I promise you, I am not making it up. You can really make low carb cinnamon twists that taste just like Taco Bell’s, though, I’m not sure they carry them. It’s been a while since we’ve gone there and I know they discontinued some menu items. Either way, we have a low carb recipe that’s da bomb!
First, a funny story.
Once upon a time, hubby and I went to Taco Bell when I was pregnant. This was a crappy Taco Bell and they ALWAYS ran out of stuff. Actually, now that I think about it, they all do. I think they get bonuses for seeing who can run out of the most menu items. lol Anyway, I was preggo with one of the kids and I swear, it didn’t matter what day, what time of day or what item I ordered, they were always out. Want to know how to piss off a hungry pregnant woman? Tell her you’ve got no food.
Finally, I’d had enough and told hubby Taco Bell was banned. We were no longer eating from that place.
Fast forward two years. Yes, two years was how long it took me to go back to that place because I was so done with them. And I wasn’t even eating. Hubby was getting something for himself (because I still refused to order an item to be told, “Sorry ma’am, we just ran out of that” lie again).
A while later, we go home, have dinner (I ate from elsewhere) and we’re talking about going out or something. Well, hubby decides to log into our bank account to see how much we have. We’re negative like $4,856,632,597.63 according to our bank! WTF?
There’s a transaction from Taco Bell for that amount. But it gets worse. Yes, worse! We’d used the debit card several times that day at the grocery store, gas station, etc. All weekend, we had the joyous fun of watching every single transaction bounce and incur bounced check fees ($28/pop!) in the amount of almost $150!
The bank fixed everything on Monday and took away all the bounced check fees and Taco Bell reversed the charge and debited the correct amount but what a headache!
After Hubby bought the franchise, he made cinnamon twists.
Haha! No, that’s not quite how the story goes, but pretty close. We learned that pork rinds can take on many flavors and are generally good for almost any recipe. You can even use them as a breading, but that’s for another post. Somewhere, hubby had read about this phenomenon and decided to make cinnamon twists.
The recipe in itself is pretty simple, you just use butter and a mixture of cinnamon and sugar. It only takes a few minutes to make and according to him, it tastes just like the fast food flavor. I don’t eat pork rinds, it’s a mental thing, so I’ll take his word for it. We shared this recipe on our Instagram account and on a few message boards and Facebook groups that we’re on, and it’s always received a positive response.
