Keto Chili Taco Boats

Ready to tantalize your taste buds with something new? Keto Chili Taco Boats is a delicious, low-carb alternative to a classic Mexican dish. Perfect for your next potluck, dinner party, or weeknight meal, this dish packs an abundance of flavor and will have everyone wanting seconds. The key is finding the perfect blend of spices and herbs to make it worthwhile. Let’s jump right in and explore how to make Keto Chili Taco Boats!

As the name suggests, Keto Chili Taco Boats require chili, and fortunately, it’s not too difficult to make your own. First, brown one and a half lbs of ground beef in a large pot. Once finished, add a cup of chopped onion, two cloves of minced garlic, and your favorite chili seasonings; feel free to use chili powder, cumin, oregano, cayenne pepper, smoked paprika, garlic powder, onion powder, or some combination thereof. Allow the flavors to simmer together as you add two cups of beef broth, one 28-oz can of diced tomatoes, and one 4-oz can of tomato paste. Make sure to stir everything together and bring the mixture to a simmer. Once it’s reached a simmer, turn the heat down and allow the chili to cook for at least 30 minutes.

Next, while the chili is cooking, assemble your taco boats. To do this, you’ll need to cut eight XL or “super large” corn tortillas in half and place them on a large baking sheet. Once the halves are laid out, brush each side of the tortillas with oil (or avocado oil mayo), this will insure that the boats won’t burn or break apart while they’re baking in the oven. Preheat your oven to 375°F and place the baking sheet inside for 15 minutes or until the boats have slightly browned and firmed up.

Finally, time to put it all together. Use a large bowl to combine the chili and 2 cups of shredded cheese. Gently fold the cheese into the chili so that everything is evenly distributed. Remove the taco boats from the oven and divide the mixture between them. Top each boat off with more cheese, diced onions, diced bell peppers, cilantro (if desired), and jalapeños if you’re looking for some additional heat. Place the baking sheet back in the oven for an additional 15 minutes or until the cheese is melted and bubbly.

Keto Chili Taco Boats are ready for their big debut! To get the best flavor, experiment with different kinds of cheeses and chili seasonings. Give your families and friends the gift of deliciousness and watch them disappear in no time.

Enjoy!
