What happens when you combine tacos, waffles and chaffles? You end up with these delicious Keto Taco Chaffle Bowls! Your favorite cheese waffles are shaped into bowls and filled with taco beef, homemade pico de gallo, avocado and lime wedges. This is an easy summer dish your whole family will love!

To make the taco beef filling, I used my own homemade taco sauce but you can use any sugar-free taco sauce. You won't need the whole batch in this recipe but it will keep in the fridge for up tp a week, or in the freezer for months.

I also used homemade tomato salsa because fresh salsa is better and it's easy to make anyway, plus it's the perfect addition or other meals so you don't have any leftovers. These are some of the meals that will go well with some salsa:

How to Make Chaffle Bowls with a Waffle Bowl Maker

To make these chaffle bowls I used a Dash Waffle Bowl Maker which is not the only option you will find on Amazon but it's one of the most affordable options in the US and it's been working great for over two years.

I bought this waffle maker back when I was working on my Keto Chaffles Cookbook and have been using it to make all kinds of sweet and savory chaffles.

How about the UK? The same Dash Waffle Maker is a lot more expensive in the UK so you may want to check other options too. Waffle bowls have been popular and I think you'll also be able to find similar products in Canada and other countries.

Chaffle Bowls Without a Waffle Bowl Maker

If you can't get a waffle bowl maker, or you don't have space for a new gadget (I totally get that!), you can use a simple trick.

Use a Regular Waffle Maker

Just make a waffle in a regular round shaped waffle maker and then insert into a small bowl while it's still warm. You don't want it too crispy, you want to make sure it will still be flexible and can be shaped. The bowl should be small enough to snug tightly around the waffle.

Use a Muffin Pan to Make Smaller Cups

Another way would be to use a medium-large muffin pan to make 8 mini bowls. It's the same technique that I used to make my Keto Strawberry Chaffle Cupcakes, one of the recipes I created exclusively as part of a bonus e-book for Keto Chaffles Book. (You can find all about my bonus books and how to claim them here.)

If you are using the muffin tray option, you'll need to use a Dash Mini Waffle Maker (US store) and make 8 thinner waffles instead of the usual 4 waffles. That's because you want the chaffles as thin as you can get them to help them to bend inside the muffin pan.

To make these chaffle cups, spoon roughly 1 heaped tablespoon of the chaffle batter into the mini waffle maker, or about 1 heaped tablespoon or 2 level tablespoons (33 g/ 1.2 oz) if you want to be precise. Allow to soften for about 30 seconds and spread to the edge. You want a thin layer just enough to cover the holes. Cook for 1 minute and then lift the lid and allow to cool for 20 seconds. Tease the edges and remove with a fork. Immediately whilst warm press into a medium-large muffin tin to get the cupcake shape and allow to fully cool.

Ingredients (makes 4 chaffle bowls)

Chaffle bowls:
Taco filling:
  • 500 g ground beef (1.1 lb)
  • 2/3 cups taco sauce (160 ml/ 6 fl oz) - you can make your own taco sauce

I changed the way I ate in 2011, when I was diagnosed with Hashimoto’s, an autoimmune disease that affects the thyroid. I had no energy, and I found it more and more difficult to maintain a healthy weight.

That’s when I decided to quit sugar, grains, and processed foods, and to start following a whole-foods-based ketogenic approach to food.
