Keto Beef Taquitos

A savory and crunchy keto-friendly snack.

Ingredients

  • 1 cup shredded Cheddar cheese
  • 1 cup shredded Mozzarella cheese
  • 1/2 cup grated Parmesan cheese
  • 1 lb ground beef
  • 1/4 cup minced onion
  • 1 tsp cumin
  • 1/2 tsp chili powder
  • 1/2 tsp paprika
  • 1/2 tsp onion powder
  • 1/2 tsp garlic powder
  • 1/2 tsp salt
  • 1/2 tsp pepper
  • 1/2 cup water

Instructions

  1. Preheat your oven to 400°F (200°C) and line a baking sheet with parchment paper.
  2. In a skillet over medium heat, brown the ground beef with minced onion until fully cooked and no longer pink.
  3. Drain excess fat from the beef mixture.
  4. Add cumin, chili powder, paprika, onion powder, garlic powder, salt, pepper, and water to the skillet with the beef. Mix well and simmer until most of the liquid has evaporated.
  5. In a microwave-safe bowl, combine shredded Cheddar, Mozzarella, and Parmesan cheeses. Microwave in 30-second intervals, stirring in between, until cheeses are melted and can be stirred together.
  6. Spread the melted cheese mixture into a thin layer on the parchment-lined baking sheet.
  7. Spoon the beef mixture evenly over the melted cheese layer.
  8. Roll up the cheese and beef mixture tightly into a log shape, using the parchment paper to help you roll.
  9. Cut the log into smaller segments (about 1 inch wide) and place each segment seam-side down on the baking sheet.
  10. Bake in the preheated oven for 10-12 minutes, or until taquitos are golden and crispy.
  11. Remove from oven and let cool slightly before serving.
