I don’t think I enjoy any category of food more than Mexican food. That’s probably why our Mexican category is pretty well populated. So, these Low Carb Carne Asada Bowls absolutely make my heart sing. I’m sure it will for you keto lovers too.
We also released the carne asada by itself on its own recipe page in case you want to use it for other things.
