You probably couldn’t help but notice that I’m a huge fan of Mexican food around here, and through the years I’ve made so many tasty low-carb favorites with those flavors. And Cinco de Mayo is just one week away! There’s nothing I like more than a good excuse to eat Mexican food for a whole week, so for the occasion I’m updating my collection of Twenty-Five+ Healthy Low-Carb Mexican Food Dinners for Cinco de Mayo. I’ve divided the favorite Low-Carb Mexican Food Recipes into three categories: Low-Carb and Gluten-Free Mexican Food Dinners, Low-Carb But Not Gluten-Free Mexican Food Dinners (that use low-carb tortillas), and Carb Conscious / Low-Glycemic Mexican Food Dinners (that contain beans). Hopefully there’ll be something for everyone in this collection!

All these Mexican food dinners are favorites that I bet your family will like. And I promise I won’t tell if you decide to make one of them right away before Cinco de Mayo gets here; enjoy!

  1. Everything looks so good! Thanks for sharing 🙂

    I want to try the low-carb one first 😉

  2. Happy Anniversary…………..hard to believe it's been that many years Kalyn. Living in Arizona it is almost a sin if one does not celebrate Cinco de Mayo. Next to Christmas it is my favorite holiday.
    I must pin this post for my friends over on Pinterest. Some of these are already in my file!!

  3. Lambie, hope you enjoy!

    Thanks Barb. Glad you like it!

  4. I know it's a typo and should be Chili, but got quite a good chuckle out of the name of #6, "Spicy Green Child Mexican Casserole …"

  5. Karen, that's a good one; too bad all my typos are not that amusing! Thanks for telling me so I could fix it.

  6. Happy Anniversary!

    Thanks for posting such a wide variety of Cinco de Mayo. I have been following a gluten free, dairy free, corn free, egg free recently and appreciate that you have recipes that meet these restrictions. (Of course the other recipes are very tempting! 🙂 ) Can't wait to try a few!

  7. Thanks Amy, so glad there are recipes that will work for you.

  8. Kalyn, NINE years! Wow! I don't think I even knew about blogs back then. This is a tempting bunch of dishes!

  9. Thanks Jean! It's been a fun and eventful nine years for sure.

  10. Looking yummo! Thanks a bunch.

  11. Tammi, my pleasure. Glad you like the ideas.

  12. Thanks for the compendium of recipes. I just made the Southwestern Crock-pot roast today, and it is delicious. The chicken chile mock enchilada casserole is always a big hit here. I have added the chile relleno casserole and the sour cream chicken enchilada casserole to upcoming meal plans. Thanks for all you do, Kalyn. Your recipes always work. Alice
