Low Carb Mexican Bubble Up Casserole Recipe

One of the recipes I cherish from when I was a young mother was Mexican Bubble Pizza, which was given to me by a sweet family friend. We love it so much, I added it to our regular meal planning.

It’s normally made with those refrigerated biscuits-in-a-can that pop when you unwrap and hit the can against the counter. That’s where the “bubble” comes from. It’s pretty delicious–and pretty processed, full of carbs, weird oils, and strange ingredients.

Definitely not keto.

But it’s so good! And the toppings are keto. How could I give all that yumminess up? I had to try making this family favorite ketogenic.

Success with Keto Mexican Bubble Pizza!

I’m so happy to say that this recipe transformation was a complete success! My kids gobbled this up and said it was better than the original. Well then.

Of course I’m not over in the corner madly giggling in secret triumph…

I really don’t think it’s normal to get this much satisfaction out of creating healthy recipes my family will love. I should probably figure out how to find some legitimacy in that too, somehow.

Hey, I know! I’ll create a blog! Sharing your weirdness with the world makes it legitimate, right? AND it has a name. So there’s that.

Anywho, I know you’ll enjoy this Keto Mexican Bubble Pizza! It’s incredibly flexible, too. If you’d like to add certain toppings or leave some out, this definitely lends itself to changes.

A word on spices for this keto bubble up pizza…

I tend to be a control freak when it comes to spices. I don’t normally use spice mixes unless I really trust the brand and they’ve come through for me before.

So I create my own spice mixes, often with fresh herbs and spices if available.

It’s completely unnecessary to be as controlled as I am (I’m going to pretend you didn’t just say “anal” in your head).

You can just use a normal taco seasoning like a normal human being, but I’ve included my seasoning recipe for those who might be interested.

Flavor for Keto Recipes

Now I’m feeling the need to defend myself a little. Story time. A long time ago, when I realized that sugar was hurting me, I also realized that we rely on sugar for most of our flavor.

When I started reducing sugar I could taste more of the other ingredients, but my food was often still bland and boring.  

So I now focus on flavors other than sweetness to give my food taste. I enjoy mixing and experimenting to find different flavor profiles.

So yes, I’m a bit of an herb and spice fanatic. Quality counts. Fresh is best. But will a ready-made seasoning mix do? Absolutely! You will enjoy this Mexican Bubble Pizza no matter what taco seasoning blend you use!

    I love this meal! It is comfort food that is so good!

      I feel the same way! Except most comfort food isn’t also healthy at the same time. Oh yeah!
