Taco Pie

When I was a kid my Mom started making this dish that she called Taco Pie. She found it off the back of some stovetop box and kind of ran with it. I remember being in High School when she first made it, and let me tell you it was awesome! Years passed and I grew up. Although I was still living under my Mother’s roof, I was now “cooking” for myself. It wasn’t until last year when Taco Pie popped in my head. I asked my Mom for the recipe, but it had long since been lost. So, I had to improvise.

This is not the first time I have made this dish and it certainly won’t be the last. That said, it is my first time sharing it with you!
