Need to put together a great, nutritious, low carb meal, but don’t have much time to cook it?
Look no further.
This recipe is one I kind of came up with accidentally, but it’s my favorite kind of recipe.
That’s because to make it you pretty much just throw everything into a pan and mix it together until it’s done. One pan meals are a lifesaver for me when I’m running around everywhere without any time to even think about what I’m going to cook.
This is an easy, peasy dinner.
And if your family is a fan of tacos, they’re almost guaranteed to love this recipe.
Be sure to make extra so you can actually have leftovers for lunch tomorrow!
Low Carb Taco Cabbage Skillet
Why do we forget about cabbage? It’s a hearty vegetable that contains only 2.3g of net carbs per cup.
I love it for its nutritional value and taste, but also because it’s very filling.
It’s the star of this recipe and really what bulks up the dish.
The macros are pretty solid, but an important note: when you cook this, your macros can greatly vary especially based on what kind of salsa you use. My favorite is Pace Organic Salsa.
Total Carbs: 5g
Net Carbs: 4g
Add salsa, seasoning, and cabbage to pan and bring to low boil
Cover and reduce heat to medium and cook for 10-12 minutes or until cabbage is soft
Turn off heat and mix in cheese until melted
Garnish, if desired with sour cream, green onions, avocado or favorite toppings

I followed this to a T. There is not enough liquid to even bring to boil, and this mixture becomes something that needs a significant amount of something not in the recipe. I was really disappointed. The amount of salsa and cabbage brings about a pretty dry mix. Amounts should be reviewed before preparing and following this recipe.

Extremely easy and a big hit with my teenager as well. Add nacho chips for her and she’s all smiles.
Thanks! Definitely making again and sharing.

I honestly have to say this is the Mexican version of a Bier Rock. I have made bier rocks for many years and this version would do well for the ones that can handle a little spice in their life. Thx for sharing.

This is a great and easy recipe My hubby loved it. I used my own homemade taco seasoning. Didn't have cheddar or mexican cheese, so used parmesan of all things and it was still great. My husband wants to try on soft taco shells. I think black olives would be a great addition too, Awesome recipe as is but also can be very versatile. Thanks!

I made this for my family... and everyone loved it! I made it with turkey burger and added a can of stewed tomatoes because I didn't have salsa. It still turned out amazing. This will be a recipe that I will end up using again and again.
