    BlondieItaliana's Note:

    This is a pretty simple Taco Pie recipe... tastes great as listed using refrigerated cresent rolls, but you could also you a pre-made pie shell as well. You can play around with ingredients to your liking as well. I have used rinsed & drained black beans, drained whole kernal corn, etc. This is fantastic served alongside some homemade guacamole and Jiffy Corn Casserole (5 Ingredients) Easy & Delicious! - perfect for Mexican night in. As an FYI: I happen to use Tostito's corn chips in the recipe, I've also made it with Frito's, but Dorito's seem to burn. * Note, I brown the ground meat with 2 teaspoons of refrigerated chopped garlic because the Italian in me just can't brown meat solo.. :-)

      My husband and I enjoyed this for our dinner tonight. It was great because I had all of the ingredients on hand and it was very easy. I did reduce the amounts a little bit by only putting the crushed tortillas on the top and only a single layer of cheese. I also sauteed the onion with the ground beef. I don't think it changed it overall, but I was just trying to make it a little less heart attack friendly! :) Still, a nice, quick and cheap meal. Thank you very much and it'll be a good addition to our cookbook!
