Keto One Skillet Taco Bake

Keto One Skillet Taco Bake

This Keto One Skillet Taco Bake dish includes great mexican flavor. You won’t notice that taco shells are missing here. The meat is creamy, there’s lots of cheese and sour cream, acidity from the lemon, and cherry tomatoes to add a bit of sweetness to balance out the spice.

This Keto One Skillet Taco Bake recipe is very versatile, as you can make it as spicy or non-spicy as you want. I’d recommend you add at least 1 jalapeno, but feel free to remove the seeds and membrane, if the spice is too much. If removing the seeds, I strongly recommend you wear gloves! You will not want to touch the jalapeno and then accidentally touch your face, etc. Also, if you prefer mild spice, be sure to cook your jalapenos and do not eat them raw! 

However, keep in mind that with the dairy, tomatoes, and lemon involved, a lot of the spice is diluted. We chose to top our Keto One Skillet Taco Bake with fresh cut jalapeno – a very optional step. This results in a more moderate-high spiciness. If you want more spice, you can opt for serrano instead of jalapeno. The carbs are actually slightly lower with serrano, so even better!
