Taco Pie

This recipe is something I got from my mother in law.  When Eric and I got married, he missed his mom’s cooking and I don’t blame him because I missed my mother’s cooking.  This was one of his favorite recipes that she made.  I will be honest, I wasn’t a huge fan as a picky eater but it has grown on me and it is a nice change from the normal chicken, rice and vegetables that I usually make.

Its nice to have tacos without having them in a tortilla sometimes too.  This is a great alternative to the normal taco recipe!  I believe this recipe is really old that she has had for awhile.  But to be honest I lost the recipe myself.  Yes, I have made it that many times that I have it memorized!  I hope you enjoy it as much as we do!

See the receipe below for details.  

I hope you enjoy!
