Recipe: Keto Chili Cheese Dog Casserole


Here’s another low-carb recipe for you, courtesy of Wendy Polisi of Kicking Carbs: Keto Chili Cheese Dog Casserole! My wife and I had this recently for dinner, and it was good. However, two things are worth noting — first, the recipe says to preheat the oven from the get-go; this is incorrect as you have many preparatory steps to take before the oven is even needed. Second, I added leftover Banza macaroni and cheese shells to my leftovers of this casserole and it made it eminently better than the recipe below. I strongly encourage you to do the same if you’re looking to make this more flavorful, interesting, and satisfying. Read on for the recipe, nutritional information, and more. Enjoy!
