I love making these little, spicy Keto 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 BACON-WRAPPED CHORIZO?

Keto 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.

Due to the chorizo, this hors d’oeuvre is both fatty and spicy.  The bacon is salty. 

WHAT NON ALC WINE HARMONIZES WITH KETO BACON-WRAPPED CHORIZO?

Can you pair wine with Keto 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 non alcoholic wine. 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 non-alc wine to dish. Enjoy your non-alc 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 monk fruit sweetener to your glass.  Choose a white like de-alcoholized 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 non alcoholic wine’s sweetness will nicely offset the heat and spice.

Zero Alcohol Wine Tips:

ALCOHOL AND KETOSIS:

To support your Keto diet or low-carb lifestyle, opt for quality, non-alcoholic wines that are low-carb and low in sugar. Additionally, alcohol does not align with a keto diet or low-carb lifestyle. Moreover, your liver processes alcohol before nutrients, pausing ketone creation and slowing the ketosis process. Furthermore, your body will metabolize alcohol as fuel before utilizing food, which can decelerate fat burning and may lead to the storage of carbs, fat, and protein as excess body fat. Moreover, alcohol consumption stimulates the appetite, potentially causing overeating.

ALCOHOL AND HEALTH:

Did you know that when you consume alcohol, your liver has to work extra hard to break it down? This can result in damage to your liver. Furthermore, it can elevate your risk of health issues such as inflammation and cancer, particularly with heavy consumption. Additionally, alcohol can disrupt your blood sugar levels, leaving you feeling dehydrated and disrupting your body’s normal functions.

NON-ALCOHOLIC WINE AND HEALTH BENEFITS:

Non-alcoholic wines with minimal carbs and sugar are advantageous for your health. They not only aid in weight management, blood sugar control, and hydration but also contain essential nutrients and antioxidants from grapes that can decrease your risk of health conditions like heart disease. Consequently, since they lack alcohol, they’re ideal for socializing without any adverse effects, promoting feelings of happiness and reduced stress.
