Taco Frittata

If you’ve been around me much in my life, you may have heard me say, “Tacos are life!” I kinda love them. Did ya know, they’re the perfect breakfast food?! 🌮🌮🌮

When I first had to go low carb, I thought imma never gonna have a taco again unless I’m being bad. Nope!

Lots of low carb options for tortillas at the grocery these days or I can make my own (using coconut flour for the recipe I have).

But, THIS! It doesn’t even need a tortilla since that thing is just the device for getting meaty, cheesy goodness into my mouth. I did serve with corn tortillas as my boys *need* carbs for their meal to be complete. 😁

I covered mine in sour cream and salsa for a melt-in-my-mouth party. And then I snuck a warm tortilla around some from my plate. Oh my!!! 😋😋😋

I love getting crafty w/ toppings: avocado, cilantro, salsa, sour cream, etc.

TIPS: To keep this recipe Keto and LowCarb, be sure to choose a salsa w/o added sugars! The one pictured above is NOT a keto-friendly salsa. One of these days I’ll add a keto-friendly salsa recipe…
