Our Paleo Family

Taco Pie (Paleo, Primal, Whole30 and THM-S Options)

After the success of cheeseburger pie, the next logical step was taco pie, right? We love tacos and we love pie so why not combine them? This is one of those recipes I tweaked a bit every time I made it and finally just decided I needed to publish a recipe already. They were all good, but all slightly different.

I decided to ultimately go with this one that I made during my most recent Whole30. That means you can make this as written and it is completely grain free and dairy free. If you are enjoying the keto diet right now and can handle dairy, by all means, load up on the cheese and sour cream. Or to keep the dairy out, but still keep it keto, top with a generous serving of sliced avocado or guacamole.

One caveat: be careful with the salsa you use in the recipe. Many on the market contain added sugar so read those labels carefully.

Here’s the version with cheese…

This is a really adaptable recipe: make it paleo, make it keto, serve it like you would normally serve tacos, serve it with salad, whatever you and your family prefer. It’s quick and easy and like most of my recipes, there are sneaky veggies in there!

Next time you’re in the mood for pie, maybe give this taco version a try!

Instructions
  1. Add meat, vegetables and spices to a large skillet (preferably cast iron or other that can go in the oven) set over medium high. Brown meat and veggies, stirring occasionally. This will take about 15 minutes.
  2. Add tomato paste and cook for 3 more minutes, allowing this to brown.
  3. Add salsa, broth and coconut aminos and scrape up the browned bits from the bottom of the skillet. Reduce heat to low and allow this to simmer 5-10 minutes.
  4. Taste for seasoning. Add salt, pepper or more of any of the other spices to your taste.
  5. While filling is simmering, prepare the topping by mixing all topping ingredients in a medium bowl and whisking together until well combined.
  6. If desired, sprinkle additional cheese over meat mixture.
  7. Pour topping over all this other goodness. You can also add cheese to the very top at this point if you like.
  8. Bake at 350 for 30 minutes, until browned and bubbly on top.
  9. Serve with your favorite taco toppings and veggies on the side.
