Air fryer low-carb taco casserole is a simple and quick family meal to throw together. Very little prep work involved and the air fryer does most of the work.
This post has been sponsored by Arizona Milk Producers. All thoughts and opinions are my own.
We love using our air fryer whenever we can. There are so many options when it comes to using it, and we make all types of meals in it. From appetizers, to desserts, to our main dish.
We recently had a delicious dinner cooked in our air fryer that featured a couple local products from Arizona Milk Producers. I love using local products whenever I can, and we have some great dairy products that are local to Arizona.
Last week, when we were shopping at Albertsons, we picked up some Daisy® Sour Cream and Danzeisen Dairy Heavy Cream. I was excited to use them in my air fryer low-carb taco casserole because I knew it would give this recipe that creaminess to take the casserole to another level.
This casserole is perfect for those who follow a low-carb lifestyle or follow the keto diet.
One of the most important things when making our family meals is having a well-balanced diet. These dairy products give us the benefits of the 9 essential nutrients, including protein, calcium and Vitamin D. All which help us keep a healthy immune system and develop strong bones and muscles for active lifestyles.
I highly recommend downloading the Albertsons app to your smart phone. They have a coupon page where you can add coupons you want to use right to your app. It’s so easy and there’s no need to worry about bringing any paper coupons with you to the store.
I also appreciate how organized Albertsons is and how easy it is to find the products I need. The sour cream and the heavy cream were exactly where I expected them to be, in the back of the store near the milk.
What side dishes go well with the low-carb taco casserole?
My favorite side dishes to serve with this casserole are vegetables, like steamed broccoli and cauliflower. A side salad is also great! However, feel free to serve with your favorite.
