Focus, Keto Dieters: Here's How To Create The Perfect Low-Carb Bowl At Qdoba

Before you decide to made the leap to the low-carb ketogenic diet, Qdoba may have been your go-to for overstuffed burritos and cheesy quesadillas. If perhaps you're questioning what, if any, choices you have left at the fast-food spot, we've got answers.

First off, you will need to stay away from the tortillas, chips, rice, and beans — though you most likely already understood that — as well as each the black bean and mango salsas. Once you've got those out of the way, however, you can still come up with a totally yummy (and filling) meal. Simply follow these steps to build a high-fat meal which will satisfy your cravings while maintaining you in ketosis.

Begin with a naked burrito bowl
Rather than a high-carb tortilla, your meal will be served in a bowl which you can fill with all of your keto-friendly favorites.
Double up on meat
Include a double serving of chicken, ground beef, brisket, or steak to the bowl, but stay away from the pulled pork; it has 9 grams of net carbs per serving, which is more than double the other meat choices.
Eat your vegetables
The key when including veggies to your meal is sticking with low-carb options like fajita veggies, pickled jalapeños, and also shredded lettuce. Select your favorites or get all three!
Make it cheesy
Pile on the cheese to up the fat content of the meal, but choose the shredded cheese in place of the queso to save carbs.
Top it off
Order any (or all) of the keto-approved toppings: guacamole, sour cream, cilantro, bacon, salsa verde, salsa roja, or pico de gallo. Nice!
