Keto Chicken Ranch Tacos {Paleo & Whole30}

These Keto Chicken Ranch Tacos combine my 2 favorite things – tacos and ranch dressing! They are also gluten free, Paleo, and can be made Whole30!

Chicken Ranch Tacos On A Plate

 

These Keto Chicken Tacos are not only ridiculously easy to make, but they’re super tasty too! They combine 2 of my favorite flavors – tacos and and ranch dressing! They can be made Keto, Paleo, or Whole30 compliant and are a fun spin on traditional tacos.

 

Keto, Paleo & Whole30

Whether you make these Keto, Paleo, or Whole30 compliant entirely depends on the tortilla (or lack thereof!) that you wrap the tacos in. For Paleo tortillas, I have several options:

Of  the options above, I prefer the grain free tortillas or wraps because they’re so easy to make and always turn out great! The other options are great too though, especially if you can’t have eggs or nuts!

To make them Keto, you can use the Soft Keto Tortillas from my Keto Breads Cookbook or simply leave out the tortilla and serve them over lettuce with extra ranch dressing. Leaving out the the tortillas  would also make them Whole30 compliant because there are no breads or tortillas of any kind allowed on Whole30.

Shortcuts

The recipe below uses homemade taco seasoning, tortillas, and ranch dressing. If you want to save some time, you can replace all of the spices with a package of gluten free taco seasoning, use an allergy friendly store bought ranch dressing (such as Tessame’s or Primal Kitchen), and buy store-bought tortillas. If you buy tortillas, I prefer Siete tortillas. Not only are they grain free and Paleo, but they are the only tortillas I’ve found that are flexible, don’t fall apart, and taste like real tortillas!

 

Dipping A Carrot Into Ranch Dressing

 

I would be remiss if I didn’t tell you, though, that the homemade version is MUCH better and doesn’t take all that much longer. The taco seasoning just uses 7 basic spices  (including salt and pepper!) that you most likely already have in your pantry, and the ranch dressing is better than any store-bought version ever though about being! It’s rich, creamy, has no weird aftertaste, and has a strong ranch flavor. So even though I recommend the homemade versions – you can use the store-bought stuff if you need to  😊

  1. We love tacos in our house! They are especially good made into a ranch style. I didn’t even know vegan ranch salad dressing exists. Thanks for sharing this week at Allergy-Free Wednesdays! As always, hope to see you back again next week.

    Have a good weekend!
