Keto Doritos Locos Tacos

1 taco shell
If you get tired of missing out on the latest fast food trends, like the Doritos Locos from Taco Bell, then you must try this taco recipe. I’ve taken my keto hard taco shell recipe and my keto Doritos chips recipe and combined them to make the ultimate cheesy, crunchy experience you will got loco over!
Hard shell tacos are made with a few key ingredients like almond flour, protein powder and xanthan gum. To get that Doritos flavor, we add cheddar cheese powder and some additional spices for that cheesy kick we all crave.

Keto Doritos Locos Taco Shells Ingredients
Keto Doritos Locos Tacos Directions
Mix dry ingredients
In a medium bowl, whisk together almond flour, protein powder, xanthan gum, salt, cheddar cheese powder, chili powder and smoked paprika.
Finish tortilla dough
Pour in hot water and mix with a fork until combined.
Press into tortillas
Divide the dough into 8 balls (about 2 inches in diameter). Place each ball in between two circles of parchment paper and use a tortilla press or rolling pin to flatten into a circle about 6 inches wide. Leave each tortilla in between the parchment paper.
Make hard shells
Pour 1/2 inch of avocado oil into a skillet and heat oil over medium heat. Add tortilla and submerge in the hot oil let cook for a minute then using two spatulas fold tortilla over to form a taco shape. Let fry for about a minute or until just about hardened. Flip and fry the other side after a minute.
Remove and let dry upside down on a paper towel lined tray. This will help hold the taco open as it dry. Keto taco shell will continue to harden as it dries.
