Hearty Keto Taco Pie with a Cajun Twist!
Take your taco night to the next level with this hearty skillet keto taco pie!
This dinner casserole is all about warm comfort flavors! It has a delicious Mexican-inspired trifecta of onions, pickled jalapeño, and green chiles for a spicier kick.
We’re shaking things up though by adding some Cajun seasoning instead of taco spices, and we think your family will love it! Cajun taco pie has lots of satisfying seasoned ground beef and is super easy to make.
When this cheesy keto pie comes out of the oven, it acts as a colorful canvas for all your favorite taco toppings. Yum!
This Cajun keto taco pie is sure to hit the spot and not load up your sink. Make it a one-pan meal by using a 10 inch cast iron skillet so you can cook the meat and veggies, and then also stick it in the oven to finish cooking!
Let’s “taco bout” a keto crust to use for this meal!
You’ll need a keto-friendly crust, and for convenience, I opted for a store-bought cauliflower crust. Just be careful to pay special attention to the nutrition of prepared cauliflower crusts as many have lots of added carbs.
