I had leftover chicken and peppers and thought to make some keto tacos with them, but wanted to make them different somehow. Since I also had a big bottle of sugar-free BBQ sauce, I thought BBQ chicken tacos was a great option that wouldn’t new much effort. These keto southwest BBQ chicken and bean tacos make a perfect dish for a lazy weekday dinner, and super flexible too! Make them with keto tortillas or in lettuce wraps, eat it in a bowl with cauliflower rice or throw it on top of some crisp romaine lettuce for a nice, filling salad.
