Who doesn't love wrapping up delicious foods in tasty, pillow-y soft, wonderful tortillas? That's why I had to find a way to make a low-carb version.
Friends, may I present: the last recipe you'll ever need for Keto tortillas! They're simple to make, and they use less than 10 ingredients. How great is that?
Now that I always have a batch on hand, I never run out of uses for them! Even when I'm rushing around during the day, I can always find something to throw in a tortilla for a quick, low-carb lunch.
And not only are these tortillas low carb, but they're also dairy free and gluten free. With this terrific and healthy option, you can celebrate Taco Tuesday ANY day of the week!
How Many Carbs Are In Tortillas?
Tortillas come in a wide range of sizes and can include lots of different ingredients. This combination is what will determine the net carbs.
For example, a Mission soft taco flour tortilla is going to have 26 grams of carbohydrates and 1 gram of fiber, or 25 net carbs. If you're following a Keto way of eating, that's probably close to your daily carb limit from one food.
Mission corn tortillas are smaller than the flour tortillas, so each serving includes two tortillas. These will give us 20 grams of carbs and 3 grams of fiber for a total of 17 net carbs. Slightly better than the flour, but still not great.
Now, let's look at these Keto tortillas. Thanks to the low-carb ingredients, these beauties come out to only 2 net carbs per tortilla! So you can enjoy a taco or three without a care in the world.
Can You Buy Keto-Friendly Tortillas?
The good news is that you can find more and more low-carb options at the grocery store these days. The bad news is that you don't always know what ingredients they're using.
Even if a brand advertises itself as "low-carb" or "Keto-friendly," always make sure to check the label. If the net carb count is within your limit, you're probably okay.
Personally, I just prefer to make my own. They're quick, the recipe is so easy to make, and I know exactly what ingredients are going in them. No unwanted fillers here!
What To Serve With Low-Carb Tortillas
Besides everything? If you ask me, pretty much all foods are better in a tortilla!
One of my absolute favorites is my Keto enchiladas. Shredded chicken rolled in a fluffy tortilla and then smothered with a rich, homemade enchilada sauce and baked to perfection... seriously, that dish is hard to top.
They're also great for a good ole fashioned taco night. You can use tasty crock-pot chicken as the filling, then add your favorite toppings and dig in.
Craving something extra cheesy? My friend, there is nothing wrong with a simple quesadilla. Spread cheese on half your tortilla, fold it over, then fry on both sides. Yum.
You can also use homemade tortillas to whip up some crispy Keto-friendly chips! Cut the cooked tortillas into triangles, then either fry in a pan or brush with oil and roast in the oven. Serve with my one minute Keto guacamole or your favorite salsa!
Remember earlier when I said I never seem to run out of uses for Keto-friendly tortillas? Now you can see what I mean!
How To Store Keto Tortillas
I recommend placing any leftover tortillas in an airtight container in the refrigerator. They'll stay fresh for about five days.
If the tortillas are too stiff when you go to use them, place them in the microwave to warm them up before use. I usually do this anyway because I like my tortillas warm!
How To Make Keto Tortillas
Add the almond flour, coconut flour, xanthan gum, salt, and baking powder to a mixing bowl. Stir to combine.
Add the egg, water, and apple cider vinegar to the mixing bowl with the dry ingredients.
Beat until the ingredients are well combined and form a dry dough.
Separate the dough into 6 even portions.
Spray two pieces of parchment paper with cooking spray, then roll each portion of dough out between the paper until very thin.
Use a bowl to cut each piece of dough into a small circle, about 4-5 inches across.
One at a time, place the tortillas in a skillet over medium heat. Cook for 1-2 minutes on each side until lightly browned but still pliable.
