Born and raised in Houston, TX, I got accustomed to having BBQ restaurants all over the place. Finding out that most BBQ sauce is packed with sugar was definitely not one of my favorite low-carb realizations! Almost every recipe I found contained ketchup and some form of sugar! I like my BBQ sauce slightly sweet, so I added a bit of Walden Farms Maple Syrup to half of the recipe. My dad prefers the solid, smokier flavor and enjoyed the other half with no sweetness. It's up to you which one to try! I highly recommend using this for BBQ Chicken pizza :)
2 tbsp chili powder
4 tbsp Worcestershire sauce
4 tbsp mustard
2 cups tomato sauce (I used homemade, but canned works fine as long as there isn't added sugar)
2 tbsp liquid smoke
4 tbsp apple cider vinegar
Salt and pepper to taste (I used Trader Joe's Garlic Salt)
1/3 cup Walden Farms Maple Syrup or powdered erythritol (optional)
Place all the ingredients in a saucepan over medium heat. Let simmer for 5-10 minutes. That's it!
This recipe makes approximately 16 servings (2 tbsp each) with the following nutritional information:

I LOVE buffalo chicken!!!! You can pretty much add it to anything and it will add a nice little kick to your recipes. This sauce contains only 3 ingredients that each have 0 carbs, so it's perfect for keto or any low-carb diet. If you aren't able to handle super spicy, try neutralizing with a tiny bit of mayonnaise.
16 oz cooked chicken, shredded
1/4 cup hot sauce (check the label to make sure it doesn't have any sugar!)
1 tbsp vinegar
1 tbsp butter, melted
Whisk together the hot sauce, vinegar, and melted butter. Pour over the shredded chicken and mix until evenly coated.
Use however you wish! I chose to put mine in a quesadilla with some cheese and mayonnaise. I highly recommend using this chicken on pizzas or flatbread.
I used to hate healthy salads. Don't get me wrong - I loved caesar salads and any greens drenched in ranch dressing, but didn't realize how unhealthy they were. Ahhhh ignorance is bliss.
This dressing is actually pretty damn delicious and satisfied my caesar salad cravings!
