Taco Pie!

Happy Cinco de Mayo! I hope you are using today as an excuse to make your favorite Mexican dish! :) One of my favorite Mexican-inspired recipes is Taco Pie! It is a fresh spin on Taco Salad... and, in my opinion, much more filling.

What you will need:

1 lb ground beef
6 biscuits
8 oz Mexican Blend shredded cheese
1 TBSP Beef bouillon
1 Onion, chopped
2 Green Bell Peppers, chopped
3/4 Cup Tomato Paste
3/4 Cup Water
1 Package Taco Seasoning OR make your own
Salt and Pepper to Taste
1 cup Kidney Beans
Shredded Lettuce
2 Tomatoes, Chopped

First, make your biscuits. I recommend making your own:

1 Cup Flour
1/2 Cup Milk
2 TBSP Mayonnaise
1 TSP Baking Powder
1/2 TSP Salt
1/4 TSP Baking Soda

Mix ingredients. Grease Cupcake pan. Bake at 375 degrees for 12 minutes or until tops are
browned. Yields 6 muffins. Set aside.

Next, Brown Meat. Add onion, bell pepper, taco seasoning, beef bouillon and 3/4 cup of water. Simmer for 10 minutes, covered. Add tomato paste, and salt and pepper to taste. simmer for another 5 minutes, covered.

While meat mixture is simmering, cut cooled muffins in half and place on the bottom of a 9 inch pie dish.
Layer meat mixture on top of the biscuits.

Add Kidney Beans and 6 oz of cheese.

Bake at 400 degrees for 15 minutes.

Remove from oven. Cut pie slice and top with shredded lettuce, tomatoes, shredded cheese, salsa and tortilla chips to scoop.

MUY delicioso!!
