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.
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!
I’m a massive breakfast fan, and who wouldn’t want Mexican for breakfast? Fajita Frittata? Yes please!
Chicken tacos are my very favorite, or as I like to call them – “Tikken Chacos”. This soup is literally my favorite soup EVER.
Pizza and Mexican in the same meal? Is this the real life? Or is this just fantasy?
5. 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.
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.
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.
Mexican eggs. I don’t need to say more with this one.
Lettuce wraps are genius, and these ones with Mexican-flavored ground beef, black olives and salsa are finger-licking good.
This recipe ticks ALL the boxes. I just want to eat it right now!
If you love Mexican and you love Zucchini, this one is a quick and easy throw-together meal if you’re running short on time!
This recipe tho. Yum!
