Preheat oven to 350F.
Combine all taco seasoning ingredients in a bowl and set aside.
If you are opting to use a premixed seasoning you can use about 1/2 a cup of that premixed taco seasoning, otherwise just mix up all the taco seasoning ingredients above.
In a skillet, brown the ground beef until it is no longer pink. Add the taco seasoning to the beef and stir until it is fully combined. Spread the beef mixture in a pie pan.
In a large bowl, whisk together the eggs, heavy cream, and minced garlic.
Pour the egg mixture over the beef mixture in the pie pan, and then top with shredded cheddar cheese.
Bake the taco casserole for 35 minutes. It is done when the center is set and the cheese is lightly browned around the edges.
Remove the keto taco casserole from the oven and let it sit for a few minutes before serving.
Serve it with your desired toppings, such as sour cream, sauce, green onions, or anything else you prefer.
  • To ensure the dish is cooked perfectly, you can check the center of the casserole with a toothpick or knife. If it comes out clean, the casserole is done. If there is still some raw mixture, bake it for an additional 5-10 minutes.
  • For added flavor and texture, you can top the casserole with some diced avocado, fresh cilantro, or sliced jalapenos before serving.
  • For leftovers, you can store the casserole in an airtight container in the refrigerator for up to 3 days. Reheat it in the oven or microwave before serving.
  • Enjoy your delicious and keto-friendly taco casserole! Don't forget to share your own variations and toppings in the comments.

Variations and customization on Meat Base

  • This keto taco casserole is a great way to use leftover ground beef from taco night. If this is you, skip the taco seasoning step and use the leftover seasoned beef instead.
  • If you're not a fan of ground beef, you can easily make this keto casserole with ground turkey or chicken instead.
  • For a vegetarian version of this taco casserole, try using crumbled tofu or diced vegetables instead of ground beef.

Variations and customization on Toppings

  • Add diced onions, bell peppers, or sliced jalapenos for a little extra flavor. You can add some guacamole, sour cream, extra cheese, cilantro, or salsa. The world is your oyster, so let your creativity run wild with this one!
  • Try topping this taco casserole with crushed pork rinds before baking for a little extra crunch.


  • You can store the keto taco casserole in the refrigerator for up to 3 days or in the freezer for up to 3 months. If you are doing the latter, thaw in the fridge overnight before reheating.
