Keto Taco Ingredients

The ingredients in this keto taco recipe are pretty standard in most tacos. I have used our Mad Creations NoNut Soft Wraps in this recipe. Simply hung over the oven shelves and baked until crisp they make the perfect taco shell.

Notes

INGREDIENTS AND SUBSTITUTIONS
  1. I use Grove avocado oil in most of the recipes I fry or sautè. It is available in Australian supermarkets. However, you can substitute any olive oil, coconut oil, or good quality animal fats.
  2. Grass fed and organic ground beef/beef mince is best. Substitute any ground meat of preference including plant-based mince for a vegan keto taco recipe. WHole meats can be cut into strips and fried, pulled meats or seafood can also be substituted.
  3. I have provided a link to my homemade Keto Taco Seasoning. However, Mingle do have a delicious Mexican Seasoning available in most supermarkets.
  4. The Mad Creations Wraps are available from select stockists across Australia, New
  5. Zealand, and Singapore. Alternatively, you can use your favourite wrap recipe or cheese taco shells.
    STORAGE
  6. The pre-baked taco shells can be stored in an airtight container for up to 3 days before use.
    NUTRITION
  7. The nutrition has been based the ingredients listed for 4 servings of 2 tacos per serve.

    This is my second time making these tacos. Mine weren’t keto because I didn’t have the keto wraps, so I used regular yellow corn tortillas. I seasoned the beef with my chili, oregano, and cumin seasoning. I can’t wait to make them again.

    I wasn’t sure how the feta would taste on tacos, but it was great! I love this low carb version of tacos as a way to enjoy a staple recipe. Plus the way the shells are warmed on the oven tray was new to me and an easy trick for not dirting a pan.

    1. Megan Mad Creations Hub

      Anything to save on washing up hehe! I am so happy you tried them with the feta and enjoyed it too. Thanks for taking the time to come back and let us know how they went.

    I am new to the keto diet and this is one of my favorite recipes. With just a few tweaks you can have hearty and comforting tacos without losing any flavor but that are keto…so we make these often!
