Taco Skillet

This taco skillet is absolutely incredible! You can eat it as is or serve it with chips! This was originally written as a Keto recipe but if you aren’t following a low carb diet you can also stuff this in a baked sweet potato. It’s easy, it’s delicious and the flavors were amazing!



Serves: 4-6

Prep Time: 20-30 minutes

  • 1 tbsp avocado oil/ghee/butter

  • 1 lb ground beef (I used 1/2 lb ground beef and 1/2 lb ground chicken)

  • 1/2 white onion, diced

  • 1/2 bell pepper, diced

  • 1 (4oz) can diced green chilis

  • 3 tbsp taco seasoning (I posted the recipe I use below but you can use store bought)

  • 2 roma tomatoes, seeded and diced

  • 12 oz cauliflower rice (fresh or frozen)

  • 1 cup shredded Mexican cheese

  • 1 avocado, diced for topping

  • sliced jalapeno, seeded

  • sour cream or plain Greek yogurt

  • chopped cilantro for topping

*Homemade Taco Seasoning* (I like to double this recipe at least and just keep it in my pantry for later)

  • 1 tbsp chili powder

  • 1 1/2 tsp arrowroot powder or cornstarch

  • 1 tsp ground cumin

  • 1 tsp dried oregano

  • 1 tsp unsweetened cocoa powder

  • 1 tsp salt

  • 1/2 tsp garlic powder

  • 1/2 tsp onion powder

  • 1/2 tsp black pepper

  • 1/8 tsp cayenne pepper

  • 1/8 tsp ground coriander


Heat your cooking fat in a large cast iron skillet over medium high heat. Add your ground meat and saute for about 8 minutes, breaking it up as it cooks.

Once the meat is browned, add your chopped onion and bell pepper. Sprinkle with taco seasoning and cook for an additional 3-4 minutes.

Stir in green chilis, chopped tomatoes and cauliflower rice. Cook for 5-7 minutes until the majority of the moisture has cooked out.

Sprinkle cheese over top and cook until melted. Top with sliced jalapenos, avocado and sour cream or Greek yogurt.
