Here’s a different way to serve tacos for lunch or dinner. Taco Pie has the great taste of a taco, but is served as a pie. Just like a taco, compliment it with sour cream and salsa. Add a side of fruit and tortilla chips for a complete meal. You’ll love the easy crust using crescent rolls. This recipe is quick enough for a family meal and fancy enough for company. The recipe serves 8, but if you only need 4 servings, freeze one pie for later.
1 lb ground turkey or hamburger
1 pkg. taco seasoning
1 can (8oz) refrig. crescent rolls
6 oz. shredded cheddar cheese
2 cans (8oz) tomato sauce
Brown turkey or hamburger. Stir in tomato sauce and taco seasonings. Simmer 5 min.
Unroll crescent roll dough and press onto bottom and sides of ungreased 12 inch pizza pan ( or two 8 inch pie tins) Prick bottom and sides of pan with a fork. (I find that making it in two pie tins is easier to serve.)
Bake crust at 375 degrees for 10-12 min. until golden brown. Remove from oven. Cover crust with meat mixture.
If you only want four servings, freeze the crust with the meat for another meal later.
Top with cheese and return to oven until cheese begins to melt.
Remove from oven and top with 1 cup shredded lettuce and 1 1/2 cup chopped tomatoes.
Serve Taco Pie with sour cream and salsa. Optional items include black olives, jalapenos, avocado, and beans.
Makes 8 servings.
