Looking for an evening meal with a little spice? Then these low- carb burritos with spicy minced meat are definitely for you! They look festive and taste super good. We made the burritos with low-carb wraps and filled with spicy minced meat and lots of vegetables. As a result, a serving of 2 filled burritos contains only 7.8 g of carbohydrates.
We made these low-carb burritos with Atkins tortilla wraps. We chose to present the burritos nicely as stuffed dots. We did this by cutting the wraps in half and then rolling them up into dots. Then you bake the dots so that they keep their shape. This way you make eating these burritos not only tastier but also more fun. The filling is nice and spicy because of the chili powder and cayenne pepper. If you don’t like spicy food, do a little less with the minced meat mixture.
With this recipe, you can make burritos for about 3 to 4 people. You can complete the evening meal by serving it with a nice fresh salad. You can also adjust this basic recipe to your liking. You can also use chicken instead of minced meat or, for example, a vegetarian alternative. I hope you like it! For more inspiration, check out our other low- carb dinner recipes.
