With (extra crisp!) tortilla cups!

You’ve met our 15-minute keto tortillas already right?! Well, naturally they make the most awesome low carb taco bowls! Easy, delicious, a meal-prep ideal!

And for the filling?! I went with a simple (yet incredibly flavorful!) ground beef with taco seasoning. Feel free to whip up a large batch, freeze away, and use for all your keto Mexican dreams (burritos, nachos etc!).

Oh! And be sure to go crazy on the toppings (taco bowl rule right?!). I went for crema (sour cream), queso (ahem feta because cotija couldn’t be found… but feel free to use cheddar too!), a spicy salsa and avocado slices.

ps. if dairy free, I highly suggest incorporating some roughly chopped toasted nuts into the mix (think pine nuts or almonds). Sounds weird I know, but promise they add a wonderful depth of flavor and texture!

The Keto Taco Seasoning

You’ve got two options here! Either buy a ready-made mix such as this one… but note that I haven’t found one yet that doesn’t have maltodextrin.

So you can simply mix your own, and get full control according to your taste buds (what I do!).

Feel free to adjust quantities to taste, but taco seasoning is simply a mixture of:

A batch yields 4 tablespoons (=1/4 cup) and will be good for 1 pound of ground beef.

Top Tips!

Now, I also like to cook my beef with a little fresh onion for an extra flavor boost. So once the onion begins to caramelize, I heat up a little bit more oil and add in the taco seasoning so the spices bloom in the hot oil (and release a tonne of flavor!).

Then in goes the beef and, near the end, the black olives. I know most people will do it the other way around and add the taco seasoning at the very end… but imo you truly get incredible flavor by blooming the spices in hot oil first (pretty much always done in Indian cuisine… see butter chicken!).

Oh! And if you’re looking to save some time (and carbs!) feel free to just leave out the onion and rely on the taco seasoning.

Instructions
 

For the keto tortillas

  • Make a batch of our keto tortillas and preheat oven to 350°F/180°C.
  • Shape the taco bowls by placing the tortillas into the fluted bolds (or muffin tray!). Make sure the tortillas are warm so they don't break. Bake for about 15 minutes, or until crisp, while you cook the beef.

Cook the beef!

  • Heat up oil in a skillet over medium heat. Add in the onion and cook, stirring often, until the onion begins to caramelize (7-10 minutes). Move the onion to the side and heat up a tablespoon of oil, add in the taco seasoning spices (so they bloom briefly in the oil!) and stir everything together.
  • Add in the ground beef and continue to cook, stirring every so often, until the beef is cooked through. If your beef feels dry (usually a lean variety), feel free to add a couple tablespoons of water to keep it nice and moist. I also like to add in my black olives near the end of cooking for an extra flavor boost!

To assemble the taco bowls

  • Add cooked beef to the taco bowls and serve with toppings of choice!

    First I wanna say that I use your recipes more than any other person/website out there ❤️ I love your spirit your presentation all your hard work I really appreciate you !! So two things you didn’t address though many people have asked that I would love to know, NEED to know too. Do you cook the tortillas in a frying pan before you put them in the mold? Or do I just make the door press it in the tortilla press and put it in the mold? Is that how you mean they need to be warm or can you just like leave them in a pan and then put them in the molds? Also How much of your taco seasonings of the recipe in the bottom do you use for this recipe? It’s really not clear. All these recipes are awesome but a lot of work so none of us want to do extra work and fails when we have so much work to do already on this low-carb lifestyle.

  2. Paola,
    I LOVE your recipes. They are wonderful and I have shared with several friends who are going keto. They love them too! I’m making this recipe (taco salad) this weekend and have a question. In giving us the ingredients and recipe for the taco seasoning, you state makes 1/4 cup of seasoning good for 1 lb of ground beef. However, the full recipe above only uses 2 teaspoons of the taco seasoning. Which one is correct: the 1/4 cup or the 2 teaspoons—-big difference. Hope to hear from you soon so I can impress my family with these!!!

    Thanks so much!

    Not sure I understand the cooking steps correctly. When you say make sure the tortillas are warm – do you mean you cook them in a pan first then bake them?

    • Fran says:

      I tried both ways before cooking up the whole batch and I honestly couldn’t tell the difference. The “uncooked” tortilla was easier to form into the muffin shape, so I went with that for the remainder of the batch. Hope that helps!

      A tonne is a metric unit of measurement equal to 1,000 kg. It’s always a good idea to check your facts before attempting to school someone else :).

      Thank you Paola for your always precise and delicious recipes! We love your tortillas – can’t wait to try these.

    This sounds delicious! When I change the recipe from metric to cups, it changes the taco seasoning from 4 tablespoons to 2 teaspoons. I know it should be the same as you said it would be enough for a pound of beef. Can’t wait to make my own seasoning. I’ll let you know how it turns out.

    Can’t wait to try this one! Have made so many of your recipes and have your cookbook.

    We LOVE your tortillas!! Always have a batch handy (I actually bought a tortilla press bc of that recipe😬). My oldest likes to spread them with the “Nutella “ spread that you make, which is also amazing.
    Thank you for all of your hard work!!

    Flavor God has an amazing Taco Tuesday seasoning, as well as many others that do not contain sugar or sugar substitutes.
