Best Low-Carb Taco Cups

Delicious low-carb taco cups are an addictive recipe you can serve any time of the day. The recipe yields 10 taco cups (2 per serving) – enough to feed the entire family! Of course, you can adjust the recipe to feed more people. Taco cups are prepared with classic fathead dough, filled with delicious taco-flavored meat, and then served with chopped onions, avocadoes, and tomatoes. Feel free to adjust the amount of taco seasoning according to your taste; just remember to log any extra ingredients. These fantastic taco cups can be served warm or cold with a dollop of Greek yogurt. What an excellent addition to your low-carb recipes!

How do you substitute ground beef?

You can easily substitute the ground beef with the same amount of ground pork (or a combination of two). Chicken or turkey breast is another great idea to substitute ground beef. You can use minced or chopped breast.

How do you store the leftovers?

Store the leftovers in airtight containers and refrigerate for a few days. Add the toppings when ready to serve.

Can I freeze these taco cups?

Absolutely! These taco cups freeze well. Gently thaw them in the oven when ready to serve. Add the toppings before serving.
