Keto Cheesy Taco Beef Casserole: Simple and Quick to Assemble for a Hearty, Delicious Meal the Whole Family will Love
I don’t know about you but I am always happy to find an easy meal.
I also love one that I can mix up, put in the oven and then set the table and have the prep dishes washed before we sit down to eat. That makes clean up so easy.
This Keto Cheesy Taco Beef Casserole is that kind of meal.
Just steam the cauliflower rice, cook the ground beef (or better yet, use some you already have cooked in your freezer) and mix them with six more things, dump it in all casserole dish and bake.
Dinner is ready!
A note on the taco seasoning;
I use this homemade recipe. It is 2 net carbs for 1 Tbsp instead of 3 carbs for 2 tsp of the packaged stuff. (See that post for more detail on that.)
For each pound of meat cooked, that is a savings of 6 net carbs! The nutrition information below is calculated using this homemade mix.
It is really NOT hard, expensive or time consuming to mix up your own seasoning mix so don’t let that stop you from saving those carbs (and other yucky stuff added to the bought stuff); check out the above post to see how easy it is!

There is cauliflower in it already but we sometimes add a green vegetable too. It is pictured with Roasted Parmesan Asparagus, one of our favorite sides with anything.

4 oz cream cheese

½ cup chicken broth
10 oz can rotel diced tomatoes with green chilies
