Taco Pie3

Have you ever had a taco pie? How about a taco pie made with ground turkey?

I love using ground turkey in recipes whenever I can. It is a great choice for those avoiding red meat, or if you just like the idea of a lean option for your recipes.

This recipe is always a huge hit with my family, and everyone loves when it is taco pie night! It is super simple to make too, you won’t believe how easy this all comes together.

To get started, just brown your meat and drain if necessary, then add one full bottle of your favorite salsa flavor and heat through.

Next, pour the mixture into a pie pan with the bottom crust already in place. Top with shredded cheese. I love using a four cheese blend, but any flavor will do. We are huge cheese lovers here so I always use a lot of cheese.

The flakey pie crust adds just the right touch to the Mexican inspired flavors of the filling.
