Frequently Asked Questions
Is this tortilla keto friendly?
Some people choose to buy low carb tortillas and include them in their keto friendly meals.
If you choose to have a strict keto meal plan, you can make these keto friendly tortillas homemade.
It’s all about choice.
How cooked is the egg in the center?
The egg is cooked to perfection! It’s just like an over easy egg you would cook in the frying pan. You can adjust the cooking time to add more or less depending on how you like your egg cooked.
Is the bacon crispy?
Yes, the bacon is precooked bacon that I either cook ahead of time during my meal prep for the week or sometimes I purchase Costco’s precooked bacon in a large package.
It’s thin precooked bacon. If you use raw bacon or thicker bacon, you will need to adjust your cook time to longer.
Do you have to add cheese to this taco?
No. You can omit the cheese and keep the same cooking time. It will still be delicious!
Do you have to use a liner in the air fryer?
No. I didn’t use a liner and the tortilla was slightly crispy on the edges which made it taste absolutely delicious.
Can you make this recipe with two eggs?
Yes, you will need to add another minute or two onto the cooking time to make sure both eggs cook properly.

How to Make/Prepare Keto Bacon Egg Cheese Taco in the air fryer
Step 1 – Gather the ingredients first
You will want to make sure you are using precooked bacon. You can cook your bacon ahead of time or purchase precooked bacon at Costco.
Start by layer the ingredients in this way:
Add the tortilla first.
Add the shredded cheese next leaving a center hole for the egg. The cheese holds the egg in place.
If you opt to not use the cheese, just make sure the air fryer basket is held evenly or else the egg will slide right off of the tortilla when you tilt the basket.
Step 2 – Layer the ingredients
Add the egg in the center of the cheese. I leave the egg whole for a creamy yolk when it’s done. You can choose to scramble it by whipping the egg in a cup ahead of time if you prefer.
Add the precooked bacon slices on top of the cheese and surrounding the egg. This placement will allow the egg and bacon to cook perfectly.
Set the air fryer to cook at 350 degrees for exactly 6 minutes.
Use a fork to left the edge of the hot taco to slide in onto your plate. Top with salt and pepper to taste. Allow it to cool slightly so it’s not too hot to touch.
Step 3 – Enjoy the best taco ever that’s loaded with a good amount of protein!
Serve warm with a side of fresh avocado or guacamole.
