Tacos! That are delicious, Keto AND Whole30 friendly!

These Whole30 + Keto Cilantro Lime Chicken Tacos are such a simple and satisfying dinner combining 2 of my favorite Mexican inspired dishes: my cilantro lime chicken thighs and my spicy Mexican coleslaw. Plus, my newest favorite low carb and Whole30 friendly taco wrap.

Whole30 + Keto Cilantro Lime Chicken Tacos

One of the best part of tacos is setting up the taco bar. I love a super simple taco.

For these tacos, I’ll roast up a batch of my cilantro lime chicken thighs that I chop up, a bowl of my spicy Mexican coleslaw, some chopped white onion, chopped cilantro, sliced jalapeños and wedges of fresh lime.

Best Keto Taco Wraps

I have a new favorite Whole30 + keto friendly taco wrap! The jicama wraps from Trader Joe’s! (Not sponsored, just sharing what I love!) They’re the perfect size, have a very neutral flavor so all you taste is the taco, and a slight crunch that make it feel like a crispy shell taco. Best part? Each jicama wrap is only .5g net carbs! The jicama wraps are in the refrigerated section by the prepped veggies at my Trader Joe’s.

Another great option is butter lettuce or romaine lettuce leaves. Both are very Whole30 + Keto friendly, and available at any grocery store.

You could also use a low carb tortilla. Trader Joe’s makes one, as does Mission. I personally don’t love these for tacos. They have a pretty strong “whole wheat” flavor that doesn’t really go with taco for me. I taste the tortilla way more than the taco filling. I like these low carb tortillas for quesadillas or a turkey lunch wrap much more, where I don’t mind the flavor of a whole wheat wrap.

Notes

Low Carb Taco Wrap Options: My favorite taco wrap is the jicama wraps from Trader Joe’s. These are Whole30 friendly too! They’re in the refrigerated section next to the chopped veggies at my Trader Joe’s. Butter lettuce and romaine lettuce are always great keto + Whole30 friendly options too. You can also use low carb tortillas, Trader Joe’s and Mission have their own versions, but these are not Whole30 friendly.

Coleslaw: My spicy Mexican coleslaw is delicious, Whole30 + keto friendly! If you want an even easier option, you could get a bag of coleslaw mix and the Cilantro Salad Dressing from Trader Joe’s (with the refrigerated dressings). Such an easy coleslaw! (The salad dressing is not Whole30 friendly)

Nutrition Facts: The nutritional information is calculated based on the exact ingredients and quantities listed in the Ingredients above. For this nutrition info, I am calculating for 3 tacos using the jicama wraps. It is provided as a courtesy only and should be construed as an estimate rather than a guarantee. Ingredients can vary, especially if you make recipe substitutions. Always best to go off your own calculations based on the ingredients and measurements you use.
