A dairy free keto taco made in one pot! This Keto Taco Salad Skillet meal is ready in under 30 minutes and an easy way to have Taco Tuesday every day!
Two of my favorite foods in the entire world are tacos and egg rolls. I know, not anywhere remotely the same but both equally delicious.
Recently I found myself with a hankering for my Pork Fried Cauliflower Rice but only had ground beef on hand in the freezer. And yes, I totally could have made that recipe with beef but it just didn’t sound like it would hit the spot.
Plus, my kids wanted tacos and all parents know that hell hath no fury like a small child who doesn’t get the dinner they requested.
So what would any good resourceful food blogger do? I married the two recipes.
I took the recipe for my Low Carb Beef Tacos added a little extra spices, threw in some Rotel tomatoes, slaw mix, and cauliflower rice and hoped for the best.
I’ll be honest, my hopes weren’t too high while cooking this. I was wingin’ it like Kim K’s eyeliner. But when we sat down and ate, the flavor gods spoke and I was so thankful I wrote all of my steps down. (This is another thing food bloggers do just in case we create a masterpiece.)
This easy, under 30 skillet meal ended up being the best meal we had all week! The kids ate it without complaining. All was right in the world. Well, at least for the 10 minutes it took to scarf this down.
Not only is this recipe a one pot meal (a.k.a. minimal dishes to wash) but the macros are divine! You can load up your plate with all the taco toppings to get in that extra fat and protein!
After the pretty pictures were taken, of course, I topped my plate with sour cream, tomatoes, guacamole, and queso dip! You know what else I did? I scooped up this deliciousness with pork rinds. It was basically a plate of keto friendly beef nachos! What’s not to love about that?!

You should be able to find sazon seasoning very easily. It's a very common ingredient in hispanic cooking and most grocery stores have ethnic aisles these days. I've bought it at Kroger and Was-Mart every time. If for whatever reason you don't find it, just omit it. I don't know a replacement.

Do we mix the cauliflower in or use it as a base ("rice")?

I mixed it in the skillet at the end. Just fixed the recipe card to indicate that too. But you could use it as a base if you wanted! :)
