What options are there for keto diet tacos, you ask? You’ve come to the right place! I had the same problem when I first started keto, and now that I’ve been at it for a while, I can’t believe how many options there are for keto tacos!
And boy do I have options for you! I’ll show you what you can use for a low carb tortilla option, what toppings will work on keto, and I’ll even give you some great protein option recipes for the taco meat. Let’s get started!
Keto Taco Protein Options: The Meat of the Matter
The meat in tacos is sort of the main feature of the meal for most people. There are so many options! Here are some of my absolute favorites.
The tortilla part is probably the most difficult at first when you start keto. It’s extremely difficult to find a keto tortilla that has the same properties as a gluten-filled flour tortilla. But I have a few options for you to choose from!
These taco avocados are genius! Instead of topping your taco with avocados, just slice the avocado in half and make a taco avocado boat.
You can eat them as-is, or bake in the oven for a few minutes to melt the cheese and make the avocado warm and creamy.
If you haven’t tried baking an avocado yet, this is the recipe to try it on! The first question I usually get asked is, “Does that make the avocado brown?” The answer is no, it doesn’t. (Check out the photo below.)
At the right temperature and baked for just a short amount of time, baking the avocado just makes it warm and creamy (and delicious!).
Tip: Place the avocado on a muffin tin to bake so that the halves don’t tip over and spill the filling out.
Could there possibly be anything easier than swapping out a tortilla for a leaf of lettuce? I used romaine here, but you can use any other leaf lettuce, like butter lettuces, to put your taco toppings in.
