Easy Baked Taco Pie

This is a really good way of having tacos, just as a meat pie. It's basically a loaded taco casserole.

It's great served over a bed of shredded lettuce and served with a side dish of Mexican Rice and a bit of fresh homemade guacamole, pico de gallo or your favorite salsa on the side.
