  • Prepare low carb chili of your choice, following instructions for chicken chili or pork/beef chili recipes here.
  • Preheat oven to 400 degrees F.
  • Line a baking sheet with parchment paper or silicone baking mat.
  • Melt mozzarella and cream cheese in the microwave for 60 seconds.
  • Stir almond flour and egg in with the melted cheese mixture to form the dough.
  • Wet your hands to prevent the dough from sticking to your hands and evenly divide into 6 balls of dough.
  • Keeping fingers wet, press each ball of dough into a flat circle about 5-6 inches in diameter.
  • Spoon 1/4 cup of chili onto the center of the dough, leaving the outer edges free of filling.
  • Fold dough over the filling and press edges together. Strengthen the seal by crimping the edges with your fingertips or using the back of a wet fork.
  • Repeat with each ball of dough until all hand pies are formed. Poke holes in the tops of hand pies with wet fork.
  • Bake for 15 minutes, or until dough becomes golden.
  • Let cool before serving.
