Creating A Low-Carb Mexican Fiesta

After I blogged about Tippy Rosa Low Carb Taco Shells the other day, I received a significant amount of feedback from my readers inquiring about other low-carb Mexican foods to serve their family an entire meal worthy of a feast.

You better believe there are more options to satisfy your desire for Mexican food on your low-carb lifestyle!

In addition to the Tippy Rosa taco shells, they also have these neat Tippy Rosa Taco Salad Bowls as well.

Made from the same great ingredients as the Tippy Rosa taco shells, these salad bowls have 5g fiber and just 8g net carbs. Fill it up with lettuce, tomatos, cheese, and, of course, seasoned beef or chicken for the perfect low-carb salad!

How about burritos? Can you have those on low-carb, too? Uh-huh! You bet your sweet bippy you can!

You can make a beef or chicken burrito using what I believe are the BEST LOW-CARB TORTILLA WRAPS ON THE MARKET TODAY -- La Tortilla Factory Whole Wheat Low-Carb Tortillas!

I use these wraps for virtually every situation I would have used sliced bread in the past, but they are absolutely essential when you are making Mexican food. With 14g fiber and 8g protein per wrap, these are chock full of healthy goodness.

Creating the ultimate low-carb burritos with these wraps is a cinch:

Cook up some of your favorite brand of ground beef or chicken and sprinkle a little Gringo Billy's Taco Seasoning in with it to give it that zesty spice to bring out the unique Mexican aroma you enjoy about this kind of food. Then arrange the cooked meat in your slightly warmed wraps, sprinkle some lettuce, tomato, cheese, and sour cream on top and fold the burrito. Mmmmmm, I'm getting hungry just thinking about it! :-D

Now that you've got your tacos, taco salad and burritos done, what would a Mexican fiesta be without starting out with some hot and fresh nachos?! For that, I turn to the leader in low-carb tortilla chips hands down -- R.W. Garcia Lo's Tortilla Chips!

You will not believe these chips are low in carbohydrates they are so incredibly good. Plus, with 5g fiber and 6g protein per serving, you will be eating healthy, too! Warm these up for just a few minutes in the oven and then dip these in your favorite nacho cheese for low-carb Mexican food heaven! Ooo la la!

Now you can enjoy a full low-carb Mexican fiesta with these excellent low-carb products. See, you can eat Mexican when you are livin' la vida low-carb. Muy bien! Hasta la vista high-carbs! Adios!

Jimmy for those who are still on induction, they can save more carbs by using about 1 ounce of shredded cheese as a "shell" for tacos. You simply heat the pan and drop the cheese in until it melts good and starts to get a little golden brown. You can then fold it into a shell and add your fillings.

I actually saw that on the Atkins forum a few months ago! =)

I love the Garcia's chips! I haven't been able to find them since moving from Indiana over a year ago.. but they are great when you are craving chips and salsa!

When our local grocery discontinued these, I was so pleased to find Garcia Flax Seed chips online.
