Taco Pie with Mashed Potato Crust

Tired of the same old Taco Pie over and over again? Try this Taco Pie with Mashed Potato Crust and you will immediately have a new family favorite.

Not only is the meat flavored with Taco Seasoning, but the Mashed Potato are as well which works great in this easy recipe.

We thoroughly enjoyed this new spin on a Taco Pie and had absolutely no leftovers. Even though we were not 6 people having this, I listed this as enough for 6 servings and by that I mean 6 adult size servings.

Therefore if you have more kids than adults to feed, this dish can be stretched to up to 8 servings easily.

This easy Taco Pie starts with a seasoned mashed potato crust and is full of the Mexican flavors without the heat which makes it very kid-friendly

One thing to note** : the Mashed Potatoes must be as dry as you can make it. Add only the minimum amount of Milk and Butter and very little Salt and Pepper as Taco Seasoning will be added to the crust in the recipe.

Another way to dry out the Mashed Potatoes is to stir-fry the cooked potatoes prior to mashing using no oil or butter in a dry pan. Do stir continuously to avoid burning.

Serve immediately as this dish can not be warmed up later. Well, you can if you like warm lettuce and Avocado but I would not recommend that 😉 .
