These Keto Crispy Brussels Sprouts with Cotija are a delicious low-carb side dish. These crispy Brussels sprouts could be key to converting sprout haters!
I love the smokiness from the bacon, the heat from the jalapeño, and the creamy Mexican queso cotija with the crispy sprouts. Plus you get even more bacon flavor from cooking the sprouts in the rendered bacon grease.
Pretty delicious! I love serving this side with roasted salmon, a steak with chimichurri, or even grilled shrimp!
