Tacos have always been an all time favorite of mine, but one of the main ingredients are not keto friend - the tortilla. With this recipe we solve that by scooping everything into bowls. No need for actual bowls, just use your avocado skin!

A great recipe to use your leftover chicken. This is a very simple keto friendly taco recipe made with fresh vegetables and avocado.

Instructions

  1. 1
    Chop all the vegetables as required and leave aside.
  2. 2
    You can use leftover roast chicken for this recipe. If you dont have any leftovers simply poach 2-3 medium sized pieces of chicken breast and shred the meat once cooled.
  3. 3
    Cut the avocados carefully into half, preserving the peel to use as cups. This recipe requires only one avocado. You can use the other one to make guacamole and serve it as a side.
  4. 4
    Heat the olive oil in a pan and add half the onions. Sauté for a few seconds and then add the shredded chicken. Stir the ingredients and then add the seasoning.
  5. 5
    Mix well so that the seasoning coats the chicken well and doesnt burn. You may reduce the heat to low after you add the seasoning so that the spices dont stick to the pan.
  6. 6
    Once the seasoning is added, sauté for just 10 seconds and turn off the heat.
  7. 7
    Add all the ingredients, including the chicken mixture into a bowl.
  8. 8
    Squeeze a lime over the ingredients, stir and taste for seasoning. If you need more lime, add it right now.
  9. 9
    Using a spoon, scoop out the taco mixture and spoon it into the avocado cups. Garnish with cilantro and grated cheese and serve immediately.
