  • 2 cups cooked chicken, shredded
  • 6 slices of bacon, cooked and crumbled
  • 1/2 cup ranch dressing (choose a keto-friendly version)
  • 1 cup cheddar cheese, shredded
  • 8 low-carb tortillas (look for those with the lowest net carbs)
  • 1 tablespoon olive oil or avocado oil
  • 1/4 cup sour cream (for dipping)
  • 2 tablespoons fresh parsley, chopped (for garnish)


Prep Time: 15 minutes

Cook Time: 15 minutes

Total Time: 30 minutes

Servings: 8 taquitos

  1. Preheat the Oven: Set your oven to 400 degrees F (200 degrees C) and line a baking sheet with parchment paper.
  2. Mix Filling: In a large bowl, combine the shredded chicken, crumbled bacon, ranch dressing, and cheddar cheese. Mix thoroughly until all components are uniformly distributed.
  3. Assemble Taquitos: Lay the low-carb tortillas flat on a clean surface. Spoon an equal amount of the chicken mixture onto each tortilla, spreading it in a thin line along one edge of the tortilla. Roll the tortilla tightly around the filling, securing it with a toothpick if necessary.
  4. Cook: Place the rolled taquitos seam-side down on the prepared baking sheet. Brush each taquito lightly with olive or avocado oil. This will increase their crispiness in the oven.
  5. Bake: Put the taquitos in the preheated oven and bake for 12-15 minutes, or until they are golden brown and crispy.
  6. Serve: Remove the taquitos from the oven, let them cool slightly, and garnish with chopped parsley. Serve with a side of sour cream for dipping.
