Ingredients for Keto Cheese Shell Taco Recipe:

Cheese Shells (makes 6 large shells)
  • 2 cups shredded cheddar cheese

Taco Filling
  • ½ pound ground beef
  • 1 tablespoon sugar-free taco seasoning, homemade (here) or store-bought
  • ¼ cup water

Topping Suggestions
  • 2 cups shredded lettuce
  • 1 medium tomato, diced
  • 1 avocado, sliced
  • ¾ cup sour cream
  • ⅓ cup chopped yellow onions
  • Fresh cilantro, for garnish (optional)

How to make Keto Cheese Shell Taco Recipe:

  1. Preheat the oven to 375°F. Line 2 baking sheets with parchment paper.
  2. Arrange the shredded cheese into 6 piles on the parchment-lined baking sheet, leaving several inches between piles so the shells don’t run together. Bake for 7 to 10 minutes, until the edges start to brown and the cheese is no longer runny.
  3. Meanwhile, prop up a wooden spoon or two kabob skewers, spaced 1 inch apart, with two cups or cans.
  4. Remove the melted cheese rounds from the oven and, while the cheese is still flexible, use a spatula to transfer the cheese and drape over a wooden spoon handle or skewers. Prop up the wooden spoon or skewers with 2 cups or cans. The shell will harden as it cools. Repeat this process with the remaining shells.
  5. In a medium-sized skillet, brown the ground beef, then drain the fat. Add the taco seasoning and water. Stir well, bring to a simmer, and allow to reduce for 3 to 5 minutes. Remove from the heat.
  6. Fill each cheese shell with meat and the toppings of your choice. Garnish with cilantro, if desired.

Tips: These cheese shells are also great filled with eggs, bacon or sausage, and avocado for breakfast tacos!
The shells can be prepared individually in the microwave. Place ⅓ cup of shredded cheese on a piece of parchment paper and microwave on high for 1 minute, then follow Step 3. Repeat with the remaining cheese.
