Healthy Keto Mexican Beef Casserole


This keto Mexican casserole is similar to a low carbohydrate shepherd's pie having a Mexican twist! 

Spicy soil beef topped with a cheesy mashed potato-like topping makes this a very tasty and also comforting dish.

Keto casserole recipe is an easy dinner idea that the entire family will enjoy. It’s loaded with ground beef, topped with cheese, and then baked in the oven. 

Enjoy the taste of tacos without the carbs!

As a matter of fact, while I enjoy this casserole as apart of my keto diet – my family loves it too! They still use chips to scoop up the casserole when they want to, so they don’t mind it at all!

The topping for this particular recipe does not involve some cauliflower at all. Actually, it is produced from very typical ingredients you likely have in your home today.

Everything you will need is a bit of water, almond flour, butter, almond milk, and cheese!


This easy recipe will come together by cooking the soil beef filling, setting up the topping, consequently baking for about half an hour.

For starters, we will prepare the materials because of the soil beef filling:

  • In a skillet above moderate-high heat, brownish the soil beef together with the minced garlic, salt, and then pepper.
  • Once the beef is browned, include the canned tomatoes and staying spices.
  • Reduce the high temperature to low, covering, and simmer for approximately 10 minutes.
  • Transfer to some 9×13 baking pan.

Then, incorporate the topping substances on the stove:

  • In a medium-sized saucepan, combine the bath, almond dairy, and then butter. Bring to a slow simmer.
  • Once simmering, whip the almond flour within the saucepan mixture.
  • Whisk in half of the grated cheddar cheese.
  • Taste the combination and after that add pepper and salt to the taste of yours.
  • Cook the combination until it's about the consistency of mashed potatoes. If it is way too heavy, add some water or maybe almond milk. If it is extremely thin, sprinkle in a little more almond flour.
