Taco Pie = Winning Family Taco Night
Tacos are a big thing in our house – like I’m pretty sure they are in most houses especially if you have kids.
And I love all of them.
But all the toppings are what make tacos right? Lettuce, tomatoes, salsa, guacamole, jalapeños, black beans if you’re my oldest son – the more the better. And of course lots and lots of cheese.
So the tacos are easy but it’s getting all the toppings together and on the table that can be kind of a pain in the neck.
Am I right?
Here’s where this easy Loaded Taco Pie recipe comes into play. One giant beef taco for the table that everyone can dive into.
How To Make Taco Pie
Grab a pie crust from the store and follow the package instructions for a one-crust baked shell.
Make sure you make a bunch of holes in the crust with a fork like this before it goes in the oven so it doesn’t puff up…
When it comes out nice and brown and crispy, you can pile on the beef filling, cover it with cheese and get it back in the oven for 15 minutes.
Now start piling on all your taco toppings. Lettuce, tomatoes, jalapeños, peppers, you name it. Whatever toppings you love on tacos you can throw on top of this beef taco pie.
You can even make this a low carb taco pie by simply spraying the pie dish with cooking spray and omitting the pie crust all together. Also feel free to swap out the beef for turkey or chicken too!
And you’re probably going to want a big scoop of sour cream and guacamole on the side, too.
I mean we are talking about a taco pie recipe here, you’ve gotta bring the guac!
Is Taco Pie A Low Carb Meal?
Like I said, this taco pie is made with pie crust, but if you want a low carb taco pie recipe just forget the crust! Follow the instructions after the crust bakes and you’ll be good to go.
Maybe you’ll end up with more of a taco casserole instead but it’s the same flavors, and they are amazing!Print
