Keto Taco Bell Seasoned Meat

The key ingredients to any Taco Bell menu item are their seasoned meat and beans. So in this article, I will show you how to make both so that you have the main ingredients to make many Taco Bell variations.

Well seasoned taco meat is just a variation of spices and ground meat. To make this taco meat a little saucy like Taco Bell’s beef taco meat, you will want to use an 80%-85% lean ground beef. This ensures that your meat produces enough juice that your meat doesn’t dry out.

You will need to use onion powder, garlic salt, chili powder, cumin, and paprika to season your meat. Be sure to break your meat into smaller pieces while you cook it.

When the meat is done cooking, scoop it into a bowl using a slotted spoon. The flavourful grease from the meat will be used to cook the refried “beans”

Low-Carb Taco Bell Refried “Beans”

keto taco bell refried beans in a skillet

Making low-carb refried beans is easier than you may think. These refried “beans” are made out of peeled and chopped eggplant that is seasoned and cooked in the juice from the taco meat.

Once the eggplant has cooked, it is then pulsed in a food processor until it is bean texture and then refried again on the stove.

At this point, you are probably sceptical of these beans. I was as well, but they really are tasty.

I won’t claim that they taste like beans. Instead, they add the needed bean texture to your meals, without the carbs.

On their own, the beans taste like seasoned eggplant. However, mixed into a burrito they take the place of refried beans very well and no longer taste like eggplant.

Assembling Keto Taco Bell Soft Tacos Supreme

To assemble your soft tacos you will first need to make a batch of Libby’s keto tortillas. The tortillas only require 3 ingredients and a few minutes to make.

To keep your tortillas soft, you will only want to cook the tortillas for a few seconds on each side. The longer you cook the tortillas the harder they will be when they cool. Be sure to keep your tortillas warm until you are ready to fill them.

To assemble your soft tacos you will want to layer the meat, sour cream, lettuce, tomatoes, sour cream, and cheese inside each tortilla. Beans are not usually used in Taco Bell tacos.

Top your tacos with your favorite keto-friendly hot sauce and enjoy!

Two Ways to Assemble the Low-Carb Taco Bell Burrito Supreme

There are two ways that you can assemble your burrito. Both give an excellent result!

Method One: Assemble, Then Cook

The first way to assemble to burrito is to layer the beans, meat, sour cream, hot sauce, lettuce, tomatoes, and cheese into the middle of an uncooked Libby’s Keto Tortilla.

Next, roll the tortilla into a burrito and place the burrito into the center of a warm skillet to cook for several seconds on all sides. This option of assembly is best if you want a crispy grilled burrito or if you are having a hard rolling the burrito after the tortilla is cooked.

Method Two: Cook, Then Assemble

The second way to assemble this keto Taco Bell burrito is to cook the tortilla first. Then, fill and roll the burrito while the tortilla is still warm.

If you assemble the burrito this way you will want to cook and assemble one burrito at a time to ensure they tortillas do not cool and remain easy to work with.

How Do I Roll A Burrito?

Rolling a burrito definitely becomes easier with practice.

  1. To roll the burrito fold the two side pieces of the tortilla over the filling.
  2. Fold the bottom of the tortilla (the side closest to you) over the filling.
  3. Tuck the end of the tortilla under the filling with the tips of your fingers to make sure you’re tightly wrapping your tortilla.
  4. Continue to roll the burrito up to the top end of the tortilla until the burrito is complete rolled.

The burrito should be placed seam side down while you roll the rest of the burritos to ensure the stays rolled.

What Is The Best Way To Cook Burrito Sized Tortillas?

Taco-sized tortillas are easily cooked in a skillet on the stove. I can’t say the same for burrito-sized to tortillas. The first couple of times I tried, my tortilla either stuck to the pan or stuck together. So to help you avoid the mistakes I made here are my tips for cooking large keto tortillas.

If you are cooking your tortillas in a skillet on the stove:

1) Make sure the skillet is large enough for the tortilla to lay flat in the skillet. 2) Grease your skillet a little with olive oil. Smaller tortillas are easily cooked on an ungreased pan but the same is not true for a large tortilla.
3) Fill and roll your burrito and then cook the filled burrito on the stove instead of just the tortilla.

Cooking Keto Tortillas in the Oven

Your tortillas can also be cooked in the oven. To cook your tortillas in the oven preheat your oven to 220C/425F. Lay your tortillas flat on a baking sheet lined with parchment paper. Do not line the pan with foil as it will stick to your tortillas.

Bake the tortillas for 2-5 minutes in the oven. Keep an eye on the tortilla because they cook quickly.

How Many Tortillas Can I Get From One Batch of Keto Tortillas?

The number of tortillas you get will depend on the size of the tortillas you make. You are able to get 8 small tortillas that are about the size of a tea saucer from one batch of dough. These are perfect for tacos.

If you are making a burrito you will be able to get 2-4 large tortillas from one batch of dough. I have made the tortillas several times now so when I roll the dough out I am easily able to get 3 dinner plate-sized tortillas from one batch of dough. However, if you make medium-sized tortillas you can get 4 tortillas from one batch of dough.

Since the number of tortillas can vary depending on how big and thin you make your tortillas this recipe was written assuming you may only get 2 tortillas per batch. I recommend making your dough one batch at to see how many tortillas you are able to get and if you need more, make another or half batch of dough to get more tortillas.

How to Store Low-Carb Refried “Beans”

Low-carb refried beans can be stored in the refrigerator in an airtight container for up to 5 days. The “beans” will thicken as they sit in the refrigerator getting even more refried beans texture.

This means the beans are perfect for making ahead or using for meal prep. The seasoned taco meat can also be store in an airtight container in the refrigerator for up to 5 days.

Can I Use The Meat and Beans To Make Other Keto TacoBell Recipes

You can definitely make many different copycat keto Taco Bell recipes using the meat, “beans”, and tortillas.

The best way to figure out how to make other Taco Bell menu items is to Google the menu item and click on the Taco Bell link. You are usually able to see what ingredients are in that menu item so that you can duplicate it.

Tips For Reducing Carbs Further

There are a few ways you can reduce the carbs even further for these recipes.
1) Make your tortillas smaller or thinner. The more tortillas you get out of one batch of dough the lower your carb count per burrito or 2 tacos will be.
2) Use a smaller portion of “beans” or leave them out altogether.
3) Reduce the toppings you use. The carbs in your toppings add up. Using fewer toppings or leaving some of them out (especially the tomatoes) will reduce the carbs in your meal.
4) Make a tasty taco salad or burrito bowl. Serve the fillings over a bed of lettuce instead of wrapped in a tortilla.

The best part about these recipes is that they are customizable and the meat and “beans” can be used in many different ways!

Taco Meat and Refried “Beans”

Instructions

Making Taco Meat and Refried “Beans”

  • Mix all the seasonings together in a small dish then set aside until ready to use.

  • Heat a skillet on the stove. When it is hot add your ground beef to the pan. Then add HALF of your seasoning to the meat. Use a spatula to break the meat into small pieces as the meat browns and mix the seasoning in.

  • When the meat is complete cooked scoop the meat out of the pan and set it aside. Leave the grease in the pan, do not discard it. Remove the pan from the heat until you are ready to use the pan to make the refried “beans”.

  • Peel your eggplant and chop it into small cubes. The smaller the pieces the quicker the eg plant will cook.

  • Next, add your eggplant to the same pan you cooked your meat in with seasoned grease and the remaining seasoning. Turn your heat to high and let the eggplant cook uncovered for 10-15 minutes until it becomes soft and caramelized. You’ll know your eggplant is done because the eggplant will turn translucent. Be sure to stir the eggplant occasionally to ensure it doesn’t burn or stick to the pan.

  • When the eggplant is done cooking add it to a food processor or blender and pulse several times until the eggplant is smooth like refried beans.

  • Add your eggplant “beans” back to the hot skillet and allow them to cook for a few minutes to get rid of any excess moisture. When they are hot, remove them from the heat until you are ready to roll your burrito.

Assembling Your Burrito Supreme

  • Cook your keto tortilla on the stove so that it is warm. Once it is done place it flat on a plate.

  • While the tortilla is still warm layer your beans, meat, red hot sauce, sour cream, lettuce, tomatoes, and cheese in the center. You will want to use 1/4 of each item in each burrito to ensure you get 4 burritos.

  • Next roll your burrito by first folding the short ends over the fillings. Then wrap the longer end closest to you tightly over the filling. Finally, roll the burrito until the last side is wrapped around the burrito. Enjoy!
