INGREDIENTS IN KETO TACO PIE
Ground Beef - about a pound of meat is perfect for this recipe. Use other ground meat if that's what you have available, but beef is traditional.
Taco Seasoning - Use your favorite type or brand here.
Heavy Cream - I always have heavy cream on hand. It's used in so many keto recipes because it's high in fat and low in carbs.
Eggs - Eggs bind your keto taco pie mixture together so it bakes up firm.
Garlic - I never need an excuse to add garlic to a recipe, and here it adds amazing flavor throughout the dish.
Cheddar Jack Cheese - This type of cheese melts beautifully in this recipe, but you could use just cheddar or another type of cheese if you wish.
Salt - Seasoning with salt makes everything a little bit tastier.
Pepper - For the perfect hint of spice.

IS TACO SEASONING KETO?
Many taco seasoning packets that you buy at the grocery store include added starches or flour that is meant to act as a filler and a thickener when making taco meat filling. They sometimes even include sugar.
You can read labels and compare when you’re shopping to try to find the lowest carb seasoning.
You can also make your own taco seasoning - I use this recipe for Keto Taco Seasoning and always keep extra on hand.
CAN YOU FREEZE KETO TACO PIE?
Yes! Cool your pie completely and then wrap to keep it air tight. Freeze for up to 3 months.
To serve, thaw it completely and then re-warm it in a 300F oven for about 15 minutes or until warmed through.
LOW CARB TACO PIE GARNISHES
The best part about this recipe is that while you can enjoy keto taco pie just as it is, you can also top it with lots of low carb garnishes to make it extra good.
These low carb taco pie garnishes are worth adding:
Chopped tomatoes, sour cream, pico de gallo, your favorite low carb salsa, avocado, fresh cilantro, or jalapenos.

HOW MANY CARBS IN KETO TACO PIE
Based on my calculations, each serving of this Low carb pie has 4 grams net carbs. That's not bad for a filling and satisfying meal.
You can reduce the amount of carbs in this dish by making a from scratch taco seasoning as mentioned above.
