Marinade (if using chicken instead of jackfruit):

For the Tacos:

Taco Toppings:


For the Homemade Taco Seasoning:

  1. Place all of the spices in an airtight jar and shake to mix. Use in marinades, sprinkle over ground beef or use as a dry rub. Store in the cabinet for later use. 

For Chicken Taco Filling with Marinade:

  1. You can marinate the chicken for a richer flavor, but if you don't have time to marinate, you slice the chicken into strips, then use the taco seasoning as a dry rub for the chicken breast and pan fry it with coconut oil.

  2. To marinate the chicken, slice 2 boneless skinless chicken breasts into small strips and place into a bowl or tupperware container. 

  3. Refrigerate for at least 2 hours or overnight. 

  4. Add 1 tbsp of coconut oil to a pan on medium heat then add the chicken strips. Allow them to cook through (about 7-10 minutes).

For the Vegan Chili Lime Jackfruit Carnitas

  1. Since the upton natural brand has already pre-marinated the jackfruit, all you have to do is cook it!

  2. Add 1 tbsp of coconut oil to a pan on medium heat, then add the entire contents of the jackfruit package into the pan. Cook just enough to heat it evenly (about 5-10 minutes).

Assembling the Chipotle Lime Vegan Keto Tacos:

  1. Heat up the tortillas by placing 1-2 at a time on a skillet on medium heat for about 30-60 seconds on each side.

  2. Place some of the chicken or jackfruit on the tortilla (or both! they are both low-carb!). Then top with your preferred toppings such as guacamole, salsa, cilantro, cabbage, lettuce or onions. Enjoy!
