Taco Pie Easy Dinner

Sometimes there just isn’t enough time to make things the right way and you have cheat a little. Tonight I made a Taco Pie, even with a few short cuts it was a deliciously easy dinner.

By cheating I mean I didn’t create the crust, I used Pilsbury’s Gluten Free dough. I took the dough and pressed it into the pie plate.

Meanwhile I was browning the ground beef and then added in the taco seasoning.

Yes, that would be my son, he kept photo bombing my shoots. It’s a new hobby of his…lol.

Next spread the meat into the pie crust and cook it for 10 minutes, remove and add the cheese. Then place it back in the oven for a few minutes to melt the cheese.

Take it out, let it cool and add your choice of toppings. I used tomatoes, lettuce, black olives and finished with a little guacamole on the side.
