Keto Mexican Chicken Drumsticks. I am going to state this right up front that these keto Mexican chicken drumsticks are carbfree, as in zerocarb. No carbs in the Taco Seasoning, no carbs in the olive oil and no carbs in the chicken. So have at it and eat as many as you want. Now, I guess there may be <.5g in the lime juice if you use it but it’s optional anyway and if you like to dip you drumsticks in some kind of sauce I made mine with a little lebna, a little sour cream and yes, a little more taco seasoning to taste and it was delicious. You may have al little taco seasoning left over so just put it in a jar and use if for next time. If you like Fajitas you might use it for them and then maybe in a Spicy Taco Hamburger Bowl. As/if you look at all these recipes, you will notice they are all very kid friendly too.
