Low Carb Snacks and Appetizers

How about a thread for low carb snacks and appetiziers?

I'll start us off.

Red and Green Bell Pepper Bites

1 medium Bell pepper
1medium green bell pepper
1/4 cup sliced almonds
4 oz cream cheese softened
1 tsp no salt lemon pepper seasoning blend
1 tsp fresh lemon juice

Cut each bell pepper in half lengthwise; discard the stems, ribs and seeds, Cut each half into six peices. Arrange the pieces with the skin side down on a decorative serving platter, set aside.

In a medium skillet, dry roast the almonds over medium heat for 3-4 minutes or until golden brown, stirring occasionally. Transfer 1 tbsp of the almonds to a small plate and reserve for garnishing. Process the remaining almods in a food processor or blender 15-20 seconds until finely ground.

In a medium mixing bowl, beat the cream chese, lemon pepper seasoning, and lemon juice with an electric mixer for 1-2 minutes or until creamy. Add the ground almonds and breat for 10 second or until combined.

Spoon the mixture into a piping bag fitted with a wide star or round tip. Pipe about 1 tsp f the mixture onto each bell pepper piece. Garnish with the sliced almonds. (They are prettier if you place two of the sliced almonds into on side of the filling on each, so that they look like a slightly open set of wings)
