Keto Huevos Rancheros Skillet Casserole

I’m obsessed with this Keto Huevos Rancheros Skillet Casserole. It totally reminds me of the chile rellenos casseroles that showed up at the potlucks of my Northern California childhood in the hippy-dippy 1970’s. Back in those days a lot more than THC-A appeared at parties, but that’s a story for another blog post.

Keto Huevos Rancheros Skillet Casserole

This heavenly one-pot huevos rancheros style dish is super easy to make. Fry up an onion in olive oil, while that’s happening, whisk eggs and combine them with salsa and cheese. Dump that stuff over the onion, then bake in the oven and you’re good to go. When you take the casserole out of the oven be sure to use an oven mitt. That’s something Mr. Pantry sometimes forgets when he’s helping me in the kitchen. Don’t do that!

One-Pot Keto Meal

This easy one-pot keto egg dish is fantastic for the Keto Diet. With only 7 ingredients total, including the salt and pepper, it’s easy to throw together for breakfast, lunch, or dinner. We’re big fans of one-pot egg dishes over here!

Given that Keto Huevos Rancheros Skillet Casserole is made with eggs, cheese, and some awesome Picante flavoring it’s basically a Keto Crustless Quiche. To take your Keto Diet game up a notch, serve this with sliced avocados and sour cream.

Father’s Day Keto Brunch Recipe

I like to mix my ethnic flavors and serve Keto Huevos Rancheros Skillet Casserole with the Paleo Bagels recipe from my New York Times Best Selling book, Paleo Cooking from Elana’s Pantry. I’ve provided a special sneak peek of that recipe on the website for you as well. That’s what I’ll be serving for Father’s Day, but we love this combination so much that we have Keto Huevos and Bagels all year long!

    • DHR, I’m so happy to hear that I’m part of your church potluck via this recipe and that it is a great success!

  1. You may combine this with my earlier comment:

    I just made the recipe to take to a potluck :) It disappeared, which is the best recommendation at such a dinner.

    When I tried to follow the ingredient list I discovered that 2 cups of grated cheese is actually 8 ounces, not 4 ounces. Hoping someone will correct the recipe!

    • Susan, sorry I don’t have any way to combine comments. I Just remeasured 4 ounces of grated cheese and the yield is 2 cups. Perhaps you are packing your cheese into the cups. So glad to hear this casserole disappeared at a potluck :-)

  2. Does it need to be reheated if it has been refrigerated? Is it better the 2nd day?

    I am going to a potluck, how is it at room temperature?

  3. Wow, Wow! This looks so delicious, I have a restaurant and I always try to add new items to my menu finally found this on your blog. Can’t wait to try it my own restaurant. Thank You for sharing all the recipe and instruction with us Elana.

  4. Is there another place I could find the nutrition info for this recipe? I’ve recently started on a keto diet and still need to keep track of macros. It’s still too early with this way of eating to know how certain foods and recipes will affect me. Thank you!

  5. This is delicious and yes, it is so easy! My iron skillet is 12″, so I baked it in a different, ceramic pan, but it turned out so pretty! My husband must have commented five times how good it is! And I make crustless quiches regularly. This will be made many times. I will say that my casserole dish made it deeper, so it took a lot longer to bake, I would go with a larger dish next time, maybe an 8″ square one. YUM! Thanks for a great recipe!

    • Nancy, thanks for all of your awesome comments here and on Instagram! I’m so glad that you and your husband are enjoying this casserole! We love it too :-)
