Delicious Soft Tacos for Taco Tuesdays with Fresh Pico

 

Taco on a low carb keto diet? You bet! I wouldn't go with out some good Mexican flavory tacos in my life.

🎵"If you like Cinco de Mayo, so you  c'n eat tacos all day. If you're not into carbs, and you have half a brain. If you like taking walks at midnight ..." 🎵 I know, in another life I was weird al with food lyrics haha.

There is no way I'm missing Taco Tuesdays just because I'm on a low carb keto diet. I love Mexican foods and flavors. Any taco can easily be converted to a low carb - keto taco by replacing the taco shell with your favorite lettuce. I used romaine hearts but a butter lettuce taco shell would be really good too.

Do you make tacos for Taco Tuesday? These turned out so good. You're going to love them and so will your family.

Prepare a batch of fresh Pico de Gallo. Chop avocado into large chunks. Break off large pieces of lettuce for your taco shell.

Avocados are rich in good fats and essential nutrients. They also happen to be one of my favorite foods. This simple Avocado Party Dip, which is basically another kind of guacamole recipe, will be the rave of our party. It's soooo addicting so be sure to make extra. You might even want to make a batch for yourself.  

More guacaole recipes coming soon... until then enjoy this creamy dip!

  • 2 Large Haas Avocados
  • 1/2 sour cream
  • 1 lime
  • 1 teaspoon garlic powder
  • 1/2 teaspoon red pepper
  • 1 teaspoon dried parsley flakes
  • 1/2 teaspoon sea salt


In a small mixing bowl add all ingredients squeezing in the juice of the lime. Smash together with a fork. Top with a light sprinkling of red pepper for garnish. 

Serve with tortilla chips, veggies or potato chips. Enjoy!

Note: The lime keeps the avocado from turning brown. I left mine out for a good hour to test it and it works quite nicely.
