Taco Pie

Posted by Jennifer (the student) on December 12, 2012

I found this recipe a couple of weeks ago and I think I have make it at least three times already. It is so easy and it tastes great on a cold night. We love the original version of this recipe but I am always looking for ways to add more vegetables. I like it with avocado but I think it would be good with a dollop of plain Greek yogurt too.
