Okay, friends. I’m here today with something delicious.

I’ve been doing low carb here and there for awhile now and it’s such a great way of eating. I’m always full, satisfied, and I lose weight!

But, I inevitably switch back to all carbs all the time, because…life. And donuts.


Nobody can resist donuts. Nobody.

Anyway, one thing that really helps me stick to the diet for a decent amount of time is to have access to my favorite foods – like low carb casseroles and low carb Mexican food. This Mexican ground beef casserole is one of those things that keeps me happy.

I just whipped up some taco meat, added in some cream cheese for extra goodness, and topped it off with eggs.

I know the eggs sound weird, but this doesn’t taste egg-y at all and it binds everything together into a low carb casserole.

This low carb bacon cheeseburger casserole only has 3 net carbs per serving!! We love this cheesy goodness!

Anyway, if you remember my low carb cheeseburger casserole, you’re going to recognize the inspiration behind this recipe.

This recipe is pretty similar, but it’s full of Mexican flavors!

Because who doesn’t want things that are full of Mexican flavor?

This is a bit higher in carbs than the cheeseburger casserole version, because taco seasoning and spices are full of carbs. So rude of them, right?

You can reduce the seasoning a bit to your taste if you’d like to reduce carbs, but at just 5 net carbs per serving, I think this is just fine!

Besides, you’ll really be satisfied with just the one serving, because this is so full of eggs, beef, and cheese. Super hearty and filling!

This low carb casserole is full of spicy buffalo chicken flavor! #keto #lowcarb
