Check out the difference in net carbs for each. This is for 1 taco, and includes the cheese and lettuce (NO shell!)

  • Seasoned Beef – 2 Net Carbs
  • Fire Roasted Chicken – 1 Net Carb
  • Shredded Chicken – 2 Net Carbs

Determine which low carb meat option you want to use for your DIY low carb taco salad – and using the net carbs, determine how many tacos you want to order.

So if you want to only eat 4 carbs, order 4 fire roasted chicken tacos and dump on a plate. Another option is order 2 grilled steak tacos – for 4 net carbs. Yes, you will have to math!
