These keto taco cups are delicious, full of flavour and work well as a quick dinner recipe, or even a meal prep idea suitable for the whole family.
There are a few key ingredients that make these taco cups keto. Rather than using a tortilla shell which has loads of carbs, this recipe uses Parmesan shells to add the ground meat mixture to.
Keto Taco Cups
There is nothing cheaper than putting together some ground meat and a few spices to create a dish that’s packed with protein and lots of healthy fats. Try adding a garnish of avocado and tomatoes to give this dish a boost of freshness and colour.
Using Parmesan cheese as a base means you can have a salty, crisp outer layer that crunches like a taco shell but doesn’t contain anywhere near as many carbohydrates. As a result, you will be able to stay in a steady state of ketosis to allow your body to burn fat.
The cheese cups need to be cooked in a tray that has heatproof sections so that the cheese can harden into a cup shape while cooling down. Cupcake or muffin trays are the best for this type of thing.
Instead of using ground pork, you can use any type of ground meat you like. Beef, chicken, lamb, and mushrooms all make great substitutes depending on what you can eat according to your diet.
Sour cream is a delicious topping, but feel free to top with extra cheese, a little Greek yogurt, or even yogurt mixed with garlic and cucumber for more of a Lebanese feel.
Once the cheese hardens, the cups are solid enough to pick up and tackle in a few bites.
You can add any toppings you like, but steer away from the beans and sweet sauces that are typically paired with a traditional taco.
