We absolutely love Mexican flavours and find we are often making dishes with taco seasoning. This easy keto taco casserole recipe gives you all the delicious Mexican flavours from the taco seasoning in an easy to make casserole. Kids will love this keto taco casserole and you might even get away with adding the cauliflower rice without them knowing. To make this keto taco casserole recipe more kid-friendly you can leave out the jalapeños.
Easy Keto Taco Casserole
Casseroles and bakes are really good weekday option. They are usually pretty easy to throw together, pop in the oven and then dinner is ready to go. We also love that the whole meal is all in one dish. With this easy keto taco casserole, it includes your vegetables in the cauliflower rice, so no need for a side with this meal!
This recipe is also going to be one of those meals that you can serve to the whole family, even the kids and the non-keto members of your family. Sometimes, if you just serve the meal up and don’t make a big deal about it being low carb, they will love it and eat it with no complaints.
Bakes and casseroles are also pretty easy to make a low carb version. Check out some of our favourite low carb casseroles and bakes:
Mingle Taco Seasoning
We first found Mingle Seasonings at La Manna Supermarket in Essendon. Since then we are so happy that our favourite online low carb store, Low Carb Emporium now stock them. Their seasoning blends only use herbs and spices with no fillers and no sugar. We love to use them to season our steak, chicken wings, hamburgers and roasting vegetables.
We love the Mingle Sasonings and they have really increased their product range since we found them. They now have 2 different products. They have their original spice blends and meal spice blends. Check them out below.

Other Taco Seasoning Options
We love that we can access a clean taco seasoning from Mingle, but if you don’t have access to the Mingle Seasonings from Low Carb Emporium, you have a few different options.
- Make your Own. The best recipe we like is from Wholesome Yum. We usually make up a double batch of this recipe and then we store it in a airtight jar.
- If you are in the US, check out Casa de Sante taco seasoning, Riega Organic Taco Seasoning or Select Savory Taco Seasoning. These all have clean ingredients and no fillers or sugar.
