If you have been reading Bobbi's Kozy Kitchen for a very long you know we are football fans here.
I mean like, we decorate in green and blue for Christmas, fly a Seahawk flag year-round, and even named our dogs Sia and Hawk.
Sea - Hawk.....get it? I know.
Yes, we are those football fans.
Ya, we are just a teensy bit obsessed errr enthusiastic when it comes to football.
So, when this time of the year rolls around my head is filled with thoughts of all sorts of delicious appetizers and party kinds of food.
Things like my Buffalo Chicken aka Chicken Crack Dip that is requested EVERY.SINGLE.YEAR. and these Broccoli Cheese Balls that I can't stop shoving in my face!
OK, OK, get to the dip already Bobbi.
First off, let's start at the beginning.
WHAT IS TEXAS TRASH DIP?
I am not really sure where the name came from. Possibly the Tex-Mex flavor profile?
Possibly because you open a bunch of cans and dump them in a dish?
But Texas Trash is traditionally a warm bean dip with green chiles, Mexican spices, and cheese, all baked into a delicious dip.
So, what a low carb girl like me to do when she is craving this ooey-gooey goodness?
Well, at first I just thought it was one of those things I had to say adios to anything like this.
But now, over a year and a half into this lifestyle, I have become determined to find a way to enjoy anything I want.
- Cream Cheese/Sour Cream - Make sure to use full-fat cream cheese and sour cream. Low fat has added carbs.
- No Bean Chili - My favorite store-bought no bean chili is Wolf Brand not only because it is the lowest in carbs but because I really like the flavor. You can also use Nally, and Hormel is good too, it is just a thinner chili.
- Diced Green Chiles - I love these hatch green chiles, but you can use your favorite kind of green chiles.
EQUIPMENT YOU WILL NEED:
- There isn't any special equipment needed for this recipe. Just a large mixing bowl, whisk, and a 9 x 13 baking dish.
HOW TO MAKE LOW CARB TEXAS TRASH DIP

FREQUENTLY ASKED QUESTIONS ABOUT TEXAS TRASH DIP
Can I use a different brand of chili in this Texas Trash Dip?
Of course! I use Wolf Brand because it is the lowest in carbs, and tastes great, but any no-bean chili will work, or even this Coney Island Hot Dog Chili.
Can I use a different cheese?
Yup, I love Mexican blend cheese but a cheddar jack, pepper jack, or sharp cheddar would be pretty dang yummy in this too!
