Who doesn’t love tacos?

Lettuce wrapped tacos are a great way to eat tacos if you’re trying to cut out carbs. Today we’re using leftover pulled pork from our slow cooker pork butt recipe to make these tacos quick and easy!

If you don’t eat pork you can also use our Instant Pot chuck roast recipe to make shredded beef tacos.

Or, if you want something easier, grab a rotisserie chicken and make shredded chicken tacos instead.

Ingredients for a pulled pork taco recipe

  • Bibb lettuce leaves, for taco “wrap”
  • Shredded pork butt
  • Shredded Mexican white cheese
  • Cherry tomatoes
  • Scallion
  • Cilantro
  • Salsa

Pro tip:  Can substitute shredded beef or chicken instead of pork in this recipe.

How to make leftover pulled pork tacos low carb

First you want to warm up your pulled pork, either on the stove top or in a microwave safe glass container. Don’t get it super hot or it will wilt the lettuce.

Then place ~2oz of pork on each “lettuce wrap.” With bib lettuce we usually use 2 large leaves. Next, dice up a few cherry tomatoes and then top with shredded cheese, sliced scallions, cilantro and salsa. 

We didn’t have any avocado on hand, but a few slices of avocado on top of these tacos would be an easy way to add extra fat and calories to the meal if you needed to.

When choosing pulled pork taco toppings make sure to use higher carb toppings like onions, salsa and tomatoes in moderation. The carbs will add up quick!

If you’re not a fan of lettuce wrapped tacos, you can also use our low carb tortillas recipe or store bought low carb tortillas

With these leftover pulled pork tacos we went with a very traditional flavor profile. If you want to mix things up you can make low carb BBQ Pork Tacos that we also made from our pulled pork recipe
