Keto Mexican Tacos with Cheese Shells
Who said that you cannot eat tacos on keto? This one is a delicious recipe for making really delicious Mexican tacos. We are going to replace the regular flour used to make tortillas with crunchy cheese shells.
In this particular recipe, we use cheddar cheese to make the shells. For topping, we cook ground beef and bacon then add cubed avocado, tomato, onion, lettuce and mayonnaise or sour cream (optional) on the taco.
You can make square cheese shells and serve the topping on the top like the photo below.
You can make crunchy taco cups or bend the shells to make it look exactly like the taco shells.
For more extra flavors, you can add fresh or pickled jalapeno slices and coriander leaves.
You can also use chicken meat as topping, blend avocado with lime juice, sour cream and salt to make the sauce, and use Mexican cheese for the shell like this photo (shared by itsBrittanybihh_).
Let's Ketofy It!
First, cook the meat: In a hot pan over medium high-heat, add oil in then saute onion and garlic for a minute. After that, add ground beef in and brown it for 5-7 minutes until cooked. Add salt and pepper as well as taco seasoning to taste. Stirring occasionally. Once cooked, remove and set aside.
In the meantime, we prepare the toppings: Fry or bake 1 slice of bacon until it’s crispy then cut it into small bits. Chop fresh onion, tomato and avocado into small cubes as well.
Next, make the taco shells: In a non-stick skillet over medium-high heat, add cheese in. Once it’s melted and become golden at the bottom, flip it carefully and cook the top side until they’re brown.
Once the cheese is crispy and golden on both sides, remove and shape it into a taco shape while it’s still warm and bendable. You can use your hand to shape it, or any kitchen tool you have.
Finally, add the cooked ground beef fillings and the prepared toppings on. You can add mayonnaise, guacamole, sour cream or any low carb sauce you like. You can also add a few slices of jalapenos to make it spicy. Enjoy!
