Recipe would be great —- DC is wrong in the carb count AGAIN — there's only 5.5 or rounded to 6 carbs if you follow the recipe per single pepper. If you don't use regular milk but use almond milk or cashew milk, you wipe out .5 carbs from milk sugar. If you cut out regular sauteed onions and change to green onion either tops or tops and whites, you knock out a full carb per pepper which brings it down to 4 carbs per single small pepper serving. This is why I ONLY use green onions — they have more potassium gram for gram, more Vit C and lutein and zeaxanthin for eye health that NO OTHER onion has and much lower in calories and carbs. And that's why my new A1c is now 5.1 down from 5.2 — I seriously watch my carbs and yet had lunch at Taco Bueno today, just didn't eat the Party Taco shells, just the delicious insides. I've now broken A1c level of 90 day average BG of 100 which is the top of the normal range. I also do NOT add salt to any recipe. If someone wants to salt their portion, that's just fine with me but adding salt does NOTHING to recipe prep so I don't ever do it.
