Keto Taco Pie

I decided to switch it up for Taco Tuesday and make a pie instead of our usual Taco Salad (which we love). I use a very similar crust that I make for my Keto Pumpkin Pie, but I cut back on the coconut flour and added some taco seasonings into the dough to make it a little more savory, and it turned out great!! The pie itself is pretty basic, but the magic really happens when you start adding all of the toppings!

Ingredients:

CRUST:

  • 1 stick butter, melted
  • 1/2 cup coconut flour
  • 1 1/2 cup almond flour
  • 1 tsp Himalayan salt
  • 1 egg
  • 1 tbsp taco seasoning
  1. Mix dry ingredients with the melted butter in a medium size bowl.
  2. Add 1 egg and mix into a dough ball.
  3. Spread dough into a pie pan with your hands, making sure you press dough up the edge.
  4. Pre bake pie crust before adding the filling in the oven at 375* for 10-15 minutes or until golden brown.
  5. Set aside.

FILLING:

  • 1 lb 80/20 ground beef
  • 3 cloves garlic, minced
  • 1/2 yellow onion, chopped
  • 4 oz cream cheese, softened
  • 1 tbsp taco seasoning
  • 1 tsp salt
  • 1 tsp pepper
  • 1 cup shredded cheese
  • 1 cup pico, or salsa, or a can of diced tomatoes
  • 1 tbsp extra virgin olive oil
  1. Add olive oil to a large, nonstick or cast iron skillet and heat over medium high heat.
  2. Add ground beef and break it up with a wooden spoon, sprinkle with salt, pepper, and taco seasoning.
  3. Then, add garlic and onion to the pan and continue to brown the meat. Then add the salsa and stir.
  4. Once the meat is fully cooked, turn the heat down to medium-low and add cream cheese, stir until melted.
  5. Remove from heat and add to the pie crust.
  6. Top with shredded cheese and put the pie in the oven until cheese melts, about 15 minutes.
  7. Remove from oven and let cool for 5 minutes before slicing and adding optional toppings below.

OPTIONAL TOPPINGS:

  • shredded iceberg lettuce
  • pico de gallo
  • sour cream
  • jalapenos
  • avocado
  • guacamole
  • olives
  • green onion
  • shredded cheese
