Taco Pie

This is a great recipe to have for a "Family Taco Night". (Don't forget to enter the giveway here.)  It is one of those tried and true recipes and one I had forgotten about for several years.  I had this idea in my head that it was hard to make...wrong.  It went together really quick and was as delicious as I remembered, possibly even better.  It is a good one and one of my hubby's faves! The family actually saved me a small piece this time.
Taco Pie
Meat Filling:
Brown 1 pound of hamburger with 1/2 cup chopped onions, drain. Add  1 packet of taco seasoning mix and 3/4 cup water, simmer while you make the crust. (or about 15 minutes).

1 can refried beans (optional)

Taco Crust
1 3/4-2 cups flour
2 1/2 teaspoons yeast (or 1 packet)
1 Tablespoon sugar
2 teaspoons finely chopped onion (optional)
3/4 teaspoon salt
2/3 cup warm water
2 Tablespoons oil
1/2 cup crushed corn tortilla chips


1 1/2 cup shredded cheddar cheese
1 cup shredded lettuce
chopped tomatoes
sliced olives
sour cream

Preheat Oven to 375 degrees.
In a medium bowl, combine 1 cup flour, yeast, sugar, salt and onion.  Mix well.  Add warm water and oil to the flour mixture.  Mix by hand until smooth. Stir in chips and enough remaing flour to make a stiff dough. (I used 2 cups). Spread into a well greased pie pan, forming a rim around the edge.  Cover and let rise in a warm place for 10 minutes.
If desired spread 1 can of refried beans on the bottom.
Spread taco meat over top of beans.
Sprinkle with some shredded cheese about 1/2 cup.
Bake at 375 degrees for 30-35 minutes until the edge is crisp and light golden brown..
Sprinkle with cheese, lettuce, tomatoes and sliced olives.
Serve each piece with some sour cream.
*This is a versatile recipe. You can tailor it to fit your tastes.
