Cheese Shell Taco Cups

These Keto Cheese Shell Taco Cups are the easiest way to get your taco on…low carb style!

I’m a huge fan of replacing carby tortillas with straight-up cheese, but it’s not always so easy to get the shape right…at least for me…

Want my solution? Put the cheese on inside a muffin tin!

Depending on the side of your muffin pan (I used Jumbo because…come on) you can make mini or huge cups.

I just placed slices of Colby cheese on parchment and baked at 375 for a few minutes. They will still be bubbly when you take them out.


Cheese cups
  • 6–8 slices of Colby jack cheese, or preferred cheese

  • 2 Roma tomatoes, diced

  • 3 tbsp diced red onion

  • 1/2 fresh jalapeno, diced finely

  • Juice from 1 lime

  • 3 tbsp cilantro

Other, optional
  • Sour cream, taco meat of choice, avocado, etc



  1. Preheat oven to 375

  2. Place slices of cheese on a parchment-lined baking sheet with a few inches in between slices

  3. Bake for about 5 minutes or until bubbly and just starting to brown at the edges

  4. Remove baking sheet and let cool a couple of minutes

  5. Carefully pick up slices and place in a muffin tin to form a cup shape, let cool additional 10 minutes


  1. Place Roma tomatoes, onions, jalapeno, lime juice, and cilantro in a medium covered bowl in the fridge for at least 30 minutes, or serve immediately -it gets more flavorful the longer it is in the fridge

Assemble cups by filling with preferred fillings and enjoy!
