Keto Taco Cups


  • keto-friendly fillings as desired
  • 1 cup shredded cheddar cheese


  1. Preheat oven to 350 F.
  2. The easiest way to make these is to use a cookie sheet covered with a silicone baking mat, as well as a silicone cupcake pan. If you aren’t using silicone, coat your cookie sheet and cupcake pan with non-stick cooking spray (or oil) for easy removal of the cheese cups.
  3. On your cookie sheet (preferably covered with a silicone baking mat), make eight circles using shredded cheddar cheese. Each circle is made from 2 tbsp cheese and should be approximately 3 1/2″ in diameter.
  4. Place cookie sheet in preheated oven and bake for 5-7 minutes until edges begin to brown.
  5. Remove cookie sheet from oven, let cool for 10 seconds, and then carefully remove each cheese circle and place inside a muffin pan slot to form a cup.
  6. Let the Keto Taco Cups cool inside the muffin pan for at least 10 minutes before carefully removing the cups and filling them with desired fillings.
Keto Taco Cups


  • I read a great tip online to make the circles “lacey” (as in, leave some space between some of the cheese shreds) for the crispiest shells. 
  • To make taco-seasoned Keto Taco Cups, mix one cup shredded cheese (the amount you’ll use for eight taco cups) with 1 tsp Keto Taco Seasoning.
  • Feel free to experiment with the 5-7 minutes baking range. I baked some cheese for 7 minutes, which significantly browns the edges and makes them quite crispy, but they’re prone to breaking on the edges. The cheese I baked only 5 minutes was (as you would expect!) much more pliable when I pulled them off the cookie sheet and didn’t have any breakage issues, but they didn’t end up as crispy. I preferred the 7-minute cups.
  • If some of the cheese circles begin to harden before you can remove them, place the pan back in the oven for a few seconds to make them pliable again.
