Ingredients

Instructions

  • Preheat the oven to 175 Celsius / 350 Fahrenheit.
  • Mix all ingredients in a food processor or with an electric mixer until they resemble small crumbs. 
  • Line a baking sheet with parchment paper. Draw circles of 6 inch / 15 cm diameter on the parchment. I traced around a small saucepan lid, but you can use any round object that size. 
  • Scoop 1/4 cup of the taco shell mix onto each circle and spread out inside the circle.
  • Place a second parchment paper on top and press down the dough with your hands or use a rolling pin. Press down well - you want it nice and compacted.
  • Remove the top parchment paper and bake in the oven for 7 minutes or until the edges of each taco have browned. 
  • Remove from the oven and hang each taco shell over the side of a large saucepan until cooled.

Notes

For an extra kick add spices such as cumin or chilli to the mix. 
If you don't have a large pot, place an oven rack over the sink. Drape the tortillas between the bars of the rack so the sides hang down and form the taco shape. 
The recipe works with just mozzarella, but the psyllium and the coconut flour make your keto taco shells extra crispy and super sturdy.
I think 2 tacos filled with cumin spiced ground beef, avocado, tomato, lettuce, coriander/cilantro and sour cream make a filling meal (unless you're a teenager - my son is 15 and he ate 3).
