When you want something savory, these taco fat bombs will do the trick and help satisfy your cravings on the ketogenic diet. And these are not just reserved for Tuesdays. I can eat them any day of the week. Most fat bombs you see are sweet, but sometimes you need a little something salty. Well, here you go!
I chopped the olives in a food processor. I love my little one and use if for so many things especially all the nuts I eat and cook with on a low carb diet.

How do you make taco fat bombs?
Start with some very basic ingredients – you may have them on hand. The base is cream cheese, taco seasoning, and pepper jack cheese – I’ve added in some chopped olives and green peppers to spice it up.
Yes, it’s a lot of mixing. You can alternate between the fork and spatula. Or get your hands in there if you need to! It’s so easy, you can make a half a batch or quarter of a batch at a time to satisfy your cravings. Quantities of the ingredients can be deviated to your liking.
When it comes to snacks, I’m more of a savory person. While I don’t really miss sweets on a low carb diet, I do miss chips and pretzels. I’ve always craved salt – so these taco fat bombs are a necessity. If I use full fat cream cheese, I make sure to not eat too much because the flavors are amazing and I’d find myself eating the whole thing. And non-keto friends will enjoy this as a appetizer or spread on bread – it makes an amazing grilled cheese!

I’ve served these on chopped peppers which kinda remind me of taco chip shapes. You can also serve them on your low carb chips or cloud bread. However you serve it, I hope you like it!
