You’ve met our 15-minute keto tortillas already right?! Well, naturally they make the most awesome gluten free and keto beef burritos! Easy, delicious, a meal-prep ideal and with a filling that can be used for all your keto Mexican dreams (tacos, enchiladas, nachos etc!).
Heat up oil in a skillet over medium heat. Add in garlic, onion, bacon (optional) and cook, stirring often, until the onion begins to caramelize (7-10 minutes). Add in the ground beef with the taco spices, and continue to cook until the beef is cooked through. If your beef feels dry (usually a lean variety), feel free to add a couple tablespoons of water to keep it nice and moist.
For the keto tortillas
Make a batch of our keto tortillas. Divide the dough in three and roll out as thinly as possible between two sheets of parchment paper, trimming the edges as needed.
Heat up a skillet (preferably) or pan over medium heat. You can test the heat by sprinkling a few water droplets, if the drops evaporate immediately your pan is too hot. The droplets should ‘run’ through the skillet.
Transfer to skillet and cook over medium heat for just 3-6 seconds (very important). Flip it over immediately (using a thin spatula or knife), and continue to cook until just lightly golden on each side (though with the traditional charred marks). The key is not to overcook them, as they will no longer be pliable.
Keep them warm wrapped in kitchen cloth until serving. To rewarm, heat briefly on both sides, until just warm (less than a minute).
To assemble the burritos
Burritos are a personal affair, so you can do your own thing here. For instance, either add the guacamole and crema in the filling or use them for dipping!
Spread a generous helping of guacamole or salsa over your keto tortilla. Pile on slightly cooled beef, jalapeños, crema, queso, onion... fold in the edges, roll up tightly and wrap in foil (or just enjoy right away!).
If making freezable burritos, just be sure to include only freezable-friendly fillings (i.e. no crema, avocado etc).
*This is enough filling for roughly 6-8 burritos, but do whip up the whole batch and freeze as needed! Totally worth it. **I'm personally not the biggest cumin fan so I add it sparingly (1/4 tsp), but if it's your thing you can add up to 1 tsp if that's your thing. Please note that nutrition facts were estimated for the large tortilla wrap only (assuming a batch of 8 taco tortillas yields 3 burrito wraps). Nutrition values for the filling will vary a lot depending on quantities, amounts, etc (but on average, they won't be more than 1-3g net carbs).
