This pie is SO delicious!  I made it for dinner tonight, and hubs gave it two thumbs !  Hubs rarely gives anything his full endorsement, so I decided this one should definitely go on the blog!  It only takes about 30 minutes total to make, and is very easy.

Taco Pie


Refrigerated   pie crust
1 pound ground beef
3 Tbsp homemade taco seasoning (below) or 1 pouch commercial seasoning.
1/2 cup chopped onion
1/2 cup salsa
1 cup lettuce, shredded
1 medium tomato, diced
1 cup sharp cheddar cheese, shredded
Sour cream (optional)


 1.  Preheat oven to 350 degrees.
 2.  Pat into pie pan ( preferably glass), sprinkle with a pinch of taco seasoning.  Bake  7-10 minutes or until         it just begins to brown.
 3.  In a medium skillet, cook beef and onions until beef is browned and cooked through.  Drain.
 4.  Add salsa and all remaining taco seasoning.  Cook 3-4 minutes.
 5.  Pour into crust and top with cheese.  Bake for 15 minutes, or until crust is golden brown.
 6.  Let cool for 5 minutes.  Top with sour cream,  lettuce and  tomato.

Slice and Serve!

You could also top with some guacamole, or put a little ranch on top!

Below is the recipe for the homemade taco seasoning I used

Homemade Taco Seasoning


1 Tbsp chili powder
2 tsp onion powder
1 tsp garlic powder
1 tsp ground cumin
1 tsp paprika
1 tsp oregano
1 tsp salt

Mix all ingredients together in a bowl.  Makes 3 Tablespoons of mix, which equals the flavor of 1 pouch of commercial taco seasoning.  Salt and heat can be adjusted to your preference.
