Unless you’ve been living under a rock, you’ve probably heard that one of the most popular diets out there is Keto. From celebrities to seniors, there are millions of people across the globe finding health and wellness by simply making better food choices each day.
If you’re cutting back on bread and sugar in favor of good fats, proteins, and vegetables, then you might wonder if you can add a little zing to your life with Our Gourmet Hot Sauce.
Thankfully, our team has put together this guide to help you pair a delicious keto-friendly meal with your new favorite hot sauce. Here’s what you need to know about the Ketogenic diet and the wonderful ways you can spice up your healthy meals using Ghost Scream Hot Sauce.
What is the Keto Diet?
Keto is a very low carbohydrate, high fat diet that consists of restricting daily intake of things like bread, potatoes, sugars, and starches and replacing them with fats. The result is a metabolic state called Ketosis, which then starts to burn fat on the body for fuel.
While weight loss is generally the most common benefit, many diehard fans of the Ketogenic diet report feeling less brain fog, having a better overall sense of wellness, sleeping better, and increased energy throughout the day.
Fans of the Keto Diet generally lump themselves into two categories: strict and dirty. Strict Keto often means keeping daily logs and counting individual macros, while Dirty Keto devotees try to keep consumption of carbohydrates in a moderate range and usually don’t track meals.
Can You Eat Hot Sauce on the Keto Diet?
There are a lot of people out there wondering, is hot sauce Keto? The answer really depends on the brand and what ingredients are used in the concoction. Most hot sauces contain xanthan gum, an additive that is technically a carbohydrate. However, most people aren’t eating ghost pepper sauce for more than a few drops at a time. This means that the overall net carb count is minimal, and you still get a huge burst of flavor that can turn a boring meal into something exquisite.
Furthermore, Specialty Hot Sauce also makes an excellent addition to marinades, broth, eggs, fish, or just about any other protein you can think of. One of the true benefits of the Keto diet is the wide range of foods you have access to, and the addition of hot sauce only makes the process that much more enjoyable.
Keto Meals That Pair Well with Ghost Scream Hot Sauce
To help you understand the best Keto recipe pairings to go with our Ghost Scream Hot Sauce, we’ve picked five basic recipes for you to try. Of course, these meals have simple ingredients that you can try any night of the week and adjust to your own macro needs and personal tastes.
Original Hot Sauce & Bunless Blue Burgers
Forget drive-thru bunless burgers and their boring lettuce wraps. We personally love this Low Carb Blue Cheeseburger recipe from Low Carb Maven. While the recipe itself contains tons of flavor thanks to quality beef and the strong taste of the blue cheese, the real magic is when you add a slight dash of our Original Hot Sauce, one of our more spicy sauces. This combination of flavors is so exquisite that you won’t even miss the bun. We promise. Want an extra kick? Add a couple slices of bacon and avocado to the top of the patty before serving.
Ghost Truffle Hot Sauce & Spicy Deviled Eggs
Eggs are always a good choice when you’re following the Keto diet. Naturally high in protein, they’re amazing in a wide range of recipes. Before your next barbecue or family event, consider making these Easy Classic Deviled Eggs from Drive Me Hungry. Except, we’re going to add a twist. Add a bit of our Ghost Truffle Hot Sauce to the yolk mixture until you reach your desired level of heat. The combination of the creamy yolks, subtle heat, and flavorful truffle oil come together to create a sinfully delicious flavor profile that even Satan himself wouldn’t be able to resist.
Green Reaper Hot Sauce & Southwest Frittata
Brunch on the weekend will never be the same once you try out this Southwest Frittata recipe from Beauty And The Bench Press. Combining eggs, ground beef, cheese, peppers, and chilis, it is a delicious combination of flavor and healthy fats. Say goodbye to boring buffalo sauce and hello to our Green Reaper Hot Sauce. When you serve it up, be sure to add a little bit of our Green Reaper Sauce to the top. The hint of citrus flavor from the lime juice in this green hot sauce goes well with the flavor profile of the dish, which is sure to impress the whole family.
El Verde Hot Sauce & Chicken Stuffed Grilled Serranos
Of course, some of the best Keto recipes come out of trying random things in the kitchen. That’s what happened when one of our hot sauce fans decided to try something new. They combined cream cheese, shredded cheddar, and leftover rotisserie chicken breast together in a bowl and blended well. After tossing in a bit of our El Verde Hot Sauce, our medium heat sauce, they removed the seeds from a few Serrano peppers. Stuffing the chilis with the chicken mixture, they wrapped it in aluminum foil and stuck it on the grill for a few minutes. The result? Fire and flavor like no other. This is one Keto-friendly meal you’ll want to try out!
Ghost Scream Vindaloo Curry & Seasoned Cauliflower Rice
The cool thing about Keto is that it can really encompass nearly any type of cuisine after a few small adjustments. In this case, traditional curried rice takes on a new twist with the use of cauliflower. See how this one chef from Keto Connect tried it out, but instead of using curry powder, consider a bit of our Ghost Scream Vindaloo Curry Hot Sauce instead. Made with Moruga Scorpion Peppers, it combines heat with flavor for an exceptional treat.
