This roasted chicken, sometimes called a "Roadside Chicken" in Mexico is the perfect star of the meal. And, it does double duty because you can use leftovers to make a lot of the following recipes. Think tacos, burritos, or even low carb flautas...which is a bit further down in this very list.
Talk about easy peasy! Fish tacos is one of the easiest Mexican Foods there is. It takes about 15 minutes to make this recipe from start to finish.
Make sure you have some low carb tortillas on hand. The whole family (Low carb or not) will love this recipe.
I can't believe how many times I have heard people say "I've never tried Albondigas". It's an amazing flavorful soup and if you try this it just might become on of your favorites.
Plus, there's a story after the recipe on this post that involves a goat standing in the middle of a dining room table if you like that kind of thing...
Crispy isn't the way that people usually describe low carb meals. But this Mexican Recipe has plenty of crunch. If you miss flautas and taquitos that aren't made with cheesy shells, you're going flip. Plus, it's easier than you think to pull this recipe off.
This is the quintessential set and forget Keto Mexican Recipe. Make it for breakfast, an easy lunch or even for dinner. It keeps well and makes an easy portable lunch for long days at the office.
There are so many fantastic flavors in this dip that you could just eat it with a spoon. Or with veggies, low carb chips and Mr. Tortilla. This family approved layered dip is also perfect for pot-lucks too. (We just might get to do those again soon). So book mark this recipe.
While this isn't technically a "Keto Mexican Recipe", I still think it qualifies. Coloradoans are intensely proud of their green chili. Recipes like this have been guarded for generations.
But I don't believe in that whole "secret recipe" nonsense. Great food is for sharing and this one is fabulous.
If you love "secret Recipes", check out this favorite Low Carb Petty Aunt Pie. It was once one of those "guarded" family secrets too. I recreated it to be lower carb and just as tasty.
This Keto Mexican Recipe is one of our most sought after recipes for celebrations like Christmas and birthdays. They are delicious and require a couple of special ingredients. So read the post and have the secret ingredient on hand for when the urge strikes.
The crock pot is the simplest of ways to make tender, shredded meat for an authentic tasting taco night.
Is this recipe authentic Mexican fare? Nope. It's an Americanized dish that appeals to picky kids and adults alike.
Tinga sauce is the real deal. This is the taste of old Mexico that will make you forget you've gone Keto.
Frijoles Borrachos are possible if you use a special bean, a black soybean that is. If you miss drunken beans or beans in general you'll love this recipe.
That's right. Keto refried beans exist! The high fiber is a huge benefit to low carb eaters but the taste is good enough that you'll forget how healthy this recipe really is.
I hate cauliflower! But I love this Spanish Cauliflower rice. The spices and special method of cooking drowns out "that" taste. So, it's a win/win.
I used to feel guilty for even calling this easy method of making tortilla chips a "recipe". But it'll save you a lot of money on pre-made Keto snacks so I've gotten over it.
While this drink is technically of Cuban decent, I think this fantastic Keto Cocktail needs to grace this list. If you can't make it to the beach, take this out to the pool and you'll practically be able to smell the sea-spray.
Classic, cold and refreshing. Make it whipped or on the rocks. This drink goes with any of the other recipes on this list like it was made especially for them.
🌶️Condiments & Sauces
If your thinking, meh "I can do without pickled onions". You just dont know what your missing. Try them once and you'll crave their amazing crispy, tanginess forevermore.
Apparently I thought everyone knew exactly what Pico de Gallo was when I wrote this recipe. I didn't even give it a description.
What is it? A spicy fresh salsa made with incredibly healthy ingredients. It's a staple. It's a masterpiece and so versatile that you can change it up with whatever you like. For instance: add fresh avocados and boom, you'll have Avocado salsa. Add berries BOOM, it's tropical. You get the idea.
This final Keto Mexican Recipe is perfect for the grill. Whether you soak shrimp, steak or chicken in this easy marinade, you'll have the makings of a fiesta!
