The Best Keto Tacos

Be prepared for these keto tacos to seriously uplevel your brunch game.

These keto breakfast tacos are a twist on the classic breakfast burrito, with scrambled eggs, avocado, tomato and bacon. Plus, while a regular breakfast burrito shell would kick you out of ketosis, we’ve made this keto taco recipe with crunchy, warm shells that require only 1 ingredient: mozzarella cheese. If you’ve never had a cheese taco shell before, you’re in for a treat.

These breakfast tacos are mouthwatering as is, but you can also add your favorite keto friendly toppings, such as full-fat organic sour cream, cilantro, freshly squeezed lime juice, pico de gallo, and jalapeños.

Regardless of the ingredients you choose, these keto tacos are guaranteed to wake up your taste buds and get the ketones ‘rolling,’ so you can take on your day with unlimited amounts of energy and light that fat-burning metabolic fire.

When it comes to animal products, we recommend choosing organic or purchasing from a local farmer when possible to avoid the hormones and antibiotics in conventional dairy.

This recipe makes 3 keto tacos. Note: one taco is one serving— they’re that filling!
