Pork Rind Tortillas

Pork Rind Tortillas! Low carb, gluten-free and keto friendly!

My husband loves tacos.  Don’t get me wrong, so do I! But we differ in one area. I am a hard shell girl and he prefers soft flour tortillas. The only low-carb version of hard shell tacos I’ve seen basically make the shells from crispy cheese and it’s just not similar enough for me. Luckily, for my husband-making mock flour tortillas is easy!

I was planning on just making the crepes from my Pistachio & Coconut Crepe Cake and just leaving out the stevia, but the hubby had the brilliant idea to add crushed pork rinds! Our cabinet is full of pork rinds on a regular basis for his love of my Pickle-Brined Fried Chickenand I happened to have some Hot & Spicy ones that I thought would be perfect for this application!

Making these tortillas is super easy! Basically, you puree everything in a food processor and then cook them like very thin pancakes! The recipes makes about 12 six inch torillas, so they come out to be less than 1 carb per tortilla!

After they are all made, just fill with your favorite taco ingredients. We did seasoned ground beef, guacamole, salsa, baby lettuce, shredded cheese and sour cream!

Keto Pork Rind Tortillas

  • Servings: 12 six inch tortillas
  • Difficulty: easy
  • Print


  • 4 oz. Hot & Spicy Pork Rinds (regular work just fine, too)
  • 1 (eight oz.) package cream cheese, softened
  • 8 eggs
  • 1/3 cup water
  • 1 tablespoon granulated garlic
  • 1 tablespoon ground cumin


  1. Place pork rinds into a food processor and blitz for about 10 seconds, until they are dust.
  2. Add all other ingredients to food processor and blitz for about 45 more seconds. Until you have a nice smooth batter.
  3. Preheat an electric griddle to high. (Using a non-stick pan on the stove top would work also, I would just set the heat to medium-high)
  4. Spray cooking surface with a little spray oil (I use either coconut oil or olive oil spray) and pour 1/3 cup of batter onto griddle.
  5. Gently spread the batter as thin as you can with a rubber spatula and cook for about 2 minutes or until golden brown.
  6. Flip tortilla and continue to cook for about 45 more seconds.
  7. Repeat with the rest of the batter.

*These tortillas can be made ahead and wrapped in plastic, or stored in the freezer!

  2. These are so delicious. My husband and I are trying to convince a friend of ours to do keto with us and these dcid it!

  3. Great recipe! I have made and loved the tortillas a couple time. Today I made a half batch and turned it into 2 8inch pizza crusts. Better than any other low carb pizza crust I have made yet!

  5. These are delicious. I used regular pork rinds and since I’m dairy free I used a ricotta made from almonds. It was nice to enjoy tacos with my family and stay within my macros. Thank you for a great recipe using one of my favorite snacks.

  7. Wow I can’t wait to try these! I just have a few questions. After you make them, are they hard or soft? If soft, do you just fry them or bake them to get them to become hard shelled? Oh and thank you so much for this great idea using pork rinds!

    • Try using egg whites only to get a non eggy flavour. Keep the yolks for hollandaise or mayo or something.

  8. I made these tonight and love them! However, I don’t see how they are less than 1 carb each. MFP says they are 2 carbs each. Will someone please clarify for me? I’d greatly appreciate it.

  9. I love these!!! I’ve made them a total of 4 times now. What I do at the cooking step is, one at a time (takes a while, but worth it), I put them in the pan and circle the pan around until the “batter” is thin. Meanwhile, the oven is preheated to 200 and they keep their heat. WONDERFUL!!! Thank you for saving my life!

  10. I’ve tried some really good keto recipes. And I’ve tried some really bad ones. I’ve also tried some “copycat” recipes that really didn’t live up to the original. These tortillas are better than the tortillas I used to eat before keto. If I ever go back to non-keto, I will still be eating these tortillas. Thank you so much for the recipe!

    • A blender should work…but just an fyi, I wanted a food processor a few years ago because of all the recipes that called for them, but didn’t want to spend a ton of money. I found a Black and Decker fp for around $25 at Walmart. Not sure of the price now, but don’t think it’s more than $30. Best buy I ever made. Perfect size, works great. Does all the basic things a processor needs to do!

  12. These were delicious!! I haven’t had tacos since starting the Keto eating plan, so these were a very nice addition. Thanks for the recipe.

  13. A bag of pork rinds is 5 oz but it looked like only a hand full was placed in the blender. How much (measured) ground up pork rinds do you need?

  14. Reblogged this on Phase Three and commented:
    Need me some tortillas whilst I am working through this keto type diet to balance my blood sugars, keep the numbers under some kind of management control.
