Keto Taco Bites Recipe
Easy dinner, snack, or appetizer recipe – Keto Taco Bites!
When the whole family loves it – even the picky ones – it is a recipe worth getting excited about. Yes, this is a keto and low carb recipe, but anyone that likes tacos will like it! In fact, my kids that don’t like tacos, actually do like these mini keto taco bites. 😉 (ps – if you’re curious about the Ketogenic lifestyle, read this post Cathy wrote about why she decided to do the Keto Diet and her beginners tips for the Keto Diet!)
It is fast and easy to mix up your own homemade taco seasoning! I use this taco seasoning recipe all the time. It is nice to have control over what exactly is in there and it tastes good too.
This keto recipe calls for only four ingredients and they are simple ones too – cheese, eggs, ground beef, and taco seasoning. Even with such simple ingredients, the mini taco bites are surprisingly delicious! Adding a yummy taco garnish makes them even better, of course.
If you’re looking for a good deal on ground beef, check if Zaycon offers events in your area. I like ordering ground beef and chicken from them, especially when there’s a promotion going on.
The recipe yields about 36 mini taco bites, so if you only have one mini muffin pan, you may need to work in batches…unless your mini muffin pan is like mine. Yeah, I have what you might call a mega mini muffin pan. I can bake 48 mini muffins (or keto taco bites) at a time! Two mini muffin pans in one. Cool, right? Barely fits in my oven, but it DOES fit. 😉
If you don’t have a mini muffin pan, you can make these in regular muffin pans too… Cathy highly recommends that you use silicone cupcake liners with this recipe. It makes clean up a breeze and you don’t have to deal with muffin sticking to the pans or disposable paper liners!
These keto taco bites freeze well too! Freeze leftovers or make extra for a freezer meal, then just thaw and reheat. FYI – They heat up from frozen in the microwave just like chicken nuggets do, if you’re as familiar with frozen chicken nuggets as I am. 😉
