Gluten-free, paleo and original Cinco de Mayo recipes

Many people use Cinco de Mayo as an excuse to hit their favorite taco shop and sit back with a margarita without realizing its historical significance. Did you know that May 5th is the anniversary of the day Mexico drove the French military out in 1862? Now you know why you clink your salt glasses and pile yourself on top of the guacamole.

While there is nothing wrong with a meal of Mexican food, it can be difficult to stick to your eating style when you pick up takeout. Here are 6 Mexican-inspired recipes you can whip up on May 5th, whether you’re following a gluten-free, paleo, or pristine lifestyle.

Shrimp Cauliflower Rice Bowls

An artfully arranged bowl of rice is a hearty meal that’s filled with a variety of colors, flavors, textures, and even temperatures. The thing is, the good stuff usually sits on a packed bed of rice that could push your carbs over the edge if you’re trying to keep them low. Rice cauliflower is a simple substitute that will satisfy a bowl as much as the real thing. Although it looks like a lot of work, this shrimp and cauli rice bowl recipe is ready in just a few minutes.

Keto burrito recipe

Everyone loves a good burrito. They’re hearty, filling, and you can fill them with anything you want to eat. Wrap them up and they make a convenient and tasty meal on the go. Can You Have Burritos When On Keto?

When you keep your carbs low, good burritos can seem out of reach. Traditional flour tortillas will send your carbohydrate numbers through the roof, and flammable grains will steal all of your energy. Other store-bought tortilla options are either just as high in carbon, have questionable ingredients, or they just don’t hold up.

We found a way. This keto burrito recipe has the taste you’re looking for without the carbohydrate-laden tote bag. Instead, we use a thin, crepe-like pancake that goes well with any combination of burrito ingredients you can think of.

These are neither fried nor scrambled eggs. The eggs in these tacos are only lightly set, with a warm, liquid egg yolk that is barely stirred into the white. Slide one of these gently-boiled eggs into a warm tortilla, sprinkle with cool avocado, lime, and jalapeno slices, and you have the perfect breakfast taco. Though these egg tacos are delicious for dinner too.

The whole point of pan meals is to make life easier by bringing a tasty, balanced meal to your table with very little cooking and cleaning. These pan steak fajitas deliver in every way. Strips of steak, peppers, and onions, served with avocado and salsa, are a delicious mix of egg whites, colorful vegetables, and healthy fat. Everything cooks together at the same time. After dinner, a cutting board, bowl, and two sheet pans are the only cleanup that will get you stuck.

Taco salad made from roasted steak, avocado, tomato, grated lettuce, and creamy chipotle dressing is delicious without the decoration. But if you happen to have cheddar cheese in the fridge and a few extra minutes to grate and bake it, why not make an edible cheddar bowl?

This layered taco casserole is a luxury item with no regrets. There are still layers of everything that makes taco casserole great: tortillas, seasoned ground beef, chili peppers, cheese, and a mile-high top of shredded lettuce, fresh tomatoes, avocado, and green onions. But the tortillas are approved by Primal and Paleo, the minced meat is grass-fed, and the cheese is high-quality cheddar.
