KETO LOW-CARB BACON-WRAPPED CHORIZO
I love making these little, spicy Keto Low-Carb Bacon-Wrapped Chorizo for Shawn and me. We can devour quite a few before dinner. They are tasty, filling, and addictive. It is possible to find sugar-free sausage, mostly at butcher shops. The good news is that authentic Chorizo is sugar-free. Imitations may have sugar and wheat. Also choose sugar-free bacon.
WHAT IS CHORIZO?
Originating in Spain, Chorizo is a type of sausage commonly found in many countries around the world. It is made from ground pork, seasoned with smoked paprika and other spices, and then cured. The sausage can be either sweet or spicy, depending on the type of paprika and spices used. Chorizo is a versatile ingredient that can be used in many different dishes, such as pasta, stews, and soups. It is also often cooked on its own and served as a tapa, or small dish, in Spain. Chorizo is a flavorful and delicious addition to many recipes and is loved by many people around the world.
WHAT IS THE NUTRITIONAL VALUE OF KETO LOW-CARB BACON-WRAPPED CHORIZO?
Keto Low-Carb Bacon-Wrapped Chorizo has some nutrition. The nutritional value of this sausage can vary depending on the ingredients used and the method of preparation.
In most cases, chorizo is made from pork meat and fat, and seasoned with various spices, including paprika, garlic, and chili powder. As a result, chorizo is high in calories, saturated fat, and sodium. A 3-ounce serving of chorizo contains around 300 calories, 25 grams of fat, and 800 milligrams of sodium. However, this Spanish treasure also contains protein, vitamin B12, and zinc. A 3-ounce serving of chorizo provides around 15 grams of protein, which is essential for building and repairing muscles. Vitamin B12 helps maintain healthy nerve cells and produces red blood cells, while zinc supports the immune system and helps wounds heal. Overall, while chorizo can be a tasty addition to meals, it should be consumed in moderation due to its high calorie, high saturated fat, and sodium content. It is important to balance this sausage with other nutrient-dense foods to maintain a healthy diet. In other words, eat Chorizo once in a while.

WHAT WINE HARMONIZES WITH KETO LOW-CARB BACON-WRAPPED CHORIZO?
Can you pair wine with Keto Low-Carb Bacon-Wrapped Chorizo? The fattiness from the bacon and sausage and spiciness from the sausage calls for an off-dry white wine. In following a Keto diet or in living a low-carb lifestyle, we don’t want to use up your carbs on a glass of wine. Why add the extra carbs to your meal when you can find zero carb wines! You have a couple of options:
- Drink whatever wine you like (as long as it’s bone dry) and don’t worry about pairing the wine to dish. Enjoy your wine the way you like it.
- If you like to create harmony between the wine and the food, you’ll need some sweetness in the wine to offset the heat and spice. Add a pinch of stevia or monk fruit sweetener to your glass of wine. Choose a white like Riesling or Gewurztraminer or a pink rose. These varieties taste great when bone dry or sweet. So they taste great with the added sweetener. The wine’s sweetness will nicely offset the heat and spice.
*Wine Tips: To support your Keto diet or low-carb lifestyle, choose low-carb, low-sugar, and low-alcohol wines that are free of additives and artificial coloring. Include your wine carb macros as part of your meal. Remember, your liver will process alcohol before nutrients, pausing ketone creation and slowing the ketosis process. Your body will also metabolize alcohol as fuel before using food. This can slow fat burning and may cause your body to store carbs, fat, and protein as excess body fat. Alcohol consumption also stimulates the appetite. So, drink low-sugar, low-carb, and low alcohol wines in moderation.
