Browned Meat

Keto Taco Salad

Update: This recipe is now on the Caveman Keto YouTube Channel.  Check out how to make Keto Taco Salad

This week I wanted to spice things up for our lunches.  Also, I had some left over lettuce from the Kitchen Sink Keto Burger and the Lettuce Breakfast Tacos so I decided to make keto lunch tacos! One reason I hadn’t made this sort of thing before was the difficulty of using both hot and cold items and figuring out how to microwave and separate them. I figured out a decent solution and off we went!

Finished Keto Lunch TacosHere is the finished result.  I ended up using my prep bowls as storage for the sour cream and the salsa with some saran wrap on it. This way you can take it out and microwave the food, then add it back in.

Brown porkStart by browning some ground pork. Ground pork is both the fattiest and the cheapest meat, double keto win!

Browned MeatHere is the browned pork.  I added McCormick’s taco seasoning, some chilli powder, and some cayenne pepper.  I really should find / make a better taco seasoning because this one has carbs but it didn’t add too much to the total.

Meat and CheeseThrow some pork into each container with cheese on top.

Sour Cream and SalsaHere is the sour cream and the salsa in a prep bowl.  This was perfect for keeping this part cold during the microwaving.

Prep cup and tacosAs you can see, it fits perfectly into my lunch containers.

Finished ProductHere is the finished product.  I threw some Romaine Lettuce Leafs into the container and they worked out pretty well through the entire week.  I did it a couple of different ways. The easiest was actually to take the lettuce and cream out, then microwave the meat and cheese, then throw in the salsa and sour cream.  At that point, I either put it on the lettuce and ate it as a taco or ripped up the lettuce and threw it in for a taco salad.
