Keto Fajitas

Mmm...who doesn't love Mexican food?  Fajitas are my #1 entree of choice when going out to eat and eating keto friendly food.  It's really a no brainer - when ordering I simply say no tortillas or I just don't use them.  If it comes with rice and beans, politely decline those as well.  However, ask them to double the sour cream and guacamole since you can't have the sides.  Sometimes they'll do it for free, sometimes they won't.  I would say half of the restaurants I go to will do it for free, so that's not bad.

The awesome thing about fajitas is you can make keto fajitas so easily at home!  All you need is a few key and ingredients and they are super easy!

To get them like the restaurant fajitas, you must really sizzle on medium-high heat those onions and peppers.  Turn on your vent fan guys!  Onions are a moderate carb vegetable for keto, so just use one small one if you're watching those carbs really close.  If you can have a few more carbs for the day then add one more small onion to this recipe.  Note: the nutrition facts for this keto fajitas recipe only include one small onion.

Bell peppers are pretty nutritious.  Don't forget about them as a vegetable when you go keto.  However, we do understand that they are a nightshade vegetable - so some people may have to avoid them if they are on an anti-inflammatory diet plus keto.

I make most of my recipes with garlic powder, not the fresh stuff.  Fresh chopped garlic would be SO much better in this recipe, so if you have it on hand change a clove or two out for the garlic powder.

When you are finished knocking out these keto fajitas, serve them with as much sour cream and avocado (or low-carb guacamole) that you need.  The nutrition facts only allow for 1 whole avocado and 3 tbsp sour cream per person, but these are very low carb, high fat ingredients that we say use willingly.  Just be sure they fit in your calorie allotment.

If you need some help with all the avocados you're eating on the keto diet, try out this avocado slicerr from Amazon!  (Affiliate link disclaimer here).
