Keto-Friendly Street Taco Recipe


For the Carne Asada:

  • 1.5 lbs flank steak or skirt steak
  • 1/4 cup olive oil
  • Juice of 2 limes
  • 3 cloves garlic, minced
  • 1/2 cup cilantro, chopped
  • 1/2 teaspoon ground cumin
  • 1/2 teaspoon chili powder
  • Salt and pepper, to taste

For the Keto Tortillas:

  • 1 cup almond flour
  • 1/4 cup coconut flour
  • 1/2 teaspoon xanthan gum
  • 1/2 teaspoon baking powder
  • 1/4 teaspoon salt
  • 2 large eggs
  • 1 tablespoon water


  • 1 small red onion, thinly sliced
  • 1/2 cup chopped fresh cilantro
  • 1 avocado, peeled, pitted, and sliced
  • 1 lime, cut into wedges
  • Optional: salsa, sour cream, or crumbled cotija cheese


Prepare the Carne Asada:

  1. In a medium-sized mixing bowl, whisk together olive oil, lime juice, minced garlic, chopped cilantro, ground cumin, chili powder, salt, and pepper.
  2. Place the flank steak in a large Ziploc bag or shallow dish, then pour the marinade over the steak. Make sure the steak is well-coated, then marinate for at least 30 minutes or up to 4 hours in the refrigerator.
  3. Preheat a grill or grill pan over medium-high heat. Remove the steak from the marinade and allow any excess to drip off. Grill the steak for 5-7 minutes per side, or until it reaches your desired level of doneness.
  4. Remove the steak from the grill and let it rest for about 5 minutes. Then, slice it against the grain into thin strips.

Prepare the Keto Tortillas:

  1. In a large mixing bowl, combine almond flour, coconut flour, xanthan gum, baking powder, and salt.
  2. Stir in the eggs and water, then mix until a dough forms. If the dough is too sticky, add a little more almond flour.
  3. Divide the dough into 8 equal portions and roll each portion into a ball.
  4. Place a ball of dough between two sheets of parchment paper and press it with a tortilla press or roll it with a rolling pin until it's about 1/8-inch thick.
  5. Heat a non-stick skillet over medium heat. Remove the top sheet of parchment paper and gently flip the tortilla onto the skillet. Cook for about 1-2 minutes per side or until lightly browned.
  6. Repeat with the remaining dough balls.

Assemble the Keto Carne Asada Street Tacos:

  1. Place a few slices of carne asada on each keto tortilla.
  2. Top with sliced red onion, chopped cilantro, and avocado slices.
  3. Serve with lime wedges and optional toppings such as salsa, sour cream, or crumbled cotija cheese.
