Tacos are my jam, well Mexican food period, but tacos make me a very happy girl.
Then I decided to change to a low-carb lifestyle.
Good news? I have lost about 30 pounds.
Bad news? NO TACOS 😢
Well, that was until I made Keto Flour Tortillas BUT I still love taco flavor in anything and everything, and some times I just don’t feel like making tortillas.
Yes, even food bloggers get tired of cooking sometimes.
That is where this meatloaf comes in.
Not a lot of prep, mix, form, bake, BOOM!
Y’all know I live with someone that is not exactly as quick to jump on the Mexican food bandwagon as me right?
Ya, the Mr. can pretty much take it or leave it.
Mostly leave it.
UNLESS it is my Keto Creamy Green Chile Chicken Enchiladas!
Then he is standing in the kitchen waiting to be fed like the pups do when I grab their food bowls.
I swear if he had a tail he would wag it!!
Then I made this meatloaf and found another way to get him over to the dark side errrr Mexican food side.
The first time I made this he said it didn’t have enough flavor 😒
I liked it but he loves and I mean LOVES spice.
So I used the hot taco seasoning instead of my homemade Tex-Mex seasoning. Plus added a few extra fresh sliced jalapenos to his plate.
That was what he wanted and he downed 2 servings in no time flat!
So if you or your fam love spice, go HOT!
Now, I know some of you might be thrown by the ground pork rinds in the recipe.
For people living a keto/low-carb lifestyle, pork rinds are a Godsend because they have zero carbs but have fat that we need because our bodies are adapted to running on fat, not insulin.
But, if you are not a keto peep, you can use breadcrumbs instead.
Nothing in my recipes is written in stone.
Like regular salsa more than salsa verde?
Go for it.
Although that roasted salsa verde is the 💣
What is funny is that I hated pork rinds before I went keto.
I mean like 🤢 hated them!
I still can’t do regular pork rinds. But the spicy ones dipped in queso?
Tex-Mex Beef Fajitas
