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 Low-Carb Mexican Food Favorites. All twenty of these recipes 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 unless you use gluten-free tortillas.)
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!

I have been diagnosed with type 2 diabeties and was afraid I would have to give up some of my favorite food . Thanks to you I do not!! Thanks for the ideas, I will check back for more, they look great! Now to go grocery shopping……..
So glad my recipes are going to be helpful for you!
I love Mexican food! You have so many great sounding Mexican recipes and I plan to give many of them a try. One problem with eating Mexican food is how it makes my stomach feel after consuming—stuffy, bloated definitely not happy. I think it’s the combination of protein and carbs so I’m very excited to try your low carb style Mexican dishes. Thank you!
I really hope you enjoy them!
Thank you for all the amazing recipes!
My pleasure Gail, I hope some of them will become regulars for you!
