This Low-Carb Crustless Taco Pie is a spicy crustless quiche. It’s loaded with ground beef that is spiced up with taco seasoning, green onions, cheese, and salsa. Top it with whatever you like on your tacos–sour cream, guacamole, diced tomatoes, chopped onions, or whatever else you love.
My favorite thing about this taco pie is how easy it is to make. Just brown some ground beef and add some spices. Stir this into an egg mixture and pour into a pan. Top with some grated cheese, and pop into the oven. In 35 minutes, dinner is done!
In an effort to make this recipe quick and easy to get in the oven, I use a few packaged products–taco seasoning and salsa. This is one of the few recipes on my site where I use packaged products. Be sure to read the ingredients on each product and check the nutritional information. These can vary quite a bit among brands. I provided an affiliate link to a taco seasoning that doesn’t have a lot of fillers, but you can use whatever seasoning you like and works for your diet.
One reason I try to stay away from packaged items is to keep my readers in control of what they put in their bodies. If you have trouble finding taco seasoning that works for you, let me know. I have a recipe for taco seasoning from scratch that I haven’t written up yet.
This Low-Carb Crustless Taco Pie makes dinner quick and easy. It’s a delicious meal everyone will love.

Prep Time 10 minutes
Cook Time 35 minutes
Total Time 45 minutes
- 1 pound ground beef preferably grass-fed
- 1 packet taco seasoning (be sure it is free of MSG, starches, and any additives)
- 3 green onions thinly sliced
- 1/4 cup salsa
- 1 cup Mexican blend cheese finely shredded, quantity divided
- 4 large eggs
- 2/3 cup heavy cream preferably grass-fed
- 1/2 teaspoon sea salt
Preheat oven to 350º Fahrenheit. Prepare a 9" pie pan by greasing with butter or spraying with coconut oil.
Heat a large skillet over medium high heat. If your ground beef is low in fat or if your skillet is not well seasoned, you may want to spray the pan with coconut oil to prevent sticking. When skillet is hot, add ground beef, breaking up into small pieces with a spoon or spatula. Cook, stirring occasionally until browned. Drain beef and add taco seasoning and cook according to package instructions. Set aside and allow to cool while continuing with the next step.
In a medium mixing bowl, whisk together the eggs and heavy cream. Stir in the green onions, salsa, 3/4 cup of the cheese, and the salt.
Stir prepared taco meat into the egg mixture. Pour this mixture into the prepared pie pan. Sprinkle remaining cheese on top.
Bake pie in preheated oven for 30-35 minutes or until the top is brown and the pie is set. Allow to cool for 5 minutes before serving. Serve with your favorite taco toppings such as salsa, sour cream, guacamole, sliced green onions, or whatever else you like!
