Home All Keto Recipes Keto Taco Salad Supreme Recipe

This Keto Taco Salad is an easy, low-carb option for taco supreme at home. Here, you’ll find everything that’s needed like my recipes for taco meat, guacamole, Pico De Gallo salsa & clean taco seasoning.

Why Make This

Taco Supreme was one of my favorite options at Taco Bell. There is something about the toppings that were refreshing & delicious! 

But, if you’re wanting to eat real food with real ingredients, some of what’s available for take-out isn’t ideal. 

In this easy keto taco salad recipe, I skip the taco shells and wraps to cut carbs. Then, layer bowls of fresh romaine lettuce with homemade taco meat and fresh toppings!

Ingredients Needed

  • Romaine lettuce: iceberg lettuce also works too.
  • Taco meat: I seasoned this with my homemade taco seasoning, but you can also use your favorite option from the market too.
  • Taco Toppings: The options for toppings for this salad are endless. But, I’m using shaved sharp cheddar cheese, sour cream, salsa, guacamole, cherry tomatoes, and red onions. Other options are radishes, limes, Mexican cheese blends and more.

How to Make This

Make Taco Meat:

Sauté the onions in a skillet. Then, add ground beef to the pan (photos 1-2).

Brown the ground beef and add taco seasoning (photos 3-4).

Assemble the Salad:

Layer your favorite toppings on a bowl or plate of lettuce (photos 5-6).

Top Cooking Tips & FAQs:

  • Save time by buying some toppings: You can easily make keto taco salad with ingredients that you can pick up, ready to eat from the store. For example, the fresh foods section in most markets has fresh guacamole and pico de gallo for sale daily. To save time, you can allow your local market to do some of the prep for you.
  • Customize to your tastes: this salad includes many of my favorite taco toppings and doesn’t include a dressing. Feel free to adjust this to your tastes and preferences. The options are endless.
How many carbs are in keto taco salad?

This meal contains a lot of vegetables so it generally includes quite a few carbs. But, vegetables also have a lot of fiber so each serving of this dish has 11g net carbs
