbsp butter
In medium saucepan, place pumpkin puree, molasses, truvia, sucralose, salt, and butter. Heat, stirring constantly until heated through and butter is melted.
