Chili Cheese Tots

Sonic Drive Thru is a restaurant chain known to many, and in no small part thanks to their chili cheese tots. Tots slathered in chili and cheese sauce might seem out of reach for anyone following a low carb, low glycemic load plan, but think again.

These tots are not only induction friendly, they’re gluten-free. And at less than half of the carbs of the Sonic chili Cheese Tots, you can enjoy guilt-free knowing you’re getting in your vegetable, dairy and your meat groups.

Go for it. You know you want to.

  2. Made a yummy dinner! The chili is extraordinary!


  1. […] Queso cheese sauce is a pretty wonderful, simple recipe. A little bit of salsa mixed with an already low carb cheese sauce makes the perfect addition to everything, from stuffed chicken to these chili cheese tots. […]
