Gently fry the diced onion in oil until clear then add the meat, breaking it up into tiny pieces as it cooks and browns. This should take up to 5 minutes.

Mix the shredded/grated cheese and almond flour/meal in a microwaveable bowl. Add the cream cheese. Microwave on HIGH for 1 minute.
Stir then microwave on HIGH for another 30 seconds. Remove and stir again. Add the egg, salt, and spices. Mix.
Place the Fat Head pastry between 2 pieces of baking parchment/paper and roll into a thin, rectangle (see photos here). Remove the top baking paper/parchment.
Cut the Fat Head pastry into circles using a cookie cutter or a glass tumbler (I managed to make 15 taco cups). Place each one on an upside down, oiled, muffin tray OR individual silicon muffin cases. Then bake at 220C/425F for 12-15 minutes, or until browned on the top.
Remove each taco cup, place on a baking tray lined with baking parchment/paper and bake again for 2 minutes to allow the inside to brown and crisp slightly.
