Taco Tuesday comes around so fast these days! I love having a few good low-carb Mexican style dishes up my sleeve for those nights when you want something quick, easy and that the whole family will love. Tacos or burritos are high up there on my kids’ favorite meal list so we often have them once a week. This Low-Carb Taco Burrito Bowl will be ready in under 30 minutes and has only 10g of net carbs.

When The Rest Of Your Family Like Their Carbs…

Burritos or tacos are an excellent choice if the rest of your family eat carbs. These are easy to tailor to everyone’s tastes as you can serve everything in bowls at the table for self-service:

  • taco meat sauce Diced tomatoes
  • warmed taco shells (for the carb eaters)
  • tomato
  • avocado
  • lettuce
  • sour cream
  • jalapeno chilies etc.

 

 

 

These self-serve meals are a real winner with the kids. They love serving themselves and feeling like they have control over their meal.

For the low-carbers, just make yourself a Low-Carb Taco Burrito Bowl and ignore those taco shells.

If you really want a taco shell, try making a low-carb version from cheese. Click here to find out how.

How To Make Low-Carb Burritos

For burritos, grab some low-carb tortillas and fill with the taco meat sauce and other goodies. If you are looking to keep your meal very low carb (under 10g) you will need to reduce the sour cream and avocado serving size to bring the carbs down.

 

 

 

Have Dinner Ready in 10 Minutes…

Make up an extra batch of the taco meat sauce and freeze. Defrost, reheat in the microwave or stovetop and prep your vegetables etc and dinner is served!

I also like to freeze the sauce in smaller portions for kids only sized servings.
