Keto Taco Seasoning & Cheese Shells Recipe

Taco Tuesday is a big day in our house, but because my husband and I eat keto, we have not been able to have the shells for a while now. For the longest time we enjoyed our tacos as a salad, which was fine, but then we decided to make our own shells from shredded Parmesan cheese. This is actually super easy, although it seems intimidating at first. We will never go back to the ways of just a taco salad! We have also come up with our own recipe for taco seasoning to avoid all of the carb fillers that are in pre-packaged seasoning.

  • 1.5 lbs ground beef

  • 1 tablespoon onion powder
  • 1 teaspoon garlic powder
  • 2 tablespoons oregano
  • 1 tablespoon paprika
  • 1.5 teaspoons red pepper

You will also need two small bowls, to help form the shells, as well as any taco toppings you like. We use spinach, tomatoes, Franks hot sauce, and shredded cheddar cheese.
