A Food Tutorial!

First, before I do anything...


OK, this is completely different, but here it goes...This is not a Trick, it is a Treat!

My husband and I are on a low carb diet, so that means no bread.  Which, when making casseroles, means no bread crumbs to grace the top...until now.

I love these Mission Carb Balance Tortillas. They are only 6 net carbs per tortilla, and are delicious.  We use them for wraps, enchiladas, anything you can do with a tortilla.  I have made tortilla chips and shells for taco salads also.

I decided to try an experiment.  It worked beautifully!

I took one tortilla, cut it up, and dried it.  I just left it to sit out overnight, but you could do it in the oven also.

I broke up the pieces, and ground them in my food processor.

One tortilla made about 1/2 c of crumbs. Regular bread crumbs are about 20 carbs per 1/3 c, these are 6 carbs per 1/2 cup.  It doesn't sound like much, but those nasty little carbs add up.

I added the crumbs to some butter, and some Italian Seasoning.

I made Baked Sour Cream Chicken and topped them with my crumb mixture.  It was awesome!!!!  The crumbs provided the crunch that we love on a casserole!  (PS:  How do you like my Halloween kitchen in the background?)

Stay hungry, my friends!

And, for the kiddies...Have a SAFE AND FUN HALLOWEEN!!!
