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.

Ingredients

For the ground beef filling

To serve

Special equipment

Instructions

For the keto tortillas

  1. Make a batch of our keto tortillas and preheat oven to 350°F/180°C.

  2. 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!

  1. 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.

  2. 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

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

    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.
