Keto Pork Rind “Tacos”

 Now I would not recommend eating these EVERY Taco Tuesday but they are a tasty treat! They are not beautiful tacos but what they lack in looks they make up for in flavor. These shells are made out of eggs, cream cheese, and pork rinds with .3 carbs per shell! We used these with some left over Ropa Vieja and it made a great dinner! The shells have more of a chalupa consistency and are best served flat with a fork and a knife 😜

Here is what you will need:

  • 8 Ounces Of Cream Cheese
  • 8 Eggs
  • 4 Ounces Of Pork Rinds 
  • 1/3 Cup Of Water
  • 2 Tablespoons Of Cumin
  • 2 Table Spoons Of Paprika

Step 1: Put the pork rinds into a food processor, or Bledtec, and blend until the pork rinds are a fine powder. 

Step 2: Add the eggs, water, cream cheese, paprika, and cumin. Blend until a smooth batter is created.

Step 3: In a hot pan, lined with coconut oil, drop in 1/3 cup of batter and use a plastic spatula to spread into a 6 inch circle. (Now mine were not very circle like, so we just had abstract shells). 

Step 4: Once the bottom is browned, should take about 3-4 minutes, flip it over and brown the other side. 

Now I’m not really sure where the shape went wrong but it did add to it breaking apart when being stuffed like a taco. We ended up just eating them like a tostada and they were equally delicious! 

This should make about 12 shells. Each shell has 209 Calories, 17 Grams Of Fat, 14 Grams Of Protein, and 0.3 Net Carbs. 

If using the Ropa Vieja Meat with Pepperjack Cheese, Lettuce, and Tomatoes, each Taco will have about 513 Calories, 40 Grams Of Fat, 24 Grams Of Protein, and 1.3 Net Carbs. 

We paired our Keto “Tacos” with Bacon Wrapped Chorizo Jalapeños and it made for a very filling dinner.

    These should be renamed……..taco pancakes!!!! They are like very thick tortillas. They aren’t awful but will definitely be looking for a better crispy taco shell.
