April 7, 2021

From tacos to quesadillas, here are ten low carb and keto-friendly recipes to accent your weekly menu! Cutting carbs doesn’t have to mean cutting out flavor or taste - because these low carb dinners deliver on both.

Cuban Press

Make your own cafe-worthy Cuban Press paninis in under ten minutes using the Carb Balance Soft Taco Flour Tortillas. Spread each tortilla with mustard and cover with deli ham, swiss cheese, pulled pork, and pickle slices. Roll and grill for a melty and delicious keto-friendly meal!

Roasted Chicken Tacos

Roasted Chicken Tacos also use Carb Balance Soft Taco Tortillas and add the bright flavors of lime and pomegranate as a finishing touch! Season your chicken with chili powder and salt before grilling, then cut into cubes. For full flavor in every bite, spread your mashed avocado on the tortillas before sprinkling on jalapeño, chicken, and pomegranate.

Chicken Avocado Ranch Wraps

Another Carb Balance Soft Taco Tortilla favorite are these Chicken Avocado Ranch Wraps filled with baked chicken, avocado, and tomato. The key in this recipe is to season the chicken with paprika and make your own ranch from Greek yogurt with fresh chives and dill.

Jamaican Jerk Chicken Tacos

Carb Balance Soft Taco Whole Wheat Tortillas make Jamaican Jerk Chicken the low carb meal of the week! Make things easy by using a rotisserie chicken and adding Jamaican jerk seasoning and the juice of half a lime to the shredded meat. To top your tacos, dice tomatoes, pineapple, cilantro, jalapeño, and red onion and combine with another squeeze of lime juice and salt. Garnish with cabbage and cheese.

Chipotle Cheesy Chicken Enchiladas

The cream cheese plus quesadilla cheese make these chicken enchiladas smooth and creamy, but the diced green chilis and chipotle peppers give them a kick! Divide the filling between a pack of Mission Carb Balance Soft Taco Flour Tortillas, roll tightly, and place them all in a baking dish. Smother with green enchilada sauce and cheese, and bake for ten minutes - this delicious, carb-friendly recipe is great for a quick weeknight meal.

Buffalo Chicken Tortilla Pizza

Carb Balance Burrito Whole Wheat Tortillas form the base of these sweet and spicy personal pizzas. Simply combine shredded rotisserie chicken with your favorite Buffalo wing sauce, spread your tortilla with ranch dressing, and top with chicken, mozzarella, and blue cheese. Add a couple tablespoons each of red onion and celery for that wing-night feel, then pop them in the oven for 7-10 minutes. Voila! You’ve got a low carb pizza and wing night all in one!

Easy Low Carb Italian Chicken Wraps

These wraps are exactly as promised: an easy, carb-friendly Italian chicken meal. But what makes them special is the crumbled croutons inside and the pinch of fresh parsley or basil to suit your taste. Start with Carb Balance Soft Taco Whole Wheat Tortillas, then spread with mayo and sprinkle with parmesan. Next, layer with lettuce, tomato, avocado, and grilled chicken. Finally, drizzle with Italian dressing and top with crushed croutons for crunch and fresh herbs for extra flavor!

Coconut Butter Chicken Wrap

Thank goodness our chefs thought to combine chicken and almond butter for this Indian-inspired low carb recipe.

Topped with cauliflower rice and wrapped in Carb Balance Whole Wheat Tortillas, these wraps are a great, keto-friendly choice.
