Taco Pie. . . Yuuuuummmmm

My old roommate, Katie, introduced me to taco pie about 5 years ago, and it quickly became one of my favorite comfort meals. It’s super easy to make, pretty quick, and is exactly what you need after a crap day at work when you crave delicious calories to wash down with your bottle of wine. It’s not the most photogenic meal—but what it lacks in looks, it more than makes up for in yumminess!

1 lb ground beef or ground turkey

1/4 cup diced onion

1 packet taco seasoning

1 box refrigerated pie crusts (at room temperature)

1 can corn, drained

1/2 cup salsa

1 cup shredded cheese

sour cream

Preheat your oven to 400°. Brown the meat along with the diced onion, and add the taco seasoning according to the directions on the package. Unroll one of the pie crusts in an ungreased, shallow pie plate. Add a layer of taco meat, and then spread half of the corn, half of the salsa and half of the cheese on top. Repeat the layers with the remaining ingredients, and then top with the other pie crust. Be sure to pinch and fold the edges and pierce the top crust with a fork several times. Bake for about 30 minutes or until the crust is golden. Top each slice with a dollop of sour cream and DIG IN!

About mommachine

I am a wife, mother, daughter, sister, friend and colleague. And trying to balance all of those roles at once can be utterly exhausting. Being the Type A control freak that I am, I try to run my life like a well-oiled machine. But sometimes the wheels get a bit squeaky (or just fly off completely, let's be honest). I have to slow down (yeah right, I know), give the different parts of my life a little tune-up and get back on the road.
