My kids love tacos, and this Keto Taco Bake had them raving last night. Now I will say this thing is like a fat bomb explosion so if you having a hard time reaching your fat goals each day, wow, add this to your diet and you will NOT have that problem anymore.
Seriously, this recipe weighs in at 47 grams of fat. If you’re new to keto, while the actual fat won’t give you a heart attack hearing that number just might! 😉 Remember, we don’t count calories around here, and this has worked for us. My entire family has managed to lose the weight and keep it off thanks to keto. We really don’t even have to worry about our numbers anymore because as long as we keep an eye on the foods we eat we are always in maintenance mode, which is an awesome place to be in.
Keto Taco Bake Recipe:
It’s amazing when you finally reach your goal, and you no longer have to be as strict as you once were. It’s also awesome when you do slip up, and you start to see the horrible side effects for yourself, and you can prove both to yourself and others that this lifestyle does work. For example. If I eat any kind of bread at all, I will break out every single time. I can go months without one pimple. Not one. The moment I decide to cave and try the pizza my carb loving husband tells me will change my life (he’s always wrong, it taste boring and plain every time) I break out. One slice, that’s all it takes for my body to show the signs that beg me not to mistreat it again.
I appreciate that to be honest and I love that I can eat one slice and say this tastes like crap and it has no control over me. Back in the day, I loved pizza. I can honestly say I don’t love any food. Okay, maybe I still love ice cream. It’s cream; I can’t stop loving cream.
Keto Taco Seasoning:
Oh, and before we move on, you have to buy this taco seasoning right now. If you don’t already use Flavor God’s Taco Tuesday, GET IT! Flavor God has 0 carbs, people. ZERO. Did I mention it’s also gluten-free, sugar-free, chemical and filler free? It’s awesomesauce only more like awesomepowder. You can make your own taco seasoning and change the carb counts below, or you can use packets, but they are very high carbs. So you will need to adjust the numbers below for that especially since this recipe would take two packets.
The bad news for me is that I was actually out of Taco Tuesday when I made this recipe so I had to resort to a packet, thankfully I did have some GMO free taco seasoning on hand, but I was still pretty disappointed. I was also out of Mozzarella or I would have used that instead. See, bloggers don’t always have it together ;). Thankfully I just placed an order for more along with Ranch, Pizza, and Ketchup! I can’t wait to share my recipes using these seasonings with you!
Let’s dig into this fatty recipe, shall we?
Important Note: I would not recommend making this to serve as leftovers. The soggy pork rinds are kind of gross the next day! Yuck! My kids didn’t think so, but my husband complained!
If you hate the idea of soggy pork rinds you can always put the pork rinds on TOP!
