Sausage Taco Pig

Sometimes a brilliant idea whose time has come just pops out into the light of day. This one entailed putting together some of my favorite foods into a delectable, albeit perhaps unusual, combination. Ultra low on carbs and certain to satisfy your tastebuds (if yours are anything like mine) and keep you on track for your target weight. My wife thinks this dish is gross. What do you think?

The impetus behind this recipe was to devise a new nacho dish – I love nachos! – to replace an earlier one that substituted (soggy) squash slices for chips (HCG Diet Recipes – Great Phase 3 Nachos). As good as that dish is, it doesn’t quite hit the spot for me. No matter what I did, I couldn’t get the squash slices to be crispy.

Along comes my top ‘soul food’ – pork rinds. I grew up eating every part of the pig and even enjoyed pickled pig’s knuckles when I was younger (still available in major supermarkets). A while back I discovered pork rinds (aka, chicharrones) among all the potato chips and corn chips in the snack section of our local grocery store. They are a great replacement for carb-based chips – great with any dip (especially my famous clam dip, but that’s another story). No carbs whatsoever.

So why not pork rinds instead of chips or soggy squash slices for my nachos? I am only surprised that I didn’t think of it sooner. It is a wonderful discovery. I can have these nachos as often as I want.

Now to get a little creative … I’ve also enjoyed liverwurst (Braunschweiger) since I was in lederhosen (and I still am), so it occurred to me to combine a cross-cultural set of my personal favorites into what I now call my German Nachos Soul Food: pork rinds with scattered chunks of liverwurst, with melted cheese and the usual goodies that make nachos so tasty: guacamole, picante sauce, sour cream.

That’s really all there is to it, as shown in the photo below. I love this dish. It is not for everybody unless you have a taste for the ‘oddities’ in the recipe – pork rinds and liverwurst.

Indeed, in my opinion, this is an excellent dish for the hCG diet phase 3, when you have to keep your tastebuds happy without all those tasty (and nasty) carbs that undermine the final phase of the protocol. In fact, this is the kind of easy to prepare and delicious recipe that will serve you well for the long-term, long after you have completed your hCG diet plan.

Now, really…what do you think of my new creation?

All the best with the hCG diet phase 3,

    You know, pork rinds are kind of gross when you think about what they are but they are a really good snack for those of us that are trying to lose weight. If I was a skinny bean pole like some ladies then I wouldn’t eat them either but when you want something crunchy and salty then these are a great substitute for sure.

    I had no idea that these were called German nachos, why is that? I mean I am sure that it has something to do with the fact that Germans eat more of these or is that where they originated from? I happen to like pork rinds and have done a lot of different things with them but nachos has never been one of those things.

    I would have not dared to believe that an HCG diet could consist of soul food snacks such as pork rinds. This sounds too good to be true, but something tells me when you taste how good it is, it must feel like well worth the effort to prepare – even though it is by no means difficult to assemble. I just may give some of the recipes in this e-book a go.

    Now if only this pork rind recipe that is compatible with the HCG diet would add a little something spicy to it to make these hot pork rinds, well, that would be so tasty. What would anyone recommend? Curry? Paprika? I saw on “the chew that there is a chili pepper spice / condiment that adds what I’m looking for.

    Yummy. Once I complete this P2 round, may give it a try. I love the ingredients. Try Carolina Snacks in North Carolina. They make great skins and cracklings. They ship to your door!
    Thanks doc!

    I can’t understand how something deep fried can be allowable and good for you! How does this work? Are they not high in calories, fat and hydrogenation?

    Hi, Brett…Saturated fat is not the bogeyman that the uninformed would lead you to believe. You are right about hydrogenated fats, though. My recipe contains none. They are to be avoided.

    All the best,
    Dennis
