Hi there fit foodies! Are you fond of taco salads but on a keto diet? Good news! Here’s an easy keto-friendly recipe for a taco salad bowl that you can enjoy every day of the week!
Tacos are a classic Mexican dish that originates from Texas during the 1960s. It’s a common form of antojitos (literally means “little cravings”), or Mexican street food, which have spread around the world.
It can be made with a variety of fillings including cheese, vegetables, seafood, chicken, pork, and beef, allowing for great versatility and diverse flavor combinations.
This is also topped with different condiments. Some of which include sour cream, guacamole, salsa, chiles, tomatoes, onion, lettuce, and other vegetables.
In this low-carb recipe, you don’t need tortilla chips or even taco shells. Instead, cauliflower rice can be a good pair along with a homemade taco seasoning. This makes the dish rich in protein, potassium, dietary fibers, Vitamin A, Vitamin C, Calcium, and Iron.
The meal prep of this low carb taco varies. You can include select meats with higher percentages of either fat or leaner meat such as ground beef. Ground veggies can also serve as a substitute to add more nutrition to the dish.

Keto Taco Bowl Recipe
Ingredients for 4 bowls:
- 2 slices bacon
- 3 cups raw Brussel sprouts, thinly chopped
- juice from 1 lime
- 1 tablespoon avocado oil (or olive oil)
- 1 tablespoon garlic, minced
- 1/3 cup red onion, diced
- 20oz 85% ground beef
- Note: for keto, select meats with a higher percentage of fat, but you can make this recipe leaner as well by using leaner ground meat.
- Substitute: veggie ground
- 1 teaspoon cumin
- 2 teaspoons smoked paprika
- 1 teaspoon chili powder
- fresh cilantro, chopped
- fresh lime or lemon to taste
- sea salt & pepper to taste
- 2 large ripe avocados
- Garnish (optional)
- 2% Greek yogurt
- shredded cheddar
- pico de gallo
Set a nonstick skillet on medium heat, add bacon. Cook until crispy, about 5 minutes. Remove the slices from the skillet.
Add shredded Brussels sprouts to the skillet and cook for 3 to 5 minutes, until the outside edges are seared. While it cooks, add lime juice and a pinch of sea salt & pepper. Remove from the skillet.
Add olive oil, garlic and red onion. Caramelize the onions for 3 minutes before adding the ground meat.
Chop up the meat in the skillet for about 2 minutes, then add the seasonings. Continue chopping and cooking until the meat is no longer pink, about 5 minutes. Season to taste with sea salt & pepper, cilantro and lime or lemon juice.
Slice the avocados in half and remove the pits. Using a fork, mash up the flesh of the avocado, then form a large hole/dip inside the avocado for the filling.
Add sauteed Brussel sprouts and meat, then top with garnish.
