12 Delicious Low-Carb Mexican Recipes

Hey! Welcome to the very first episode of our new weekly themed recipe roundups. The very first one is Mexican (obviously), because we are obsessed with it. Unfortunately, it’s a very carb-heavy cuisine. We do our very best to eat a fully low-carb diet, but Mexican food…it’s our kryptonite.

Luckily, there are lots of awesome people that have recreated some of our favorites without the carbs! Even we have reinvented some of our Mexican staples. So, without further ado…here are our favorite 12 Delicious Low-Carb Mexican Recipes found on the web.

1. Spicy Mexican Cauliflower Rice

Rice is a staple in many people’s diets and also a very difficult thing to give up when going low-carb. Luckily, the very versatile Mr. Cauliflower makes a great alternative, especially if you spice it up real good – like this amazing Spicy Mexican Cauliflower Rice!

2. Easy Fajita Frittata

3. Chicken Taco Soup

Chicken tacos are my very favorite, or as I like to call them – “Tikken Chacos”. This soup is literally my favorite soup EVER.

4. Grain-Free Fried Cheddar Mexican Pizza

Pizza and Mexican in the same meal? Is this the real life? Or is this just fantasy?

5. Spaghetti Squash Burrito Bowl

Spaghetti Squash Burrito Bowl

Burrito Bowls are all the rage right now, but unfortunately they’re basically a bowl of rice. As we know, rice and low-carb don’t go together. Who would’ve thought you could make a burrito bowl with spaghetti squash? It’s pretty much the coolest vegetable on earth.  Half a spaghetti squash filled with all the yumminess of a burrito…genius! This recipe contains beans and corn (which are higher in carbs), so feel free to leave it out.

6. Blackened Mahi Lettuce Tacos with Cajun Remoulade

These fish tacos are a copy-cat recipe from a resort in the Florida Keys (where I worked at for 6 months). It. Is. BOMB.

7. Mini Pepper Nachos

Mini Pepper Nachos

Nachos are heaven-sent. We can’t watch Family Guy (one of our favorite shows) without a freshly baked tray of hot and cheesy nachos! Mmmmm I’m literally drooling right now. Mini Pepper Nachos are a brilliant idea, especially if you LOVE peppers like Cody does.

8. Baked Spicy Mexican Eggs with Chunky Guacamole

Mexican eggs. I don’t need to say more with this one.

9. Ground Beef Lettuce Wrap with Cilantro

Lettuce wraps are genius, and these ones with Mexican-flavored ground beef, black olives and salsa are finger-licking good.

10. Cheesy Chicken Stuffed Poblanos
