How do you eat Keto at a Mexican restaurant?

There are lots of easy Keto options at a Mexican restaurant. One of my favorite things to order is fajitas (shrimp, chicken, or steak) without the taco shells. You will get a delicious meal and lots of Keto friendly topping options.

5 ingredient Keto Mexican casserole recipe:

Start by cooking the ground beef in a skillet over medium heat for 7 to 10 minutes. During this time go ahead and preheat your oven to 400 degrees Fahrenheit.

Can you eat ground beef on Keto?

Yes ground beef is Keto approved. In fact most seafood and meats are allowed on Keto and also low in carbohydrates.

Add 4 tablespoons of taco seasoning to the ground beef before it’s almost done. You can use low carb taco seasoning or make your own using my recipe here. (Do not add any liquid with the seasoning.)

Drain the excess grease from the ground beef. You can also use a paper towel to help blot any excess.
