The Best Keto Taco Casserole

This recipe is great because even non-keto folks love it! Sometimes keto recipes seem contrived or forced, but this one just seems natural.


In fact, you probably wouldn’t even guess that this is keto if you didn’t find it here. That means that this is a great recipe to make if you are having friends or family over for a meal and they aren’t into the low-carb lifestyle.


Something else that makes this keto taco casserole great is that you can probably make it right now, without having to make a special trip to the grocery store to get special ingredients. Ground beef, some seasoning, some eggs, and cheese are all you need to whip up this recipe!


Not only is this a great recipe to make if you are having guests over, it is also a great recipe to make if you like to meal prep. Throw this casserole together, cut it into your desired serving size, and toss it in the freezer and you have a meal for every day of the week.


This takes care of the hassle of finding something to make, cooking it, doing dishes, and being tired. Just defrost, reheat, and go! No more hassle.

What Taco Seasoning to Use

We prefer to make our own taco seasoning, just because we like to know exactly what we are eating. So many of the prepackaged seasonings have a ton of ingredients that we can’t recognize or pronounce, and that makes us a little nervous.


However, we also live in the real world. Sometimes, making your own seasoning just isn’t practical. If you don’t have, or don’t want to purchase, all of the individual seasonings that make up a taco seasoning, go ahead and purchase what works best for you.


Just be sure to check the label before you put anything in your cart. Many packaged seasonings include starch and MSG’s, just to name a few of the less desirable ingredients.


While it is best to make your own seasoning, at the end of the day, there are worse things you could do than purchase a prepackaged taco seasoning.

Perfect Sides With Keto Taco Casserole

There are plenty of sides you could serve with this keto taco casserole. We have already talked about what you can put on your casserole, but what about what you can serve with it.


You could make these amazingly crispy Nut-Free Keto Nachos.

If you have low-carb tortillas, you could cut one into squares and fry them in a little bit of avocado oil to make homemade tortilla chips.

Or you can save yourself some work and get these awesome corn and cactus low carb tortilla chips.


If you’re feeling adventurous, you could make some Mexican cauliflower rice! Just use the same spices as you would to make regular Mexican rice but use cauliflower rice instead.

Going to try this tomorrow night just curious if it is eggy, it looks so good.


Wednesday 15th of July 2020

We don't think it is. Let us know what you thought! Thanks for trying it!


Sunday 12th of July 2020

Just made this for the first time! I love how forgiving it is if you don’t have a specific ingredient. I didn’t have any of the peppers on hand - so I just left them out. It turned out phenomenal. Thank you for the taco seasoning recipe as well. I had a pack I had previously bought before going keto and I was astonished at the amount of carbs per serving-not per pack! I definitely recommend trying this and will be trying it again.


Sunday 12th of July 2020

Thank you! We are so glad you enjoyed it.


Sunday 5th of July 2020

It looks like you cooked yours in a cast iron skillet rather than a pie pan as stated in the directions. What size skillet did you use? Would this also work in a large, glass casserole dish?


Sunday 12th of July 2020

It would work in a casserole dish. It is in a 10 inch skillet here.

This was so easy and really good. I made a few changes to the recipe I added grilled red onion and sliced mushrooms to make it heartier. I also changed the red pepper flakes for ground chipotle chili pepper, used pink Himalayan salt, and cut back on the cheddar. I did half cheddar and mozzarella cheese instead. This was great with a dollop of sour cream and a slice of avocado.


Thursday 30th of April 2020

So glad you enjoyed it and made it your own!

Can you substitute the heavy cream with 2% milk?


Monday 30th of March 2020

You can if you would like. Keep in mind that using 2% will raise up the carbs by quite a bit, as well as added sugar.
