How to Make Keto Taco Shells

Combine all ingredients in a mixing bowl and toss so everything is well incorporated.

TIP: When shopping for cheeses, we recommend buying 100% real cheese blocks and shredding yourself. Some pre-packaged shredded cheeses contain fillers and added carbs.

Line a baking sheet with parchment paper or non-stick silicone baking mat and arrange about 1/3 cup of the cheese mixture into a circle about 5 inches in diameter. (You should be able to get about 3 cheese taco shells per cookie sheet).

Bake at 350 degrees for about 15 minutes, then remove tray from the oven.

Use a large spatula to remove your cheese discs from the cookie sheet one at a time, immediately placing them into the middle of the the taco holder. Gently push the center of the cheese disc down to form the taco shell.

Repeat these steps until all shells have been baked and formed.

Let the shells cool completely, and then place them on a tray until time to serve.
