Low Carb Reuben Tacos – Take a Bite Out of Leftover Corned Beef
When you want rockin’ low carb corned beef recipes to use up leftover St. Patrick’s Day corned beef, or to simply make inventive dishes to enjoy on St. Paddy’s Day, where do you go and what do you do? Fluffy Chix Cook took a super high carb Reuben Sandwich and morphed it into a healthy Low Carb Reuben Taco, giving it a little Tex Mex flavpr with jalapeno flare. They’ll also share ideas and links to more uses for leftover corned beef. Yeehaw! Slainte!
You read all about my fixation with Reuben sandwiches in the Reuben Salad post, so you know how magical the combination of corned beef, sharp cheese, cabbage (any way), and Russian dressing is to this Fluffy Chix. But you may not necessarily know how much Tex Mex dominates our food choices. We are such Tex Mex Chilehoes—er—I mean chileheads, we practically have jalapenos and serranos running through our veins.
We have our Tex Mex obsession to thank for the creation of the Low Carb Reuben Taco recipe. Sorry for the links but the main recipes for this incredibly delicious low carb keto wrap/taco exist in the March, St. Patrick’s Day FEAST edition. Most of you will know it’s an e-book in pdf format that can be read on all devices and allows printing recipes. So I hope you will bear with us as we showcase recipes that highlight the fantastic use of Lucky Leftovers from the book. Hope you will give the Reuben Taco a try and think you will agree it’s a totally yummy recipe for a quick and simple low carb wrap! Tacos don’t have to be made from traditional taco ingredients! You can have 2 big Low Carb tacos for less than 10g of effective carbs. That’s a huge win in our book! The Lo Lo Wraps are perfect for this simple wrap. They’re super low carb and sturdy enough to handle a semi-wet filling (fried cabbage + Russian Dressing = semi-wet).
This is a low carb Easy Button recipe for sure. It took a total of 7 minutes to assemble and nuke it. Then took about 10 minutes before it was in our bellehs and we had smiles on our faces! And if you don’t have any leftover corned beef (we fought over the last 2 ounce slice, swearsies), you can easily sub corned beef for your favorite sausage for about the same cals and carbs. We love using Prasek’s sausage because the sausage has no fillers, soy, MSG, and it’s close to zero carbs. And it has huge satisfaction levels! We also switched out the normal Swiss cheese for our current crush, Kerrygold Dubliner Cheese. Slainte!

Wow such a quick fix and filled with Lucky Leftovers you would never know were leftovers!
- 2 Lo Lo Psylli Wraps
- 3 ounces Best Corned Beef
- 1 ounce Dubliner Cheese—or Swiss cheese
- 1 serving Fried Cabbage with Bacon and Onion
- 1/2 jalapeno chile pepper, cut into strips with seeds
- 2 tablespoons Russian Dressing—or Secret Sauce
- Assemble tacos with all ingredients except Russian dressing. Cover and microwave for 1 1/2-2 minutes or until heated through and cheese is melted. Top with Russian dressing. Serve immediately.
Wow these were so easy and here's one more example to prove the superiority of the Tex Mex way! You don't have to add the jalapeno, but why wouldn't you? You better make a whole other corned beef, just for the leftovers!
Serving Ideas Serve as a stand-alone taco and a big glass of iced tea or sparkling water!
