Paleo Chilli Taco’s – A Paleo Recipe That Fit’s Any Party

Who doesn’t want tacos? This versatile recipe meal can get everyone’s mouth watering. Taco recipes can be as simple or as complicated as a person desires. But is it possible to make this all-time favorite, Paleo friendly? Yes, and it is very easy to do it, too!

When we talk about parties, there will definitely be room for tacos, burritos, and all those hot Mexican dishes. If there is one dish that can probably fit any party (even a kid’s party!), it’s tacos. However, for a person who is in love with tacos and practicing the Paleo diet, it just doesn’t fit. And this is very frustrating.

Paleo Food - Chilis

We all know how and what tacos are made of wheat or corn tortillas with fillings of different types, depending on your taste. The filling can be changed into Paleo friendly fillings, but the taco tortilla is where the issue of staying Paleo friendly becomes a big challenge. For months now, I’ve been trying to make tortillas that are Paleo friendly, but so far what I make are nowhere near the real thing. Until I came across this very easy tortilla recipe that is also very Paleo.

This recipe is for keeps, especially if you are as in love as I am when it comes to Mexican food. If you also need to feed lots of people, tacos can be a great meal that can fill up their tummies and still be healthy. Have any left-overs in the fridge? Using them in tacos will never be a problem. So here is the recipe for my chili taco filling and Paleo friendly tortillas.

Paleo-Friendly Tortilla’s

Ingredients For The Paleo Tortilla’s

  • 1 Teaspoon (5 g) Ghee – Melted (you may also use melted coconut oil)
  • 1 Tablespoon (15 ml) water
  • 2 Eggs
  • ¼ Cup (59 g) Arrowroot Powder
  • 1 Teaspoon (5 g) Coconut Flour
  • Pinch of Salt

Let’s Cook The Tortilla’s

  • In a medium-sized bowl, whisk together the eggs, ghee, and water thoroughly.
  • Add the arrowroot powder, coconut flour and salt to the egg mixture. Mix the batter well.
  • Place a small skillet over medium to high heat. Pour in about 1/3 of the batter and roll it around immediately. This will help even out the batter.
  • Cook the tortilla for 1 minute on each side. You’ll notice that the tortilla will pull away at the edges as it cooks.
  • Serve whilst hot together with your Paleo chili filling.

Paleo Recipes - Paleo Chilli Taco's

This Paleo tortilla recipe is a tasty dish that you will absolutely choose over more traditional flour tortilla recipes. You may even use this same tortilla recipe for making crepes by adding a teaspoon of vanilla extract! The ingredients used for making the Paleo tortilla can complement any filling that you have whether it be the featured beef chili or even a vegetarian filling.

Worried how the tortilla shell will hold itself? With the batches I made, I proved that it can pretty much hold up to the rolling or folding. I kept the batches in an airtight container so the crispness of the tortilla shell is retained. If you want to freeze the shells, that won’t be a problem as well. Each frozen tortilla shell will thaw perfectly and be flexible again.

This Paleo chili tacos recipe will definitely become a game changer for all the taco lovers you know. You might even find your kids (if you have any), partner/spouse and friends asking for this dish more than anything else whenever you have a party or even just for an ordinary lunch. So do not be afraid to cook and indulge yourself with this Mexican favorite with a Paleo twist.
