If you’ve ever tried a low carb diet, you’ve probably experienced problems with hunger and cravings. When you start a low carb diet, your body is in a state of ketosis, where it’s using stored fat as its primary energy source. That means, once you adopt a low carb diet, it’s much easier to lose weight as your body will use fat for fuel. While many low carb diets are well-balanced, others are not. When making a keto diet meal, you often have to eat more fatty foods to achieve the same effect. #####

What are Keto Taco Cups, and how do you make them?

Keto Taco Cups are baked cheese shells that are crunchy on the outside. The shells have the same crunch as conventional taco shells, but none of the carbohydrates!

Keto Taco Cups: How to Make Them

Make the taco cups first. Grate the cheese and divide it into heaps on a parchment-lined baking sheet. If you don’t use the parchment paper, the taco cheese will cling to the pan.

Meanwhile, brown the ground beef and then add all of the vegetables to the filling. Remove the melted cheese from the oven and shape it over the upside-down muffin form. It’s ready to fill and enjoy after it hardens.

Tips

– Cheese cups may be used to create various forms of keto taco bites. To make them resemble like conventional taco shells, fold them over.

– Use a Mexican Style Blend and Monterey Jack Cheese as cheese options.

– Carne Asada, pork carnitas, cooked ground beef, turkey, or chicken are some of the filling options. Alternatively, try roasted red peppers and sautéed mushrooms as a vegetarian alternative.

— Options for toppings include homemade guacamole, pickled jalapenos, chopped red onion, sour cream (or yogurt), fresh cilantro, and extra cheese!
