Taco Casa is a small fast-food chain that has 83 locations in Texas and the United States. It is famous for its Mexican-inspired cuisines like tacos, burritos, nachos, enchiladas, quesadillas, and taco salads that are suitable for different tastes and lifestyles. Nonetheless, do these meals suit low carb diets like the ketogenic diet as well?
According to the official nutrition menu, there are 6 keto options available at Taco Casa with under 20g of net carbs.
Mexican cuisine lovers on keto may be disappointed to know that the burritos, nachos, and quesadillas at Taco Casa are off-limits as they are high in carbs and may throw a keto eater out of ketosis.
Tacos and Tostadas are available keto options at Taco Casa. For Tacos, we recommend the Taco with 9g of net carbs and the Soft Taco with 14g of net carbs. Taco Lite is also a keto-friendly meal but keep in mind that it has 21g of net carbohydrates so we suggest leaving off the taco shell so you can reduce the carb count.
For Tostadas, The Tostada and Super Tostada topped our keto selections with 17g and 21g of net carbs. Although these meals are keto-friendly they still contain relatively high carbohydrates so you should eat them according to your remaining carb allowance.
