Keto Mexican Chimichangas

These are a GAME CHANGER! While the low-carb wheat tortillas might be an issue for some keto dieters, my family loved them and I like to use them occasionally in recipes! If you’re missing soft flour tortillas, Keto Mexican Chimichangas are a nice change of pace and seriously delicious.

INGREDIENTS

  • 2 low carb tortillas
