Raise your hand if you love tacos.

I can just tell how many hands are raised right now, and how many of you are so excited for this recipe.

I thought I’d do a 5 day countdown to Cinco de Mayo with some of my favorite Keto-Friendly Mexican recipes…

Well…between the craziness of moving and being 38 weeks pregnant…my original plan didn’t quite work out…

But I’m still really excited to show you the newest innovation in low carb taco-eating.

I’m a huge fan of replacing carby tortillas with straight up cheese, but it’s not always so easy to get the shape right…at least for me…

Want my solution? Put the cheese on inside a muffin tin!

Depending on the side of your muffin pan (I used Jumbo because…come on) you can make mini or huge cups.

I just placed slices of colby cheese on parchment and baked at 375 for a few minutes. They will still be bubbly when you take them out.

Let them cool a couple minutes until you can lift them, then place into a non stick muffin tin.

Let them continue to cool for about 10 minutes, then just fill them up with your favorite taco goodies, and…voila!
