These Keto Taco Pies recipe is filled with ground beef, cheese, and tomato and topped with jalapenos and sour cream for a kick of heat. The best part is that you can make them all at once and reheat them for an easy lunch or dinner, or freeze them for a quick dinner on busy weekday nights!

Let’s take some tacos with a keto crust to use in this dish!
You need a keto friendly crust, and for simplicity I chose a store-bought cauliflower crust. Just be careful and pay close attention to the nutritional value of cooked cauliflower skins, as many contain a lot of extra carbohydrates.
Consider using Trader Joe’s cauliflower crusts or Outer Aisle’s keto crusts. I found the Outer Aisle Cauliflower Rinds in the refrigerated section of my local Sprouts Farmers Market.
Keto Taco Pie (with a Cajun twist!)
: 6 SERIES
Preparation time: 20 MINUTES
Cooking time: 25 MINUTES
Total time : 45 MINUTES
A classic Mexican beef and cheese dish given a Cajun twist with Creole spices.
Fill it up:
- 1/4 cup sour cream
- 2 tablespoons chopped black olives
- 1/4 cup fresh tomatoes, diced
- 1/4 cup chopped coriander
- 1/2 avocado, finely chopped
Put oil in a cast iron skillet over medium-high heat.
When the oil sizzles, add the chopped onions, green chilies and pickled jalapenos. Cook until tender and translucent, 2 to 3 minutes.
Add the minced meat and spices to the same pan and cook over medium heat for 5-7 minutes, stirring occasionally. If necessary, drain off the fat. Then stir in half the grated cheese (this is the glue that holds everything together).
Remove the beef mixture from the heat and let cool in a separate bowl. This prevents the eggs from breaking when you add them. While it cools, preheat the oven to 350 degrees. Once cooled, beat the egg with a whisk or fork and add it to the beef mixture while stirring.
Place the cauliflower crust in an empty cast iron skillet. Bake the pie dough for about 5 minutes, so the pie doesn’t get sticky.
Transfer the beef mixture from the bowl to the cauliflower crust in a deep baking dish. Top the pie with the remaining cheese and bake for about 25 minutes, or until golden brown.
Let cool for about 5 minutes before serving and finish with your favorite toppings! Black olives, sour cream, chopped cilantro, avocado and fresh diced tomatoes.
