You will never get bored on a keto diet. After all, there is a full list of foods you can eat. And if you love experimenting with them, you can cook many delicious dishes.
Today we will share with you a dish that is popular in Mexico. It’s called Chicken Queso Flameado.
Cheese lovers will appreciate this dish. In our recipe, we use 2 types of cheese, but you can add another one or replace it with the one that you like more.
Cheese is a keto-friendly ingredient. It is rich in protein and fats and contains a small amount of carbohydrates.
Chicken meat is used in the dish which provides enough protein that is so necessary for our bodies to maintain and grow muscle after training.
If you don’t like chicken, then you can replace it with shrimp or other meat that you like without any problems.
You can also try to experiment with different flavorings. This dish will look very impressive on the festive table. It can be served to your guests with some low carb toasts. Relax and enjoy your efforts. Bon Appetit!
