Low carb pancake tacos with a ground beef and chorizo filling. Who would have thought pancakes would make such incredible taco shells? And keto pancakes at that!

  • Prep: 10 mins
  • Cook: 15 mins
  • Yields: 4 Servings

Ingredients

Pancakes

4 Eggs

4 oz. Cream Cheese

1/2 tablespoon Minced Garlic

2 teaspoons Cayenne Pepper

Taco Filling

8 oz. 80/20 Ground Beef

6 oz. Mexican Chorizo

2 teaspoons Cumin

2 teaspoons Paprika

2 teaspoons Cayenne

1 tablespoon Minced Garlic

2 tablespoons Butter

Taco Fixin's

1 Whole Avocado

1 Cup Shredded Cheese

1/4 cup Sour Cream

Directions

Pancakes

1In a bullet or mixer (I use a Nutribullet,) combine eggs, cream cheese, minced garlic, and cayenne. Pulse for 15-30 seconds until you have a nice batter. Allow bubbles to settle for 3-5 minutes.

2Bring a pan to medium heat, and place a small amount of butter in the pan so your pancakes don't stick

3When the butter begins to bubble, you can pour your first medium sized pancake on to the pan, leave it there until you see the edges of your pancake begin to rise and big bubbles forming in the middle (Note: the first one always turns out pretty bad!)

4Flip the pancake and leave it on that side for approximately one minute, or until golden brown on both sides

5Repeat until you have used all the mixture, and set your "taco shells" to the side

Taco Filling

1In a bowl, remove chorizo from casing (if applicable) and mix with ground beef

2Mix in the garlic by hand, and all the other seasonings (Season to taste here! We have listed suggestions for the amount to use, but do what feels right according to your love or hate for spicy food.)

3Heat a large skillet over medium-high heat. Cook and stir meat for 8-10 minutes, or until it is browned and crumbly

4Place into a bowl

Constructing the Taco

1Place a pancake on a place add a few scoops of meat, some diced avocado, shredded cheese, and a dollop of sour cream

2Enjoy!
