Today we are discussing low-carb Mexican food options when you are dining out or eating at home.

You might think that one of the downsides to eating low carb is you can never eat Mexican food again.

Now when we talk about Mexican food the first things that come to mind are tortillas, tacos, Mexican rice, and beans.

Well, the Mexican kitchen has a lot of meats and fish dishes with vegetables and sauces. These are all things that you can eat when low carb.

Appetizers

When ordering appetizers when dining out forget about those tortilla chips or nachos. These are all fried corn which doesn’t fit keto and have a high carb count.

If you are not dining out you can eat tortilla chips as long as you make them from almond tortillas and bake them in the oven.

Taste just as good but low carb.

Guacamole

One of the best dips you can choose when on a low carb diet. Only 3 grams of carbs.

Instead of tortilla chips, you can ask for cucumber sticks, celery or even sliced peppers. They are great to dip with.

You can also eat this with carrots but in moderation, because carrots have 6-gram carbs and 3 grams sugar which is high for a vegetable.

Salsa

Look for some roasted tomato salsa and ask for some veggies to use it as your dip. A great way to start your dinner.

Avoid those black bean salsa because anything beans and low-carb do not go together well. 

Roasted tomato salsa is an easy spicy vegan salsa dip. Great with tortilla chips, nachos, falafel and tortilla on a salad or anything that needs a kick. Video included #thetortillachannel #video #tomatosalsa #salsa #spicysalsa #ovenroastedtomatosalsa #salsadip

Salad

You can select a salad as a starter. Again be careful with the carrots but lettuce, cucumber, tomato, spinach, asparagus, and peppers are great in a salad.

Choose a salad dressing that is low in sugar. If served a caesar dressing is a good option or that tomato roasted salsa is also great as a dressing.

Pico de gallo

Another great dip to choose when dining out. Use sliced tomato as your tortilla chip substitute and you have a great starter.

Pico de gallo a Mexican salsa that is also know as salsa Mexicana, salsa fresca or salsa cruda. It is fresh a bit chuncky and tasty. Great with tortilla chips or on your tacos.

Albondigas

If you can find albondigas or albondigas soup you have found a good starter. Ask if the albondigas meatballs are made with rice because that can be hidden.

If they contain rice ask if you can get the soup without the meatballs when you are in the ketosis phase or substitute for some grilled chicken.

Main dishes

Opposed to Tex-Mex restaurant you should find good meat, chicken or fish recipes.

If they are served wrapped in tortillas ask to get these separate or if you can get it as a burrito, enchilada or taco bowl so without the rice and tortillas

If you make your own keto tortillas why not wrap a couple in some aluminum foil and ask if the restaurant can warm them so you can eat them with your main course

Grilled meats

Carne aside (grilled Mexican steak), steak chimichurri or grilled chicken are great to eat when on the keto diet.

Because most meats have zero carbs so perfect when you are eating low carb. When you add a sauce think about chimichurri or a roasted tomato salsa without sugar.

Ask for a salad with some salsa and roasted veggies.

Fish or seafood

Grilled fish either on the barbecue or under the grill is a great main course. Like dorade, cod, salmon or tilapia are great to eat grilled.

Ask for some sautéed vegetables and you have a great dinner.

Fajitas

Fajitas are great to eat when eating low carb. Take your own keto tortillas with you or skip the tortillas all together.

Ask for some extra sautéed vegetables to complete the meal.

Desserts

If you love desserts I’m afraid I have bad news because low carb and Mexican desserts do not mix well.

If you choose tres leches, churros or flan you easily consume 40 to 50 grams of carbs.

Choose a coffee or a cup of tea.

Conclusion

Not all is lost when you want to eat low carb Mexican food and you are on the Low carb or keto diet.

Choose wisely and forget about the nachos, rice, and tortillas that normally accompany Mexican dishes.

Take your own low carb tortillas with you and ask if these can be warmed and served with your main dish. That way you still get to eat tortillas but not with high carbs.
