Portuguese Chourico and Peppers ~ Low Carb and Gluten Free ~ Served over Zoodles

This is one of my families favorites. Chourico is a hot Portuguese Sausage. I wanted it to be Low Carb and Gluten Free so I served it over Zoodles. Traditionally you would serve it on a Portuguese Roll.

Chourico and Peppers

In a Non-Stick Skillet:
1 Onion Chopped
1 Red Pepper Chopped
1 Green Pepper Chopped
Saute until done and beginning to brown
Add 6-7 Sliced Garlic Cloves
Cook 1 Minute
1# Ground Chourico
Mix in with the Onions and Peppers
Cook 3 Minutes

Deglaze with:
½ Cup Red Wine
Cook off

Pour the contents into a Sauce Pan
1- 14.5 ounce can Diced Tomatoes
½ Cup Chicken Stock or Water and Chicken Bouillon

Bring to a boil.. cover and simmer on medium heat 3-4 hours
Stir occasionally

For a Low Carb Option serve over Zoodles

Or serve on Portuguese Rolls (If you want a thicker sauce add some Tomato Paste along with the Diced Tomatoes. It hould be the consistency of Sloppy Joes)

Crock Pot Directions: Follow recipe above cook:
Low 8 Hours
High 4 Hours
