Following a low-carb way of eating doesn't have to mean that you can't enjoy tacos anymore. This casserole has all the flavor of tacos, and if you like, pork rinds for crunch. For extra flavor, garnish with avocados, sour cream, sliced olives, shredded lettuce, or pork rinds.

Instructions Checklist
  • Preheat the oven to 350 degrees F (175 degrees C). Spray an 11x7-inch baking dish with cooking spray.

  • Heat a large nonstick skillet over medium-high heat. Cook and stir ground beef in the hot skillet until browned and crumbly, 5 to 7 minutes. Stir in 1 1/2 teaspoons chili powder, 1 teaspoon onion powder, 1 teaspoon garlic powder, cumin, coriander, salt, and pepper until spiced are distributed evenly. Cook until fragrant, 4 to 5 minutes. Remove from heat.

  • Whisk together eggs and cream in a bowl; add to meat mixture. Spread mixture into the prepared baking dish and pat down evenly.

  • Wipe the skillet clean, add olive oil, and heat over medium heat. Add onion and cook until soft and translucent, about 2 minutes. Add remaining 1 teaspoon each chili powder, garlic powder, and onion powder. Season with salt and pepper. Stir in tomato paste and cook, stirring often, 2 to 3 minutes. Add cauliflower rice and continue cooking for 4 to 5 minutes. Remove from heat, stir in 1 cup Cheddar cheese, and spread on top of meat in the baking dish, smoothing with a spatula to flatten the top.

  • Bake in the preheated oven for 25 to 30 minutes. Sprinkle remaining 1/2 cup Cheddar over the top and bake until cheese has melted, about 5 minutes. Remove from oven and allow to cool about 5 minutes. Serve warm.

Everyone loved this recipe. I did the steps a little different with the meat and onions together. I also used a head of cauliflower chopped up small- same taste. Used taco seasoning- it was filling and yummy! :) Will make it again. Read More

Needs more spices for my taste, a little dry and it takes longer than 10 minutes to prepare. I would add liquid to the tomato paste to add more moisture and/or not drain the cauliflower rice. Read More

I typically will make recipes exactly as the directions state on my first try, however as I did not have all the spices on hand I used an organic taco seasoning and also used cream cheese instead of the heavy cream because that is what I had. Excellent recipe and I will definitely be making this again, love that it's Keto with Cauliflower "rice" which provides some fiber to the dish! Read More

We loved this recipe and I really don't care for cauliflower. The only change I would make is double the seasoning. Read More

This is really good and I am not a fan of riced cauliflower. Only recommendation i would suggest is a smaller pan size. Spread this thin it can get a bit hard. I only naked mine 18 minutes so that wouldn't happen. Glad I have it a try. Read More

Made it for a potluck. I thought it looked dry. (I did try a sticking out piece and the flavor was yummy). However, as there was nothing left and everybody kept asking “who made that?”, I guess looks can be deceiving because it was a hit! It was easy, a quick make, and common ingredients were on hand.

This is a pretty good recipe, simple and healthy. I've made it twice and feel like its missing something, next time maybe jalapeños or spinach? Read More

Fabulous! My husband really liked it as well. And he was so surprised that Cauliflower was used in it. I didn't have any hamburger, so I used spicy ground sausage instead. Yum!!!!! K. Murray Read More

This casserole was delicious! I would add more riced cauliflower next time and probably just buy a fresh head of cauliflower instead of the frozen. The frozen did make this dish more convenient though. Read More
