If you have hung out on here very much you know I am a fan of casseroles. Especially ones that are loaded with tons of flavor and cheese… lots of cheese. This KETO Taco Bake is all that and MORE!
To add a little something extra to this pretty traditional taco casserole I started with a cream cheese cauliflower rice layer. I love the creaminess and richness it adds to each bite while keeping it all super KETO friendly.
Don’t worry though… the cauliflower layer will not add a ton of work. You can cook it up super fast in a skillet and then stir in the cream cheese making it super creamy! It is the perfect base for the taco meat.

Layer it UP!
On top of the cheesy cauliflower layer comes the meat. For this casserole I used green chiles in with the beef to add in a ton of flavor with the taco seasoning without a ton of carbs. If you wanted to add in some Rotel tomatoes, diced jalapeños or salsa that would all work. Whatever you love feel free to add it in, just add in the carbs (if you’re counting carbs).
On top of the beef comes the cheese… LOTS of cheese. This is one of my most favorite parts of KETO… cheese!!
Top it Off!
To finish it off I topped it with sour cream, some diced tomatoes and chopped fresh cilantro. You could use pico, diced jalapeños, roasted green chiles or whatever you prefer.
The sky is the limit! Get creative, have fun with it!
