Taco pie is a simple and hearty meal perfect for supper after one has spent too much time shoveling out the snow plow wash, so they can get into their driveway.
It’s also a nice blend of midwestern hot dishes and Mexican foods.
If you time it right, you can put the pie in the oven and get the snow blown out of the driveway before the pie is done.
