Taco Pie

It's Tasty Tuesday! Here's another weeknight favorite that's easy, quick, and always a pleaser (this is one of Carolyne's favorites, too!)

Taco Pie
Serves 4 - 6

1 frozen deep dish pie shell, thawed
1 lb. ground meat (I only use ground turkey at my house, but of course you can use ground beef or chuck)
1 taco seasoning packet
2 - 3 cups Tortilla chips (I always use Fritos) crushed
1 8 oz. sour cream
1 - 1 1/2 cup shredded cheese (I use medium cheddar and monterey jack)
optional - refried beans or black olives

Preheat oven to 400 degrees. Pre-cook pie shell for 10-12 minutes. Set aside. Scramble ground meat, and drain. Return to skillet and add taco seasoning according to packet directions. Layer ingredients in pie shell: 1/2 of crushed chips, meat, sour cream, cheese, and remaining crushed chips. (If you choose to also use refried beans and/or olives, just add those before putting the chips on top.) Return to oven and cook another 12 - 15 minutes.

I serve this with Spanish Rice and salsa.
