My family loves tacos.
Let me repeat that…
MY. FAMILY. LOVES. TACOS.
Seriously, they’d eat them every day if they could.
Sometimes I don’t feel like a regular taco.
Enter my girl, Tiffanee at One Crazy Cookie.
She came up with a new spin on our Fitz Family Taco Night.
The boys had a blast making this one.
And eating it too!
Taco Pie = $ 10.72
Family of 4 = $2.68 per person
1 lb ground beef $2.49
¾ of a large onion, diced $.50
taco mix $.88
Brown 1 pound of hamburger with 1/2 cup chopped onions, drain. Add 1 packet of taco seasoning mix and 3/4 cup water, simmer while you make the crust.
1 can refried beans (optional) $1.29
2 cups flour $.50
2 1/2 teaspoons yeast (or 1 packet) $.34
1 Tablespoon sugar $.30
2 teaspoons finely chopped onion (optional) (from above)
3/4 teaspoon salt $.05
2/3 cup warm water
2 Tablespoons oil $.15
1/2 cup crushed corn tortilla chips $.20
shredded cheddar cheese $1.94
shredded lettuce $.79
chopped tomatoes $.52
sour cream $.25
Preheat Oven to 375 degrees.
In a medium bowl, combine 1 cup flour, yeast, sugar, salt and onion. Mix well. Add warm water and oil to the flour mixture. Mix by hand until smooth. Stir in chips and enough remaing flour to make a stiff dough. (I used 2 cups). Spread into a well greased pie pan, forming a rim around the edge. Cover and let rise in a warm place for 10 minutes.
If desired spread 1 can of refried beans on the bottom.
Spread taco meat over top of beans.
Sprinkle with some shredded cheese about 1/2 cup.
Bake at 375 degrees for 30-35 minutes until the edge is crisp and light golden brown.
Sprinkle with cheese, lettuce, tomatoes and serve with some sour cream.
Meaty Morsel: Let the kids help you make the pie crust. Kids love getting their hands into mixes and dough while baking. Also you can let them spread out the refried beans and sprinkle the cheese. Let them get creative with their toppings. It’s a great opportunity to get them to try new foods.
I had some jarred jalapenos in the fridge that I added to mine…I like it spicy!
