Easy Low Carb Recipe: Keto Pork Rind Tortillas


I forgot to take a picture of these yummy low carb / keto tortillas until after I had already devoured two of them.  This one was on it's way to my mouth and I realized I better snap a picture QUICK!  Hence, the very low quality :)

I found this recipe on The Primitive Palate (a Low Carb / Ketogenic site chock full of amazingness) and knew I had to give them a whirl!!

These are SO easy to make and really make taco night on a low carb diet quite fun.

Gathering up the ingredients is even easy too because there's so few of them :)

Simple Ingredients for these low carb tortillas.

I started by weighing out the pork rinds because I was halving the recipe & I couldn't figure out the best way to use half the bag (I'm assuming the actual recipe calls for a full bag & mine was 3.5 ounces; however, I went on and measured out 2 ounces just in case):



Place the pork rinds in your food processor and pulse until they are dust:



Add in the rest of your ingredients and pulse until you have a smooth batter:



After I was done pulsing, I used a silicone spatula to transfer the batter to a large pyrex:



While I was transferring the batter to the pyrex, I heated up a pan on the oven until water droplets would sizzle.  I then sprayed the pan with some olive oil.

Speaking of spraying olive oil - I use a Misto.  Best purchase EVER.  I can use olive oil that I trust and there are no weird chemicals and it is aerated by pumping so it's good for the environment.  Here's the exact one I use (this is my Amazon affiliate link):

Anyways, on to the actual recipe :)  Hope you love these as much as I did.  If you try out the recipe, please leave a comment to let me know if you loved it or hated it or was just meh about it.  If you tweaked it in anyway that might have made it fabulous, I'd love to hear about that too.  


INGREDIENTS:

  • 4 ounces pork rinds
  • 1 8-ounce package cream cheese (softened)
  • 8 eggs
  • 1/3 cup water
  • 1 tablespoon granulated garlic
  • 1 tablespoon ground cumin

DIRECTIONS:

  • Place pork rinds into a food processor and pulse until they are dust.

  • Add all other ingredients to food processor and pulse until you have a nice smooth batter.

  • Preheat a non-stick pan and spray cooking surface with a little spray oil.

  • Pour 1/3 cup of batter onto pan, gently spread the batter as thin as you can; cook for 2 minutes or until golden brown.

  • Flip tortilla and continue to cook for about 45 more seconds.

  • Repeat with the rest of the batter.  

MY EXTRA THOUGHTS:

The original recipe was made with hot & spicy pork rinds; however, those were not available at the grocery store today.  I bought chili lime flavored and it turned out well - gave it a Mexican like flavor.  

If your batter seems to thick to get them to spread out enough, add some more water (I realized my batter needed this after the first two).

When I was cooking these, I put paper towels between them.  I worried that the moisture from the heat would change their consistency while I prepared the others.

I actually cut this recipe in half because my hubs does not low carb & isn't willing to try "weird frankenfoods."  He did; however, say that they smelled great & sounded a bit envious :)

The original recipe states these can be made ahead and wrapped in plastic or stored in the freezer.  I will not be able to eat all 6 tonight so I'll be storing half in the fridge to see if this works ok.  I'll edit this if I think it changes the consistency of them too much.

NUTRITION INFORMATION:

  • I halved this recipe and it did make 6 tortillas.  This nutrition information is figured at 12 since I used the original recipe in the blog post.
I shop on Amazon ALL the time so I finally registered for an affiliate account to share with ya'll the products I actually use.  If you purchase from my link, the price will be the same, but Amazon gives me a small perk.  Here are the useful items I used in this blog post:
