This chipotle lime keto vegan taco recipe is such a fun, healthy and easy meal. The smoky chili seasoning and the bright lime accent combine to create a delicious and quick paleo and vegetarian friendly dish.
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.
To marinate the chicken, slice 2 boneless skinless chicken breasts into small strips and place into a bowl or tupperware container.
Refrigerate for at least 2 hours or overnight.
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).
Since the upton natural brand has already pre-marinated the jackfruit, all you have to do is cook it!
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).
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.
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!
