Low Carb Tortillas

Tacos are the perfect food, in my humble opinion.

Carbs, hot seasoned meat, cool veggie garnishes, and of course cheese and/or sour cream… What’s not to love?

Yet what if you can’t have grains in your diet, or are sticking with a low carb meal plan? Are tacos off limits??? (God forbid.)

Although we do not follow a strict keto or low carb diet, we have plenty of friends that do, so it’s always nice to know how to accommodate them when they come over.

I was recently playing around with grain-free tortilla recipes for my daughter Ava. Her tummy doesn’t handle grains well, however, she still craves carby hand-held foods like any teenager.

After testing several recipes that avoid all her food intolerances, I decided to try making tortillas with cauliflower.

After all, you can make delicious grain-free rice and crackers with cauliflower. Why not tortillas.

Low Carb Tortilla Carbs

With the addition of cheese, eggs, and spices this Low Carb Keto Tortilla Recipe came together beautifully.

The cauliflower tortillas are flexible, yet quite sturdy. They taste utterly delicious. Yet best of all, they fit neatly into a low-carb ketogenic diet.

Our Low Carb Keto Tortilla Recipe makes warm tantalizing tortillas with the texture of corn tortillas.

They can crush any carb craving without breaking your diet!

We prefer this Low Carb Keto Tortilla Recipe fresh out of the oven, as they are the most flexible and flavorful within the first hour or two of baking.

(I find most cauliflower recipes are not great make-aheads.)

How to Make these Tortillas

  1. Preheat your oven and line your baking sheets with parchment paper.
  2. Place the roughly chopped cauliflower in the food processor and grind it until the cauliflower is the size of crumbs. 
  3. Add in the rest of the ingredients in the food processor and puree until all the ingredients create a smooth texture. 
  4. Using a cookie scoop, portion out the dough on the baking sheets allowing enough room for you to roll out the tortillas. 
  5. Cover the mounds you portioned out with wax paper and roll out the mounds into flat tortillas until they are about 4 to 4.5 inches in diameter. 
  6. Remove the wax paper and bake for 12 minutes or until golden brown. 
  7. Cool on the baking sheets for three to five minutes before peeling off the parchment paper.

Low Carb Keto Tortilla Recipe Tips

This is such a simple recipe. However, you will need a good quality food processor and rolling pin… Items I find some new cooks do not own. A blender, no matter powerful, cannot accomplish the same kind of grind.

Grind the cauliflower in the food processor until it looks like rice. Then pulse in all the other ingredients. This ensures an even mixture.

Use a scoop to portion out the “dough” onto a lined baking sheet. That way, all your tortillas are the same size and dimensions.

Then make sure to place wax paper over the dough before rolling it out.

Frequently Asked Questions

Can you shape and fry them like crispy taco shells?

I wouldn’t deep fry them. However, you could bake them into the shape you want… Either using a taco shell oven rack or by using foil as a rack to form the shells.

Would this work with defrosted cauliflower rice? 

Yes, it will as long as you make sure that it is well-drained and patted dry before adding it into the food processor. 

How long do they stay fresh?

These tortillas are usually best within the hour of making them and they do not do well frozen, so I do not recommend making them ahead of time.

  1. This looks like a really promising recipe for low-carb tortillas, made simply, with just a few straightforward ingredients. I hope to try it… may need to invest in a food processor first! Two questions though:
    – has anyone learned yet whether these tortillas will work well in a layered and baked casserole recipe, and
    – would it be a problem to omit the salt for low-sodium dietary requirements?
    Thanks for the recipe!

  2. These tortillas were delicious and so easy to make! Making them again soon!

  3. Great recipe! Love using these for tacos!!

  4. Well that one is going on the todo list…
    Hubby loves tacos and is really jonessing for some .

  5. I haven’t made this yet. I am dairy free. Do you know if vegan cheese would work? Thank you for this!

  6. I made a 1/2 batch, (4) and they tasted very good! I pureed them well, i didnt need a roller, just pressed them out under a sheet of wax paper with my hand. I had to bake them longer to dry them up a little. The texture was nice, they held up to the filling pretty good. They tasted great! I will make these again!

  7. These were perfect!  I was impressed how well they held together for tacos.  

    I used frozen riced cauliflower, and in small batches put it in my vitamix to finely chop it.  (I don’t have a food processor).  It worked really well.  I laid it on paper towels to defrost afterwards. Worked great!

  10. This looks so fun and delicious! I make corn tortillas in my tortilla press using two layers of plastic to press the tortilla between. Do you know if these can be flattened in a tortilla press? Thank you for your recipe!

  11. DELECTABLE!!!
    I’m on a pretty strict keto diet due to health issues. I made these tortillas tonight.
    I rolled them too thin, so hubby and I opted for open faced tortillas. I topped each decadent tortilla with;

    – Sliced Avocado.
    – Shredded Red cabbage.
    – Finely chopped red onion
    – Marinated/ Broiled Tilapia [thousand island dressing/lemon/horseradish, sprinkle of cayenne]
    – squeeze of fresh lime after plated.

    Note: I was soooo impressed with the texture, flavour and ease of making these tortillas.

    I’m now going to attempt to alter the ingredients of a ‘keto lasagne’ And use these tortillas in lieu of the usual pasta layer. It’ll obably be more like enchiladas.

    I’ll report back how the dish worked out.

    One things for sure. I’m a night grazer… These tortillas are now my go to snack :) Soooo tasty!!!

  12. Try adding a bag of crushed pork rinds…

  13. can you shape and fry these to make them like crispy taco shells

    • Hi Alfred,

      I wouldn’t deep fry them. However, you could bake them into the shape you want… Either using a taco shell oven rack, or by using foil as a rack to form the shells. Hope this helps! :)
