Deep Dish Taco Pie

_MG_9147

This past week, I have been trying new recipes, and most of them from the food blog Plain Chicken.  If you haven't yet met Stephanie, then head on over and check out the yummy food she shares.
 
Deep Dish Taco Pie caught my eye immediately.  I love Mexican food and anything casserole, so this one was a must add to my meal plan.
 
The verdict:  A big thumbs up from the family.
 
This makes a huge batch, so unless you are cooking for a crowd, you may want to halve the recipe.
