We love this Easy Layered Taco Dip with Meat so much that I even make it for dinner sometimes. One of my kids' favorite dinners is when we make a bunch of appetizers and finger foods and watch a movie or sports game together while munching.
As I mentioned I have no problem just eating this keto taco dip with a spoon. It is also great with low carb chips and fresh veggies, especially sweet peppers. You can use the same ingredients to make stuffed peppers. Instead of baking it in a pie plate just bake it inside the peppers.
I used ground turkey but feel free to sub in beef or another ground meat of your choice. We even have friends who use venison in their tacos. Shredded chicken from my Instant Pot Chicken Tenders works really well in this too. We had this with a few friends and there was a little bit leftover. I was happy to eat it for lunch the next day with a spoon. No dippers required.

salsa - make sure to choose a salsa without added sugar

The base layer of cream cheese really kicks this up and turns it from plain old taco meat into a delicious keto taco dip. If your cream cheese is hard you can put it in the pie plate and then microwave it for 20 seconds to start the softening process.
