Keto Taco Casserole

A cheesy keto taco casserole that is excellent for family dinners and potlucks alike!

Keto Taco Casserole

Ingredients

2 lbs ground beef or turkey

1/2 large onion, diced

2 cloves garlic, minced

1/2 large bell pepper, diced

1 packet of taco seasoning (or 4 tablespoons of homemade taco seasoning)

4 eggs

2 C. Mexican cheese, shredded

Directions

Preheat the oven to 350°

1. In a skillet heated on medium-high heat, cook the ground beef with the green peppers, onions, and garlic. Once the beef is no longer pink, drain the excess oil using a strainer and return the beef mixture back to the pan. Stir in the taco seasoning.

2. Transfer the beef mixture to a casserole dish and spread it out evenly. In a small bowl, combine the eggs and half of the shredded cheese. Stir the mixture until the eggs are lightly beaten. Next, pour the egg mixture evenly over the beef into the casserole dish. Mix the casserole a bit to ensure that the cheese gets in between the meat.

3. Top the casserole evenly with the remaining cheese, and bake uncovered in the preheated oven for twenty-five minutes, or until the cheese is melted and bubbly. Once the casserole is done, remove it from the oven and top with your favorite keto taco toppings like tomatoes, green onions, and sour cream. Serve immediately.

4 Tbsp. water

1/2 tsp. salt

1/2 tsp. garlic powder
