Here's a pic of our kids enjoying the Totally Taco Pie! Our oldest is 5 and our youngest is 2! We like to serve it to them salad-style (gotta get those veggies in where ya can)! Chop up the pieces of pie and add a handful of chopped greens, tomatoes, green onion, avocado and then drizzle with homemade ranch dressing or even a mix of sour cream/greek yogurt and salsa! 

serves 4-6

All You Need:

1 lb ground beef (or poultry)
2-3 Tbsp T&A Spice Co. Totally Taco seasoning (depends on how spicy you like it)
2/3 C water
3 eggs
1/2 C heavy cream OR coconut cream 
1/2 tsp garlic powder
1/2 tsp salt
1/4 tsp pepper
1 C shredded cheese

All You Do:

1. Preheat oven to 350℉
2. Brown ground meat on med-high in a large pan and drain before adding seasoning.
3. Mix Totally Taco seasoning and water in a small bowl (I like to use a small glass pyrex measuring cup) and pour over browned meat.
4. Reduce heat to med-low and simmer until water is gone and meat is saucy.
5. Transfer the beef mixture to a greased 9" pie dish and spread it into an even layer. 
6. Whisk together the eggs, cream, garlic powder, salt and pepper in a bowl (or large measuring cup). Pour the mixture over the beef and top with the cheese.
7. Bake for 30 mins.
8. Allow the pie to cool for 5 mins before cutting/serving.
