Taco Pie

taco pie     For my second Pie Challenge recipe, I made a TACO PIE. I love a good taco but they are soo messy and crumble… so my tacos typically end up in a mess on my place. So why not start off in a open place.

Starting with a mixture of browned ground beef and black beans, cooked in a skillet with chili powder, cumin, garlic salt, onion salt, paprika, and smoked paprika.


Pour mixture in a pie pan set with a crescent roll stretched covering the base.


Bake in oven at 350 degrees for 15 minutes. Once crust begins to golden, add cheddar cheese to the top and return to the oven for 5 minutes until the cheese is melted.
