  • 12ozChicken Breast Filet, skinless
  • 0 1/2tspCumin seed, ground
  • 0 1/4tspSalt
  • 0 1/4tspBlack Pepper, ground
  • 6TbspRed Salsa
  • 1cup (8 fl oz)Chicken Broth or Bouillon
  • 1 1/2cup(s)Cheddar cheese, shredded (1 cup= 113 g)
  • 1eachAvocado, Hass
  • 4TbspSour Cream
  • 1teaspoon(s)Lime juice, fresh (1 tsp= 5g)
  • 0 1/4tspSalt
  • 0 1/8tspGarlic Powder


  1. In a small cup, combine the cumin, salt and pepper. Sprinkle evenly over both sides of the chicken breasts.
  2. In an Instant Pot® with the trivet inserted, add the chicken broth. Place the chicken breasts on the trivet, and spread the salsa evenly over the chicken. Set the Instant Pot® to pressure cook on high for 14 minutes. Allow the steam to naturally release for 5 minutes, then manually release the remaining steam and remove the chicken to a cutting board, retaining as much salsa as possible. Use two forks to shred the chicken, mixing with the salsa. Set aside.
  3. While the chicken is cooking, preheat oven to 375°. Prepare two baking sheet size pieces of parchment paper by tracing 6 4-inch diameter circles on each. Flip the parchment (so the ink is on the underside) and place on baking sheets. Measure 2 tablespoons shredded cheddar cheese into the center of each traced circle, spreading the shreds out to evenly fill each of the 12 circles. Bake for 5 minutes, until fully melted and bubbling. Remove from oven and let cool for 5 minutes.
  4. Place 2 tablespoons of shredded chicken in the center of each cooled cheese circle, and roll into a cigar shape with the chicken in the middle. Place these taquitos into a 200° oven to keep warm. The cheese will become more solid as it cools, although it will not be crisp.
  5. In a small food processor, make the avocado crema by blending together the flesh from the avocado with sour cream, lime juice, salt and garlic powder until creamy and smooth.
  6. Serve two warm taquitos with 2 tablespoons avocado creama. Two taquitos and two tablespoons avocado creama is one serving.

Cooking Tip

These keto taquitos give you all the flavors you love, but note that the cheese will not end up as crispy as the corn tortillas used in their high carb namesake.

Comment calculer les glucides nets

Avec l’approche nutritionnelle AtkinsMD, le décompte net AtkinsMC est calculé en soustrayant le nombre de grammes de fibres et de polyols (comme la glycérine et les alcools de sucre) du nombre total de grammes de glucides contenu dans les aliments entiers. Ce calcul correspond au concept voulant que les fibres et les polyols ont des répercussions minimales sur le taux de glycémie dans les quantités dans lesquelles on les retrouve dans les produits.
