Enjoy the flavor of tacos stuffed into hand-held chicken fritters, complete with a creamy guacamole dip!
Need a crowd-pleasing meal or snack? These high-protein chicken fritters will do the trick! Lean ground chicken gets seasoned with smoky Mexican spices, then paired with a homemade creamy guacamole dip.
The juicy chicken combines with almond flour and egg to bind the fritters – almond flour is an ideal substitute for breadcrumbs, adding texture without becoming gritty or gummy. All you need from here is a hot cast iron skillet and some avocado oil for frying.

We pack several Mexican-inspired ingredients into these zesty, spicy fritters. Cilantro adds brightness and signature flavor along with cumin and chili powder.
Meanwhile, jalapeño adds heat but you can scrape out the jalapeño seeds to tone it down. Green peppers are another heat-free alternative.
If you’re looking to pack in even more flavor, try adding smoked paprika, onion powder, and dried oregano to the mix.
How To Make The Perfect Guacamole Dip
The accompanying ultra-creamy guacamole dip uses Paleo mayonnaise to achieve a smooth and perfectly dippable texture. Fresh lime juice, too, adds zip while chopped cilantro adds the herby flavor you’d expect from guacamole.
Since avocados tend to brown when mashed, this dip is best enjoyed within a couple of hours of making it. If using a store-bought mayonnaise, be sure to purchase one without any added sweeteners or hydrogenated oils.
Helpful Tips To Get You Started:
- Keep them warm. The cooked fritters can be kept warm in a 200ºF oven while you finish up the remaining batches.
- Try ground turkey. If you don’t have ground chicken, ground turkey works well too.
- Craving a burger? These fritters can be made into larger patties for a burger!
- Made too many? Store leftovers in an airtight container in the refrigerator for up to 5 days.
