Taco Pie

This is old favorite dating back to my teens. My Mom had to make two because one of my brothers would devour it. If his friends found out Taco Pie was on the menu at our house, they would try to figure out a way to get invited for dinner. This savory dish is a great quickie meal.

Taco Pie - Brown one pound of lean ground meat, drain well. Return meat to pan, add one envelope of Taco Seasoning Mix and 3/4 cup of water and cook meat per the package directions on the Taco Seasoning envelope. While the meat is browning, get out a glass pie dish or an 8 x 8 glass, oven safe dish and open up a tube of crescent rolls. Roll out and press the crescent roll dough together into dish to form a crust to cover the bottom of the dish and halfway up the sides of the dish. When meat is finished cooking dump into crust and spread out evenly. Crumble a couple of handfuls of Nacho Cheese Doritos and sprinkle over meat. Ice the meat with low-fat sour cream (this will be messy). Crumble some more Doritos over the sour cream, garnish with sliced black olives and shredded cheddar cheese. Bake in a preheated 350 degree oven. Check after 20 minutes. Pie is done when crust is browned and cheese melted to your liking. Let pie rest for about 10 minutes before slicing. Bueno!
