The best taco pie recipes - 11 recipes

Taco Pie is a cross between traditional Mexican tacos and classic American pie. If you’re looking for some new dinner inspiration that is as delicious as it is easy, then taco pie is a great choice! Taco pie is prepared just like tacos, the only difference is that it’s baked like a pie. Substitute the taco shells from your usual taco night and instead make a taco pie with a simple home-made or store-bought pie crust. Once it’s ready, you can top your taco pie with all your favorite taco toppings, like cheddar cheese, guacamole, jalapenos…taco pie is a great, versatile main dish that can also be served as an appetizer or for even for a party!

If you like this, you'll definitely like: taco pie with pie crust, chicken taco pie, tortilla pie, lasagna, tex mex
