Homemade ‘Man Food’ Low-Carb Chili Dogs

Filed under: Low-carb Recipes — @ June 23, 2007

Forget your typical diet food, how about some low-carb chili dogs?

I’m fully convinced that I’ve got some of the most clever and imaginative blog readers on the Internet today. If I never researched another topic again and just published all the e-mails I receive on a daily basis (hundreds!), then an entire blog would get filled with all sorts of interesting stuff (hey, that may not be a bad idea creating a “Jimmy Moore’s Mailbag” blog or something…I’ll think about it!).

One of my favorite kinds of e-mails are from people who want to share something they have done to help them as they are livin’ la vida low-carb. I received an e-mail from a Delaware man who came up with the perfect “low-carb recipe for some MAN food.” What’s that? Well, I’ll let him explain it to you.

“Enough of the salads and the stuff the persons of the female persuasion and the rabbits and birds are into,” he wrote in his e-mail.

HA! Amen brother! And so this regular reader of my blog passed along the following recipe to share with you that has been the mainstay of his low-carb diet in recent weeks helping him lose 24 pounds in about three weeks. COOL!

Check it out for yourself:


2 pounds ground sirloin
1 bag of your favorite chili mix (discard flour and beans)
1 large onion, chopped
1 8 oz. can of tomato sauce
1 8 oz. can of stewed tomatoes with liquid (optional)
1 package of your favorite all beef franks
Your favorite cheese

Click here to read the recipe on this “manly” recipe that even low-carb women will enjoy (and you’ve GOT to read the comment from a vegan woman named Mary who responded to this post claiming I was being “sexist” with it. Um, okay?!).
