Description

I never would have imagined something like taco pie until this recipe. It sounds strange, but the outcome is incredible. It makes a great midweek meal or snack as it's so easy to put together and outrageously versatile.  Believe me, it's a crowd pleaser.

Note

I simply top the pie with a parsley garnish and dip it in salsa. You can, however, add traditional toppings such as tomatoes, lettuce, refried beans, etc. Or you can eve put the salsa on top.

As always, adjust the seasoning according to your liking.
