What a fun twist on a couple of favorites here in the SFFS house. Taco! In pie form! Tacos and pie! This was really good....IT Guy LOVED it...and really easy. You can use your own homemade crust or to make it even easier, use store bought pie crust. This is great hearty meal that comes together in a flash. And seriously....who doesn’t love tacos?
