Crispy Cheese Low Carb Keto Tacos Instructions

Taco Filling Instructions

  1. Cook your ground beef or ground turkey first.
  2. Add all the taco meat seasonings. The cocoa powder is optional but it totally enhances the flavors of all the other seasonings!
  3. Continue cooking until ground beef and/or ground turkey is fully browned and cooked.

Taco Shell Instructions

  1. Preheat the oven to 350 degrees before you start.
  2. Using a large baking sheet, cover it with a piece of parchment paper. This prevents the cheese from sticking to the pan. Don’t skip this part.
  3. Place six circles of shredded cheese, roughly about 1/4 cup cheese in each circle.
  4. Bake for 10-15 minutes or until golden brown. If the cheese bakes too long, it will be extra crunchy. If the cheese bakes to little, it won’t form a shell properly. You want to make sure the cheese is somewhat brown on the outsides and bubbly in the center. This is the best way I can explain it.
  5. Allow cooling for a minute, then carefully drape the taco shells over a wooden spoon to harden while they cool completely.

Taco Assembly Instructions

  1. Use a taco holder stand to keep the taco shell in the right position, add lettuce, taco meat filling, cherry tomatoes, and cheese.
  2. Drizzle sour cream over the top to enjoy the perfect crispy cheese keto tacos!
