Keto Taco Shells Recipe - Just 1 Ingredient (1)

Our keto taco shell recipe is perfect for filling with your favorite Mexican toppings.

Mozzarella Cheese makes the best taco shells as it isn’t an oily cheese like cheddar. It makes the shells thicker, sturdy, and crispy. The mild taste of mozzarella cheese is ideal to focus on your fillings – plus, you can always add cheddar cheese inside.

How to Make Keto Taco Shells

  1. Preheat your oven to 200C/390F. Line 2 cookie sheets with parchment paper.
  2. Balance a long-handled wooden spoon over two mugs to set your shells (you can also use aluminum foil to make a mold or line the edge of your dish drainer with parchment paper).
  3. Make eight equal-sized piles of cheese, leaving plenty of room between them for spreading.
  4. Bake for 10-15 minutes until the cheese has stopped bubbling and is brown (you may need to cook one cookie sheet at a time, depending on how much space you have to set the shells). If your cheese isn’t cooked enough, your shells will be chewy instead of crispy.
  5. Use a spatula to gently remove the cheese and place it over the wooden spoon. Leave to cool for 3-5 minutes until set.
  6. Once cooled, fill with your favorite Mexican toppings, such as; Pork Carnitas, Guacamole, and Pico Di Gallo.

  1. I am thinking that sprinking some of the dried taco flavoring sold in packets to flavor meat might be a nice touch to the cheese

  4. Keto Taco Shells Recipe - Just 1 Ingredient (10)
    I’ve been on Keto for a while (have lost 43 lbs in 4 1/2 months) and am enjoying weight loss without the normal diet anxiety (I am a meat eater, so this transition wasn’t too hard). I do miss certain foods though…TACOS is one of them … was a bit skeptical at first, but must admit these were great! I left the first batch in 10 minutes, which for my oven, was probably about 2 minutes too long, they were pretty crunchy, but tasted great with my left-over chicken, a few vegys, a bit of keto ranch and a touch of homemade hot sauce. For the most part tasted like a taco should taste…the cheese shell flavor doesn’t fight with the fillings and the crunch is super. Thanks so much for the recipe…makes this diet even easier to stay with!!
