Low Carb Tortilla Recipe (Keto) – Ultra low carb tortillas you can make yourself using cauliflower and cheese! These tasty tortillas are sturdy enough to hold all your ketogenic taco toppings!
Low Carb Tortillas
Tacos are the perfect food, in my humble opinion.
Carbs, hot seasoned meat, cool veggie garnishes, sauce, 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.
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.)
What Ingredients You Will Need
- Raw Cauliflower (about 1/2 a large head)
- Shredded Cheddar Cheese
- Large Eggs

- Onion Powder
How to Make Low Carb Tortillas
- Preheat your oven and line your baking sheets with parchment paper.
- Place the roughly chopped cauliflower in the food processor and grind it until the cauliflower is the size of crumbs.
- Add in the rest of the ingredients in the food processor and puree until all the ingredients create a smooth texture and the dough forms.
- Using a cookie scoop, portion out the tortilla dough on the baking sheets allowing enough room for you to roll out the tortillas.
- 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.
- Remove the wax paper and bake for 12 minutes or until golden brown.
- 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 by using a taco shell oven rack, or using foil as a rack to form the shells.
Can I make each low-carb tortilla in a skillet?
Yes, you can shape the tortillas a fry them in a skillet over medium heat. Cook for 1-2 minutes per side.
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 and storing them in the fridge.
Other Flour Substitutions
Some other flour substitutions you can try are almond flour tortillas, sunflower seed flour, or coconut flour.
What other recipes can you use with these tortillas?
If you use a bigger tortilla press, you can end up making burritos, quesadillas, wraps, enchiladas, tortilla chips, and fajitas. You can make the tortillas any size you like.
