  • Air Fryer


  • 1 tortillas
  • 1 spreadable cheese
  • 1/3 cup taco meat
  • 2 tbsp salsa
  • 1/4 cup cheese
  • spinach & cilantro torn and mixed
  • 1/4 whole avocado


  • STEP ONE - Low Carb Tortillas (Mama Lupes). By my calculations, these yummy tortillas only have 3 net grams.
  • STEP TWO - spreadable cheese. I use Laughing Cow wedges. They come in lots of flavors and are 1 Weight Watcher points.
  • STEP THREE - taco meat. In the recipe, I used leftover taco meat. If I was going to make these for dinner the taco meat wouldn't be leftover. I have also used Turkey Taco Meat and it's just as delicious!
  • STEP FOUR - salsa. I used store-bought in the recipe but this Easy Homemade Mexican Salsa would be perfect in this dish.
  • STEP FIVE - grated cheese. Mild cheddar was used here but pepper jack, sharp cheddar, a combination of both would be yummy.
  • STEP SIX - spinach & cilantro. This step is where I probably lost most of you all. THIS STEP IS OPTIONAL:)
  • STEP SEVEN - roll it up like the diagram below. Spray with spray oil and place in the Air Fryer basket. Cook at 390 degrees for about 8 minutes. I would check on it at about 6 minutes, not every Air Fryer cooks the same.
  • STEP EIGHT - mashed avocado with spicy seasoning and salsa mixed in. Include this inside or top with the avocado outside. THIS STEP IS OPTIONAL AS WELL, lol:)


Can be made in the oven at 425 for about 10 minutes.
For a soft low carb burrito assemble burrito and microwave for about 1 minute.
