For those not familiar with what people following a keto diet are looking for, typically these are low carb dishes that have a higher protein and fat content, no sugar, more vegetables and less starch. With the new menu additions, SanTan Brewing Company is the perfect destination to satisfy everyone's appetite.

"Our menu is packed with amazing dishes that are full of delicious carbs, meats, cheeses, fried items and other usual suspects you’d find at a bar/pub. But, we realized that many of our guests are looking for lighter options and more ways to customize their meal to meet their dietary needs. So, we decided to take a look at our menu for ways to tweak our current offerings to better accommodate guests looking for Keto, low-carb, vegetarian and vegan options," Chris Coglio, Chef, SanTan Brewing Company.

1.5 oz cotija cheese

2 oz pico de gallo

2.5oz Chipotle Lime Ranch

Start with 4oz of fresh chopped romaine lettuce. The taco protein can be anything of your choice as well as the toppings. For this recipe we will be using 4 oz of our slow roasted carnitas over the top. Then garnish with your cold toppings and enjoy. When it comes to dressing stay away from things with high sugar contents and focus on things that are mayo or avocado based for the higher fat content.
