It’s 6:00 pm on a weeknight. You’re so tired from the work day you can barely see straight. The kids are starting to get restless. The fridge has practically nothing to throw together into an acceptable family dinner. The easy choice would be to order pizza or Chinese. You open the freezer and instantly feel relieved. You have a fabulous Keto Soft Taco Casserole to heat up and placate your starving family. Problem solved!
This is a recipe to feed the masses. It’s so popular in my family they tend to forget the rest of the meal prepped recipes exist, and it’s one of the easiest one to make! I often double this recipe to keep up with the demand. The carb count is surprisingly low even though this casserole includes tortillas. I use these handy, amazing Mission Foods Carb Balance Whole Wheat Soft Taco tortillas or La Tortilla Factory Whole Wheat Low Carb tortillas to keep it Keto friendly. I honestly can’t tell the difference between this and a regular tortilla (neither can my 12 year old!).

Tips for Making Keto Soft Taco Casserole
This casserole makes a great base that be dressed up with lettuce, sour cream, and hot sauce. My favorite is Taco Bell Sauce! This dish is very mild so it’s kid friendly. If you need a quick recipe for a potluck or get-together, make, bake, cover and freeze in a 13×9 foil pan. Then, put in your fridge in the night before to thaw and reheat it just before heading to the party. Right before serving, top with some fresh cilantro and lime juice for some extra flavor. You can also substitute ground chicken or ground turkey for the ground beef. You can’t mess up this dish! I hope your family enjoys this dish as much as mine.
