• 1 lb ground beef (preferably lean)
  • 1 tablespoon olive oil
  • 1 small onion, diced
  • 2 cloves garlic, minced
  • 1 bell pepper, diced
  • 1 teaspoon chili powder
  • 1 teaspoon ground cumin
  • 1/2 teaspoon paprika
  • Salt and pepper to taste
  • 1 cup low-carb tomato sauce
  • 1 cup salsa (sugar-free)
  • 1 cup shredded Mexican cheese blend
  • 1 cup shredded lettuce
  • 1/2 cup diced tomatoes
  • 1/4 cup sliced black olives (optional)
  • Fresh cilantro, for garnish (optional)
  • Avocado slices, for serving (optional)


  1. Preheat your oven to 375°F (190°C). Grease a 9×13 inch baking dish with cooking spray.
  2. In a large skillet, heat the olive oil over medium heat. Add the diced onion, minced garlic, and diced bell pepper. Sauté until softened, about 5 minutes.
  3. Add the ground beef to the skillet, breaking it up with a spoon. Cook until browned and no longer pink, about 8-10 minutes.
  4. Stir in the chili powder, ground cumin, paprika, salt, and pepper. Cook for an additional 2 minutes to toast the spices.
  5. Add the low-carb tomato sauce and salsa to the skillet. Stir well to combine and simmer for 5 minutes.
  6. Spread half of the meat mixture evenly over the bottom of the prepared baking dish. Sprinkle half of the shredded cheese over the meat mixture.
  7. Repeat layering with the remaining meat mixture and shredded cheese.
  8. Bake in the preheated oven for 20-25 minutes, or until the cheese is melted and bubbly.
  9. Remove from the oven and let it cool slightly before serving.
  10. Garnish with shredded lettuce, diced tomatoes, sliced black olives, fresh cilantro, and avocado slices if desired.
  11. Serve warm and enjoy your delicious low-carb Mexican beef lasagna!
