Notes For This Recipe

The Primal Kitchen Ranch dressing is very good on this recipe.  It is full of good ingredients, with avocado oil and healing spices.  If you don’t have this or don’t want ranch than just leave it out.

For the Mexican spice blend, you can make the following:

½ tsp of ground coriander

1 ½ tsp of ground cumin

2 tsp chili powder

Sea salt and fresh ground black pepper

You can top this recipe with lime juice, fresh cilantro and avocado or guacamole.  You can also use coconut flour wraps with this which taste amazing and are low-carb and ketogenic.

Dr Jockers Comments

This chicken fajita salad recipe is a tasty, low-carb, ketogenic style dinner meal that your family will love.  I always recommend a dinner with healthy fats, clean proteins, anti-oxidants and fiber.  I also love a lot of color and flavor in my recipes and this one really hits home.

You can use either olive oil, avocado oil or XCT oil for this recipe.  I prefer to use the XCT oil, which raises up ketones within the body quickly for many of my salads and for cooking.  I typically add olives or avocado or guacamole to my recipes to add in more good fats and I think the best benefit of olive and avocado is in the whole fruit and not just the concentrated oil.

XCT oil is also called MCT oil for medium chain triglyceride oil and is derived from coconut but it is concentrated 8 and 10 carbon chain fats that the body metabolizes quickly and forms ketones with.  These ketones help to stabilize blood sugar, reduce inflammation and improve brain function.

I love adding color to my meals in the form of bell peppers which are loaded with vitamin C, and bioflavonoids and relatively low in carbohydrates.  If you are avoiding nightshades, you can avoid these and use cucumbers and radishes instead.

Be sure to look for organic chicken or at the very least naturally raised without hormones and anti-biotics in order to avoid environmental toxins and get the best possible meat for your body.  If you are having trouble finding affordable organic and grass-fed meat products in your local area than you can order through US Wellness Meats here or Slankers here

  1. yeah, I’d better add dressing right before consuming, like guacamole or sliced avocado. Passing for EVO, discreeetly resistant to heat, I thought avocado’s fatty acids were easily degraded with high temp, maybe I’m wrong..thanks for posting
