Can’t decide between tacos and meatloaf? Make both! Keto slow cooker taco meatloaf is just spicy enough to wake up your tastebuds.
What Is Taco Meatloaf
Taco meatloaf is a delicious twist on a classic family dinner. It takes everything you love about meatloaf and adds the spice of taco seasoning and some spicy tomatoes and peppers to it.
Most meatloaf recipes are baked in the oven. This recipe is made in the slow cooker. You don’t have to worry about babying the oven for an hour or more.
You can just place the meatloaf in the slow cooker and let it do all the work.
Before you make your keto slow cooker taco meatloaf, this is what you’ll need from the store. All of the exact ingredient amounts are in the printable recipe card at the bottom of this post.
- Ground Beef
- Green Chilis
- Taco Seasoning
- Rotel tomatoes
- Red Onion

- Shredded Cheese
There are a few ways that you can change things in this recipe to save yourself time or to make it taste differently the next time. If you make any changes, please let me know. I’d love to hear!
- Beef – try this with ground sausage or a mixture of beef with turkey or chicken.
- Onion – red onion has the biggest flavor, but white or yellow will work too.
- Make your own taco seasoning
- Cheese – for more bite, shred some pepper jack cheese.
Best Meat For Meatloaf
Honestly, ground beef works the best in this taco meatloaf. But if you want to give it a bit more spice, I suggest adding some spicy sausage to it too!
You can make meatloaf with ground chicken or turkey too. But I suggest mixing in some ground beef with the turkey and chicken to give it more flavor. The chicken and turkey is so lean that it often has a milder flavor.
What To Eat With Meatloaf
This is a full-flavored family dinner that everyone will love. Let the taco meatloaf stay the center of attention and serve it with your favorite salad on the side.
Some of my favorite keto sides to eat with keto meatloaf are Keto Cottage Cheese Chicken Salad and Keto Zucchini Ribbons With Bacon. They are both super-tasty but still mild enough to let the meatloaf stand out.
Storing Keto Meatloaf
Add this meatloaf to your weekly meal prep. It will stay fresh in the refrigerator for up to three days.
Keep it in an airtight container and reheat it in the microwave – it’s so easy!
You can also freeze this meatloaf, too! Store the cooked meatloaf in a freezer-safe bag and keep it in the freezer for up to six months.
