I know, we haven’t even finished with Easter yet. But Easter comes so late this year that it feels like Cinco de Mayo celebrating should start right after Easter Weekend, and I’m always looking for a good excuse to make Mexican food! This new round-up has Ten Amazing Low-Carb Mexican Food Dinners to Make in the Instant Pot, and if you’re a Mexican food fan who tries to eat low-carb, you’ll definitely find some tasty ideas here!
I think some of my best Instant Pot recipes on my main blog Kalyn’s Kitchen are the ones with Mexican flavors, so I’ve included more of my own recipes than usual in this round-up. And the ones from other blogs are all dishes I would love to try as well. I say, the second Easter is over let’s start having Mexican food for dinner, what do you think about that?

The spicy meat from this Instant Pot Low-Carb Southwestern Pot Roast from Kalyn’s Kitchen is perfect to use in low-carb tortillas for tacos or burritos, or eat it plain if you prefer. There’s also a recipe for Low-Carb Southwestern Pot Roast in the Slow Cooker if you prefer that method!
Instant Pot Brisket Taco Bowls from 40 Aprons use cauliflower rice, and this dish has so many good flavors going on! And these taco bowls are also Paleo and Whole 30 approved.
This Instant Pot Low-Carb Green Chile Pork Taco Bowl from Kalyn’s Kitchen also has instructions for making the spicy pork in the slow cooker if you prefer. And as you can see, I like this with plenty of grated cheese and sour cream, but you can omit those if you want to save some carbs.
