Keto Taco Lettuce Wraps

There are a few types of low carb tortillas and keto tortillas on the market now. (You can buy some low carb wraps here and here.)

When I first had lettuce wrap tacos, I had no idea that there were low carb grain free options. I knew there were flour tortillas, corn tortillas, and lettuce wraps.

I admit, I thought people were a little bonkers for putting their taco fillings inside a piece of lettuce. Lettuce wrap tacos? Weird! 

I’ve been doing our tacos this way for years now, and I’m honestly quite used to it. Even my kids, who are very picky about their standby meals like tacos and spaghetti, don’t even comment anymore when I make lettuce wrap tacos. They’re too busy chowing down!

Which Type of Lettuce Should I Use For Lettuce Wraps?

The trick is to choose the right type of lettuce. Do you remember when iceberg was the only option for lettuce in grocery stores? Or at least, that’s what everyone used!

Now there are plenty of the best broadleaf lettuces available in grocery stores. Here’s a handy list of lettuces that work great for healthy lettuce wraps!

Lettuces to use in lettuce wraps and tacos:

  1. Romaine
  2. Boston
  3. Butter
  4. Iceberg (great for Asian wraps!)
  5. Bibb

Try one type of lettuce for your keto lettuce wrap tacos, and if you don’t like it, try a different one!

We normally use romaine because it has a good crunch and my kids can handle it better because of the stiff rib down the center. Bibb and butter lettuces tend to be softer and more flexible.
