Keto Nacho Chicken Casserole [Southwest Shepherd’s Pie]
Keto and casseroles seem to go hand in hand when you think about the type of high-fat foods that are being included. All of the cheeses you’re able to use create an ooey, gooey texture that everyone can enjoy. Whether you’re a working mom, a college student, or you just want an easy meal – this casserole will get the job done!
This is my Southwestern-esque take on Shepherd’s Pie. It’s got a great heat coming through from the chili seasoning, a good balance of acidity and sweetness from the tomatoes, and plenty of cheese to boot. The cauliflower on top just adds a layer of fluffy goodness that lightens up what might be considered a heavy dish.
One tip to make things go a little quicker is to pre-cook the cauliflower when you start browning the chicken. It will still be warm enough to melt the cheese into the cauliflower, and will save on 5-6 minutes of down time while you’re cooking. This way, you can have everything ready in just about 30 minutes.
