You can make a Mexican omelette that is full of protein, healthy fats, and low-carb vegetables in just a few steps. This is a great example of how quick and delicious easy keto recipes can be!
Stuff an omelette with tomatoes, cilantro, onion and cheese. Spice it up with cumin, jalapeno and garlic.
Take it to the next level with a topping of guacamole and sour cream. With these simple steps you’ll be eating a complete breakfast, inspired by a classic Mexican burrito!
This recipe is naturally low carb and great for a keto diet.
Love Mexican food?
Me too! This isn’t exactly a burrito, but we come close! I like this wheat-free, bean-free dish better because I feel nourished, my taste buds are satisfied and I have great energy from the healthy fats and easy to digest eggs and veggies. I stuffed all my favorite fillings in this 3 egg omelette (recipe below).
With a final flourish, you can top meats or fish with Tomatillo Avocado Salsa… yumm!
One of my go-to lunches is ground beef cooked in infused turmeric oil (see The Ketogenic Edge Cookbook for the recipe). Pile the meat in a bowl and top with chopped tomato and a few spoonfuls of guacamole or diced avocado. Use salad greens, if you like. The meat could also be added into this omelette to make a bigger meal with more protein and fats. A bigger meal might suit you if you are intermittent fasting or just eating two meals a day.
