Keto friendly taco pie

I love Pinterest for all the amazing recipes that you can find.

Tonight I decided to make a keto friendly taco pie.

Ingredients:

  • 1 pound ground beef (I used 80/20%)
  • 1 packet taco seasoning (make sure you read the ingredients as some brands have more carbs than others)
  • 3 green onions thinly sliced
  • 1/4 cup salsa
  • 1 cup Mexican blend cheese finely shredded, quantity divided
  • 4 large eggs
  • 2/3 cup heavy cream

Directions:

  1. Preheat oven to 350º Fahrenheit. Prepare a 9″ pie pan by greasing with butter or spraying with coconut oil.

  2. Heat a large skillet over medium high heat. Cook ground beef, stirring occasionally until browned. Drain beef and add taco seasoning. Set aside and allow to cool while continuing with the next step.

  3. In a medium mixing bowl, whisk together the eggs and heavy cream. Stir in the green onions, salsa, 3/4 cup of the cheese, and the salt.

  4. Stir prepared taco meat into the egg mixture. Pour this mixture into the prepared pie pan. Sprinkle remaining cheese on top.

  5. Bake pie in preheated oven for 35-45 minutes or until the top is brown and the pie is set. Allow to cool for 5 minutes before serving. Serve with your favorite taco toppings. *NOTE: toppings will change the nutrition info.
