Yep, hits the spot! You can really put whatever you want on these. If you like cheddar, pepper jack…whatever, or if you want pulled pork instead of taco meat, you can really tailor it to your own individual tastes. My husband procured the chicharrones from a taco place nearby, but they’re available in grocery stores everywhere. Pork rinds are making their rounds on the low carb circuit, and this is a GREAT use for them!
Here is a homemade taco seasoning that is low carb for use with ground beef. It is simple to make, and I use it all of the time with my tostadas and taco salad.
Preheat the oven to low broil. On a baking sheet, put a single layer of chicharrones. Top with meat of your choice and cheese. Put under the broiler until cheese is desired consistency. Top with your favorites! Sour cream, guacamole, tomato, olives, onions…the sky’s the limit.
