Keto Taco Pie Recipe

Keto Taco Pie in a mold.

A nourishing keto meal that is ridiculously simple to bake and tastes incredibly amazing too? Beef taco pie, that’s what we are talking about today.

If you have never tried it before, get on it, because time passes too quickly not to enjoy the flavors that are packed into this mouthwatering pie. And the crust? One would hardly believe how amazing a gluten-free crust could (and should!) taste.

Before you get started, it is also good to know, that this meal is completely child-friendly. Serve it with a side of fresh sliced carrots, celery, and cucumber, and everyone will be over the moon – not to mention that they will get plenty of vegetables too.

The cheese gives it an extra kick of awesomeness, but if you are dairy-free, go ahead and try one of your favorite alternatives instead, or fully omit it.

No taco, or taco pie, is complete without a generous spoonful of homemade fiery salsa. Of course, the level of heat is dependent on how much you add to the jalapeño peppers. If it gets to be hotter than you can handle, you can always build up with some Paleo sour cream on top.

And be sure to have some fresh guacamole on hand; after all, avocados are likely to be a staple in your kitchen, so use them when they are good and ready – there is nothing better in the world than eating them with tacos!
