We’ve all been there. We head into a Mexican Restaurant and stop dead in our tracks. Panic sets in and you realize you aren’t sure what you can order. Have no fear you can enjoy Low Carb Mexican dishes at home and out with friends!
What can I get at Mexican restaurant on keto?
Have no fear. If you happen to be out at your favorite Mexican restaurant and new to the keto or a low carb diet, there’s still great options that you can enjoy. Are you missing the tortilla chips and salsa? Ask for raw veggies and queso instead!
Consider these Mexican dishes:
- burrito bowl with lettuce (skip the rice and beans)
- grilled chicken, shrimp and steak
- carne asada
- chimichanga (skip the burrito)
- taco salad (if served in a tortilla shell, leave it!)
- tortilla soup
- lettuce tacos
- chicken or steak fajitas (skip the taco shells, rice and beans)
Should you be wanting a margarita, ask your server if they can do a margarita with no sweet and sour mix. You can also do tequila with a splash of sprite.
