Keto Taco Skillet

In the past month, my Keto journey has been pretty great. Of course there are times where I still crave carbs and sugar, but as the days pass the cravings subside. The one thing I miss the most though… Tacos! I am a sucker for Mexican food in general, and used to live for Taco Tuesday. So one night, in my quest to fulfill my deepest taco craving, I created this Keto Taco Skillet in the hopes that it would be just as delicious as it sounded in my mind. My mind did not let me down either. It was super simple, low carb, and completely fulfilled my urge to gorge myself on tacos without breaking my daily carb intake. So if you want to recreate this low carb Keto taco skillet for yourself, keep reading and grab the printable recipe at the bottom!

Low Carb Keto Approved Taco Skillet

Tacos are the food that makes my soul sing. They are delicious, easy to make, and inexpensive. It literally may have hurt my soul to realize I can’t partake in my favorite weekly meal now that I am doing the Keto diet. Fortunately, with some foresight and creativity, this Keto taco skillet came into existence. It has everything I love about traditional tacos without the carbs that make me bloat up like a beached whale.

A wonderful bonus is that my two kids and my husband loved this recipe as well! I was doubtful that they would accept it with as much love as I had. The main reason I was nervous is due to the cauliflower rice. It isn’t something we have really eaten before, and I wan’t sure how the flavor would translate and change within the meal. Honestly, I was a bit convinced that the flavor of the cauliflower would overpower the dish and give it an odd aftertaste and texture… Thankfully I was wrong! Once it is cooked into the dish, you can’t even tell that there is any cauliflower in there at all.

Another beautiful thing about the Keto taco skillet is that you can easily customize it to your personal tastes. I love onions, green peppers and fresh tomatoes… but you can add in or leave out any veggie that you want. I was thinking next time I will try it with mushrooms as well. Of course you can then top it with fresh avocado and sour cream, really bringing this dish together.
