Who decided tacos were only designated for Tuesday’s? Because I’d like to explain to them that tacos are welcomed and invited every day in my house! AMIRIGHT?

 

 

This recipe is so easy that I almost didn’t write it up because it didn’t seem “blog worthy”. But then I thought, Anna, every taco recipe is blog worthy! Duh!

But really, y’all, this recipe couldn’t be any easier! You can make it in the Crock-Pot (RIP Jack) or Instant Pot, whatever floats your boat!

I like to serve this chicken “Chipotle style” with my Mexican Cauliflower Rice, queso, guacamole, and salsa. But it’s just as good in a cheese shell, with a fork, or wrapped in some low carb tortillas!

  • Hi there! I have tried your crack chicken and it was so good! I want to try this chicken taco recipe, but what about the tortilla? Are we allowed to have corn tortillas on the keto? Also on the crack chicken picture, it shows it iwhat looks like a flour tortilla…is it something else? I wasn’t sure how to serve the crack chicken with nothing to put it on lol

    • Corn tortillas would not be appropriate for a ketogenic diet because they are very high in carbs. If you really want a tortilla substitute, most brands have low carb options that are in the 5-7g net carb range. Just check your local store. As for crack chicken, we don’t put it in anything and just eat it with a fork. 🙂
