Is Taco Salad Keto Friendly?

Taco salad in a restaurant can have so many hidden carbs, even though you only see meat and veggies. Many carbs can come from the various sauces, taco seasoning packets, or nachos crumbs on top. 

But if you make a Homemade Taco Salad following our recipe, there will be nothing that can raise your blood sugar or ingredients you would not know anything about. 

And you can still fully enjoy it with sauce, nachos, and even this beautiful edible Keto Mexican Salad Bowl. 

How to make Taco Salad Keto Friendly?

Simply follow our recipe, and you will end up with a delicious Taco Tuesday dinner full of flavor, wholesome ingredients, and minimal carbs possible.

How many Carbs are In Keto Taco Salad?

I have calculated the nutrition of an entire salad together with an edible Taco Salad Bowl for you to have a complete and filling, wholesome meal.

For a portion, this perfectly Healthy Mexican Keto Salad comes to 7 grams of carbohydrates and 2 grams of fiber, bringing the portion to a perfect 5 grams of Net Carbs. 

How awesome is that?

What can you use as toppings for Taco Salad?

You can use various ideas, from fresh cilantro to Homemade Keto Nachos crumbled on top as a topping.

But just to give you a bit more ideas, here goes my suggestions:

STEP-BY-STEP INSTRUCTIONS ON MAKING A PERFECT KETO TACO SALAD BOWL

First Step: Ingredients for Edible Keto Salad Bowl

Prepare your ingredients to make an edible Keto Bowl for your Salad as the first step. 

If you would like to skip bowl making, you can just bear in mind that I have included the nutrition of the whole salad together with the bowl as well. 

As I always suggest, buy blocks of cheese and grate your cheese at home to avoid all the extra starches and carbohydrates you might have in store-bought grated cheese.

I have added protein powder to make the bowl extra crunchy. Protein Powder helps hold the entire bowl together, and it also stays crunchy, leaving it on your kitchen counter for a few extra days.

Second Step: Prepare and Bake Salad Bowl

In a glass bowl, mix all 3 ingredients. 

Using a round shape Pizza Stone or a baking sheet covered with Parchment paper, gently spread the mixture into a rounded shape. 

Place into the oven and bake at 180 Celsius or 350 Fahrenheit for approximately 10 minutes, just until the corners start browning.

Third Step: Shape Edible Bowl

While your cheese bowl is baking in the oven, prepare 2 Bowls different sizes. Make sure the size is suitable to be able to place one bowl into another one. 

In the video, I have placed a smaller bowl on top of the Glass, so it is a little elevated. 

Gently spray smaller bowl from the outside and bigger bowl from the inside. 

Once your Keto Edible bowl is baked, take it from the oven, gently peel it from the parchment paper, and place it on top of the smaller bowl. 

Using your hands, gently shape and, using a bigger bowl, press on it to fully shape the bowl. Leave both bowls on top of each other with the Cheese edible bowl in the middle and let it cool down until the edible cheese bowl is hard and ready to be served.

Fourth Step: Ingredients for Taco Salad

Prepare all your ingredients for Low-Carb Taco salad. Make sure your tomatoes, olives, avocado, and onions are cut into smaller pieces. 

Lettuce could be precut, leaving the small leaves extra to fill the bottom.

Fifth Step: Preparing Taco Ground Beef 

Heat your skillet over medium-high, add oil, and cook the lean ground beef for approximately 10-15 minutes.

Once you see the color change and get brown ground beef, add taco seasoning, mix it thoroughly and let it cook for an additional 10 minutes.

When your taco meat is fully cooked, you can place it into the bowl for assembling or leave it in the pot.

If you like your taco Low-Carb Salad with warm or cold meat, you should leave it for a while to cool.

Sixth Step: Assembling the Taco Salad

Now is the time to start assembling the salad.

As you see in the video, I have added first whole lettuce leaves and then precut lettuce to protect all the other moist ingredients such as Taco Ground Beef or any dressing from softening the actual edible bowl. 

As next, add your Taco Mexican Ground beef, followed by tomatoes and onion.

Seventh Step: Finishing Taco Salad

Continue assembling, adding pieces of avocado and olives.

Top it up with grated cheese. In our case, I have added cheddar. 

Sprinkle with Salsa Dressing if you like, or any of the toppings I have mentioned at the beginning of the post.

Tips and Tricks:

  • Nutrition Calculation – As the entire recipe includes making an edible bowl, I added this into the calculations. 
  • No Pizza Stone – I have picked up my Pizza Stone because of its perfect shape to make the edible salad bowl. But just in case you do not have one, you can simply use a baking sheet covered with parchment paper, where you just spread the cheese mixture into a round shape. 
  • Best lettuce – I have found iceberg salad to be the crunchiest and perfect for this taco salad, but you can choose your preferred lettuce. 
  • Dressing – If you are not planning to finish the entire Taco salad, I suggest sprinkling the dressing individually, as it would be much easier for you to store the rest.

FREQUENTLY ASKED QUESTIONS AND ANSWERS

How do you store Low-Carb Taco Salad?

It would be best to store the edible Salad Bowl on the kitchen counter and the salad mixture in the fridge. 

The edible bowl can moisten a bit while stored in the fridge.

I also recommend storing this Low-Carb salad without any dressing. 

How do you store an edible Salad Bowl?

Making this edible low-carb salad bowl with protein powder gives you the advantage of staying crispy for a few days even if you leave it on the kitchen counter. 

Can you freeze Taco Salad?

I would not recommend freezing your Taco salad, as most ingredients are fresh. 

You can make Taco Ground beef in advance and freeze it. It could be a perfect base for your Keto Meal Plan.

You can also prepare your creamy salsa dressing in advance, but the actual bowl and whole salad should always be fresh or at least a few days from the fridge.
