Mexican food is delicious! Who doesn’t like it?And one of the best things to eat are burritos. Unfortunately, a large part of a burrito consists of a carbohydrate-rich tortilla or wrap. And that is unfortunately not so healthy.It contains a lot of carbohydrates and very little fiber. Not ideal if you want to eat low carbohydrates or improve your blood sugar.That’s why I have a tasty and healthy recipe for a low-carbohydrate burrito for you here. Perfect for when you want to dine low in carbohydrates without depriving yourself of Mexican cuisine if you have type 2 diabetes.

You can even consider this to be a burrito bowl because you are not using a tortilla, which keeps this recipe keto-friendly (if you leave out the corn) and healthy. What more do you want?Check out the photos below to see what awaits you.
