For the taco shells/tortillas:

  • 1 cup shredded mozzarella cheese
  • 1/2 cup almond flour
  • 2 tablespoons cream cheese
  • 1 large egg
  • Pinch of salt

For the taco filling:

  • 1 pound ground beef or turkey
  • 1 tablespoon taco seasoning (ensure it’s low-carb or make your own with spices like chili powder, cumin, paprika, garlic powder, and onion powder)
  • Salt and pepper to taste
  • Your choice of toppings: shredded lettuce, diced tomatoes, sliced avocado, sour cream, shredded cheese, salsa, etc.


  1. Make the taco shells/tortillas:
    • Preheat your oven to 375°F (190°C).
    • In a microwave-safe bowl, combine the shredded mozzarella cheese and cream cheese. Microwave in 30-second intervals, stirring in between, until melted and well combined.
    • Add the almond flour, egg, and a pinch of salt to the melted cheese mixture. Mix until it forms a dough.
    • Divide the dough into portions and roll each portion into a ball. Place the balls between two sheets of parchment paper and flatten them with a rolling pin until they form thin circles (for taco shells) or oval shapes (for tortillas).
    • Carefully transfer the flattened dough onto a baking sheet lined with parchment paper. Bake for about 8-10 minutes until golden and firm, then shape them into taco shells or tortillas while they’re still warm. Allow them to cool and firm up.
  2. Prepare the taco filling:
    • In a skillet over medium heat, cook the ground beef or turkey until browned. Drain excess fat if needed.
    • Add the taco seasoning and salt and pepper to taste. Cook for a few more minutes until the flavors meld.
  3. Assemble the Keto Tacos:
    • Fill each taco shell or place the filling onto the center of each tortilla.
    • Add your desired toppings like shredded lettuce, diced tomatoes, sliced avocado, sour cream, shredded cheese, salsa, or any other keto-friendly toppings you prefer.
