I love me a good taco. Who doesn’t?

They’re the Mexican version of sandwich and they’re spicy and delicious. Also, it’s WAY easier to make a  grain-free version of a taco and make it taste good than it is to make a grain-free version of a sandwich. Have you tried grain-free bread?

Not so good.

Have you tried my taco shell recipe?!

It’s freaking awesome.

I use tapioca flour, which is a safe starch and easy to digest. I like to add garlic and chipotle powder to the taco shell, but you can use any spice you like. Or not. Do your own thang.

Taco Shell

  • 2 eggs
  • 3 tbsp tapioca flour
  • dash of garlic powder
  • dash of chipotle powder
  • dash of salt
  • 1-2 tbsp coconut oil  <– has no coconut taste

Pico de Gallo:

  • 4 tomatoes diced
  • 2 tbsp cilantro chopped
  • 1 jalapeño diced
  • 1/4 onion diced
  • juice of half a lime


  • shredded poached or leftover rotisserie chicken, see notes


For the tacos

  • Mix all ingredients except coconut oil in a blender until smooth.
  • Melt 1 tbsp of coconut oil over medium heat.
  • Add half the batter. It will be kind of watery, don’t worry.
  • Let it cook for about two minutes on each side, or until it browns just a bit.
  • Repeat for second taco shell.

Pico de Gallo

  • Combine all ingredients.


I used shredded chicken from my roasted chicken. To make this a 20 minute meal, you can boil chicken and then shred it, or quickly sauté some shrimp or ground beef.

    Can you post nutrition facts and how many servings the above recipe makes? Thanks these look wonderful! Can’t wait to try them!

      I actually don’t recommend counting calories, carbs, fat so I cannot provide the nutrition facts. The recipe above is for two people. Hope you like it!

  2. Its SO annoying when people ask for the nutrition details. The person took the time to come up with the recipe that’s a lot in and of itself. There are apps you can use to look up all the ingredients folks!…thank you for the recipe Dani.

    Do you think Almond flour can be easily substituted?



  4. These look great! But since there is so little flour used do they have an eggy flavor?

    • dani stout Reply

      Maybe a little. You can add spices like garlic, turmeric, cumin, etc to cover it though.
