Monkey Meat

recipe-monkey-meat
There’s no monkeying around with this spicy little dish. There is a lot of chopping and prep time but the final product is well worth it. Remove seeds from chiles and peppers if less heat is desired. Serve this meat over hot rice or with tortillas, guacamole, sour cream, salsa, etc. If fresh tomatoes are not in season, a 14.5 ounce can of diced tomatoes may be substituted. Low carb, high protein, Weight Watchers friendly dish.

About the Author:

Hello and thanks for popping by! My name is Kim and I love to cook low carbs recipes, desserts, salads and soups. I am always on the hunt for new recipes to make over. My husband Paul was diagnosed with slow onset Type 1 diabetes (LADA) over 5 years ago so we were forced to change the way we did things when it came to cooking. We have always been a healthy and active family. I play soccer, we both run 3-4 times per week and walk 5km most week days after dinner. Our kids play soccer and rugby and are no strangers to a healthy lifestyle. Spending time in the kitchen is always time well spent in my humble opinion and I love to share my cooking successes with you here. There may be hiccups along the way but we keep going and I hope our passion for food translates to your kitchen. Feel free to explore and remember to check us out on Face Book, Twitter, Instagram and Flickr.
