I whipped this together tonight when I had completely drawn a blank on supper. This turned out incredibly well, even considering the fact I was lost to start with. The heat level is a lil up there w/ this dish, even w/ a mild taco seasoning. Please, taste and adjust accordingly. Any type of ground meat can be used, or even omitted and replaced w/ beans. I've fallen in love w/ this meal and hope u do too.

How to Make Deep Dish Taco Pie

Step-by-Step

  1. Preheat oven to 400 degrees. Saute onions and garlic w/ EVOO over medium heat in a medium size pot for about 3 minutes, should still be crisp. Add ground meat, using a potato masher to get out large lumps. Drain meat.
  2. Add picante sauce, cheese, olives and taco seasoning to pot. Mix while meat continues to drain. Once all grease has been removed, stir meat, onion and garlic into sauce mixture.
  3. Roll bottom crust out in 9in pie pan. I prefer glass. Press crust down to fit pan. Pour in meat mixture, smoothing. Roll top crust over mixture, crimping edges and cutting vent holes. Brush w/ egg wash, sprinkle w/ italian seasoning or parsley and bake. Allow to rest @ least 10 minutes before serving.
