Keto Easy Creamy Tuna Tacos
- 3 tablespoons mayonnaise
- 3 tablespoons sour cream
- 3 tablespoons heavy cream
- 2 teaspoons lime juice (freshly squeezed, if available)
- 1 teaspoon lime zest
- 2 tablespoons onion, diced
- 1 tablespoon avocado oil
- 2 cloves garlic, finely chopped
- 1 large jalapeño, finely chopped
- Two 5-oz cans of tuna, drained
- ¼ teaspoon ground cumin
- Himalayan pink sea salt and freshly ground black pepper (to taste)
Whisk together the mayonnaise, sour cream, heavy, cream, lime zest and lime juice. Put in the fridge until ready to use.
Heat oil in a small pan and sauté onions, garlic and jalapeño until softened then add the tuna and sauté, stirring often, until tuna is heated through and very slightly browned. Remove from heat.
While the tuna mixture cools, prep your condiments. I recommend diced avocado, diced tomato, salsa, and chopped fresh herbs (*I used a mix of cilantro and oregano.) Combine ¾ of the creamy lime sauce with the tuna mixture. Add tuna mixture to cheese taco shells or warmed keto tortillas (vegan flax tortillas also work). Top with all your other condiments and drizzle the remaining creamy lime sauce over top and serve.
