Tips and Tricks:

  1. For added flavor, consider marinating the chicken in the taco seasoning and lime juice for a longer period before cooking.

  2. Customize your tacos by adding your favorite toppings such as salsa, guacamole, or chopped cilantro.

  3. If you prefer a healthier option, you can bake the tacos in the oven instead of frying them. Simply brush the assembled tacos with oil and bake at 375°F (190°C) for about 10-12 minutes or until crispy.

Crispy Low-Carb Tacos



  • 1 large chicken breast, chopped small

  • 1 small onion, chopped

  • 5 cloves of garlic, chopped

  • Juice of 1 lime

  • 1 tablespoons of taco seasoning

  • Guerrero Carb Watch flour tortillas

  • 1 to 2 cups of vegetable or avocado oil (for frying)

  • Lettuce, tomato, cheese, and avocado (for taco fillings)

  • Crema (for topping)



  • Heat a skillet over medium heat and add a drizzle of oil.

  • Add the chopped chicken, onions, and garlic to the skillet.

  • Saute until the chicken is browned and golden, and the onions are translucent.

  • Sprinkle the taco seasoning evenly over the chicken mixture.

  • Squeeze the juice of one lime over the seasoned chicken.

  • Stir well to ensure the seasoning is evenly distributed.

  • Allow the chicken to marinate in the seasoning for 5-6 minutes, allowing the flavors to meld together.

  • Continue cooking until the chicken is cooked through and tender.

  • Heat another pan with high sides and add vegetable or avocado oil.

  • Using tongs, carefully fold the tacos into a taco shape, securing the filling inside.

  • Gently place the folded tacos into the hot oil.The ideal temperature for deep frying is typically between 350°F (175°C) and 375°F (190°C). This temperature range allows the food to cook evenly and develop a crispy exterior while ensuring that the inside is cooked through. It’s important to maintain a consistent temperature throughout the frying process to achieve the best results. Using a deep-fry thermometer can help you accurately monitor the oil temperature and adjust the heat as needed.

  • Fry for about 5 minutes on each side, or until the tacos become golden and crispy.

  • Once the tacos are golden and crispy, remove them from the oil using tongs.

  • Drain any excess oil by placing the tacos on paper towels.

  • Repeat the frying process for the remaining tacos.

  • Now it’s time to build your tacos! Fill each crispy taco shell with the chicken mixture, cheese, lettuce, tomato, avocado, and any other desired fillings.

  • Top with a dollop of crema for a creamy finishing touch.
