Going keto doesn’t mean giving up tortillas—or tortilla chips!
If you love Mexican food, you may wonder what you can use as a wrap for taco, fajita and burrito fillings when doing a low-carb diet. You’ll be happy to know that there are plenty of easy keto tortilla recipes to make at home, as well as some pre-made options. These simple homemade tortillas and keto tortilla chips are perfect for all your Mexican dishes!
Homemade Keto Tortillas
When making your own tortillas, there’s a variety of keto-friendly ingredients you can use. Many are made with almond flour, coconut flour, flax, psyllium, chia seeds, cheese, vegetables, or a combination.
The easiest way to flatten out the dough is to use a cast iron tortilla press that can quickly turn a ball of dough into a thin flat circle. But if you don’t want to invest in a press, a simple rolling pin works too.
Once the dough has been pressed, it’s pan-fried to brown each side of the tortilla. This typically takes about 2-3 minutes per side.

Store-Bought Low-Carb Tortillas
When it comes to store-bought keto tortillas, one thing to keep in mind is that most pre-made keto options for tortillas are not gluten-free. They typically contain whole wheat flour and wheat gluten. But there are a couple of exceptions such as coconut wraps, cheese wraps and thin cauliflower-based wraps.
It’s always best to make your own tortillas because they are less expensive and can be made easily at home. However, store-bought ones are great for convenience if you don’t have the time to make your own.
Ways To Use Keto Tortillas
In addition to tacos, burritos and fajitas, these flatbread wraps are perfect for quesadillas, chips and even for layering into hamburger casserole recipes. You can even use them as wraps to make easy low-carb sandwiches for breakfast and lunch.
The next time you’re looking for an easy keto meal idea, grab a few tortillas and add in your favorite meat and veggies for a quick wrap. You’ll also want to stash extra in the freezer for later.
How Long Do Keto Tortillas Last in the Freezer?
