A big thank you to Georgina from Step Away From The Carbs for guest posting for Wholesome Yum while I take a break to spend time with my newborn. Today Georgina is sharing her amazing keto low carb breakfast fajitas recipe!
If you’ve got friends and family staying with you, then these low carb breakfast fajitas will make the perfect sociable brunch! Fajitas are one of those meals that I serve to pretty much anyone. They can fill them exactly as they like!
I once had two of my husband’s work colleagues to dinner: one ate meat and no vegetables, and the other was a vegetarian who ate no cheese! The answer? Fajitas, because they could just fill them with whatever worked for them.
Breakfast is no different. We all wake at different times and in different ways, and fancy different things. Breakfast fajitas are the perfect solution. Want spice? Add jalapeños! Need a meat feast? Go crazy on the bacon!
The ingredient you’ll have to think about most here is the tortillas. If you like to make your own, then you could try Maya’s three ingredient low carb tortillas with coconut flour. If you want to cut some corners, and your diet allows, you could use store-bought low carb tortillas instead. (I have a handy comparison of six of the main brands for your reference.) And remember, if you’re the only one low-carbing in your brunch party, you can provide regular tortillas for everyone else, and just keep yours separate.
The rest of the ingredients you’ll need for these awesome breakfast fajitas are already low carb: scrambled eggs, bacon, cheese, avocado, sour cream, jalapeños (pickled or fresh), and salsa. Plus, you can totally choose which of those elements you would like to provide for everyone. Or, go mad and include them all!
To be honest, this isn’t so much of a recipe, but an organizational list of preparing components. Ingredients like the shredded cheese, jalapeños, sour cream, salsa and avocado slices are simple. They just need to be prepared and transferred to bowls.
That leaves the tortillas, eggs, and bacon. The tortillas are easy: they just need half a minute in the microwave to warm them through.
The eggs? Scramble these however you like. I prefer to add a little heavy cream when I whisk the eggs together. If you want to, you could add extra shredded cheese to your scrambled eggs for more low carb goodness.
Lastly, the bacon. Fry it, broil it, even microwave it! Although I recently bought a cute rack for microwaving bacon, my preferred method is to broil it on a wire rack placed on top of a foil-lined baking sheet. But if you’re a low-carber, you know bacon and what works best for you!

Preheat the oven broiler. Place a baking rack over a baking sheet and arrange the bacon slices on the rack. Cook for 3-5 minutes on each side.
- Meanwhile, whisk together the eggs, heavy cream, sea salt, and black pepper. Cook scrambled eggs in a skillet.
- Place the cheese, sour cream, salsa, and jalapenos into bowls. Transfer the eggs to a serving bowl to keep warm.
- Pat dry the cooked bacon with paper towels. Cut the slices in half to fit better into the small tortillas.
- If not cooking the tortillas fresh (or if using store bought tortillas), place the tortillas on a plate and warm them in the microwave for 30 seconds, turning the stack over halfway through cooking.
- Serve the warm tortillas, cooked bacon, scrambled eggs, shredded cheese, sour cream, sliced avocado, jalapenos, and salsa in bowls. Assembled fajitas with fillings to your liking!
