Ten Low-Carb Mexican Food Favorites
I love Mexican food and here are my picks for Ten Low-Carb Mexican Food Favorites, plus a few honorable mentions as well. All these recipes will be a hit when you’re craving Mexican food but don’t want the carbs.
I always use any excuse there is to go out to my favorite Mexican restaurant with friends! But if you really like Mexican food (like I do!) why not have it for dinner regularly? And if you’d like to keep it low in carbs, this post has Ten Low-Carb Mexican Food Favorites. All of these are Mexican-inspired dishes I’ve made many times, and these are the Mexican food dinners I never get tired of!
Some of my favorite Mexican food dishes are higher in carbs than others, but they’re all much, much lower-carb than the Mexican food you’d get in a restaurant. And many of my favorites are also gluten-free, (Use gluten-free ingredients when specified. The recipes with low-carb tortillas are not gluten-free.) I also think these recipes are pretty family-friendly, although some things might be a bit spicy for kids. But hopefully you can find something in this collection of faves that your family will like; enjoy!

Twice-Cooked Chicken with Green Chiles and Cheese is a recipe that’s loaded with flavor from chicken, green chiles, and cheese, and this is definitely a favorite!
Spicy Shredded Beef Street Tacos make the spicy beef in the Instant Pot and use the Low-Carb Tortillas I love so much in a street taco size, but you can also eat this tasty beef in lettuce wraps or just make regular tacos if you prefer.
Use your slow cooker or Instant Pot to make green chile shredded beef and then make yourself a Green Chile Shredded Beef Cabbage Bowl. This is a dinner I’d love any time of year!
Instant Pot Chicken Tortilla Soup uses strips of low-carb tortillas, or you can skip tortillas for a gluten-free version and just serve with some cheese and sour cream; yum!
Cheesy Low-Carb Taco Casserole has been a huge hit on the blog, and this would be a great idea for a Taco Tuesday dinner. The casserole uses cauliflower rice, but the kids will never guess it’s in there, and I bet the whole family will love this for dinner!
Spicy Shredded Chicken Lettuce Wrap Tacos can be made in the Instant Pot or the Slow Cooker, and these are so delicious with the avocado salsa! You can serve the chicken in regular tortillas for some family members if you prefer.
There’s no doubt that these amazing Fish Taco Cabbage Bowls will always be one of my favorite meals with Mexican flavors. If you like fish tacos, you’ll love this recipe.
As long as you choose large Poblano peppers, Stuffed Poblanos with Ground Turkey are really not that hard to make, and these are so tasty!
Instant Pot Salsa Chicken also has the link for a slow cooker version, and this tasty chicken has been hugely popular on the blog!
I have to finish out my list of favorite Mexican Food recipes with this Green Chile and Chicken Mock Enchilada Casserole that’s been such a hit on the site! I think almost all the young moms in my extended family make this one. This is a bit higher in carbs than some of the others here, but try it if you feel like a treat!
