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.
