Keto Taco Casserole



  • 2 Tbs. olive or coconut oil
  • 1 medium yellow onion, diced
  • 6 garlic cloves, minced
  • 2 lbs. ground turkey
  • 1 tsp. sea salt
  • ½ tsp. black pepper
  • 1 large jalapeño pepper, seeded and minced
  • 1 medium green bell pepper, diced
  • 1 15-oz. can chopped tomatoes, drained
  • 5 large eggs
  • 2 tsp. ground cumin
  • 2 tsp. paprika
  • 1½ cups shredded Colby or cheddar cheese
  • Chopped cilantro leaves, thinly sliced jalapeño peppers, sour cream, and sliced avocado, optional, for garnish


  1. Preheat oven to 400°F. Heat oil in large skillet, and sauté onions and garlic until just softened, about 2 minutes. Add ground turkey, salt, and pepper. Cook 5–6 minutes, breaking meat up and stirring frequently, until turkey is lightly browned. Add jalapeño, green bell pepper, and tomatoes, and stir to mix well. Remove from heat.
  2. In large bowl, whisk together eggs, cumin, and paprika. Fold in turkey and vegetable mixture, and mix well. Spread evenly into 8×8-inch glass casserole, and sprinkle top with cheese.
  3. Bake 20–25 minutes, until casserole is set and cheese is bubbly and lightly browned. Remove from oven and let stand 5 minutes before cutting. Serve hot, garnished with cilantro, jalapeño peppers, sour cream, and avocado, if using.
