This easy Keto Taco Casserole recipe really hits the spot. With only 5 ingredients and a 5 minute prep time, it is a lifesaver on busy weeknights. My taco casserole recipe is great for a keto or low carb diet.
Mix the ground meat and taco seasoning in a large greased casserole dish. Mine is 11 x 13. Bake for 20 minutes.
Meanwhile, mix together the cottage cheese, salsa, and 1 cup of the cheese. Set aside.
Remove the casserole dish from the oven and carefully drain the cooking liquid from the meat. Break up the meat into small pieces. A potato masher works great for this. Spread the cottage cheese and salsa mixture on top of the meat. Sprinkle the remaining cheese on top.
Return the casserole to the oven and bake for an additional 15-20 minutes until the meat is cooked thoroughly and the cheese is hot and bubbly.
