WHAT'S FOR DINNER ~ Impossibly Easy Taco Pie

What we had for dinner tonight was a new recipe to us. We love Mexican and had bought some biscuit a couple of weeks ago as part of a drug store deal.
The recipe calls to be used in a 9 inch glass pie plate but I used a small casserole dish instead. Pie plate would be great for presentation but no matter what kind of dish you use it was tasty, super fast and easy to make.

Impossibly Easy Taco Pie
Recipe came from Best of Betty Crocker 2010
Prep time 15 minutes
 Start to finish 50 minutes
serves 6

1 lb of  ground turkey breast or ground beef ( we used beef)
1 medium onion chopped (1/2 cup) no onion in house.
1 package (1 oz) Old El Paso Taco seasoning mix or what is on sale
1 can (4.5 oz) Old El Paso chopped green chiles, undrained or what is on sale
1/2 cup of Original Bisquick mix
1 Cup of milk
2 eggs
1/2 cup shredded Colby Monterey Jack Cheese blend (2 oz)
1 medium tomato chopped (3/4 cup)  I used some can tomatoes instead
1 1/2 cups of shredded lettuce ( I skipped this
2 medium green onions sliced if desired ( I skipped this)

Heat oven to 400 degrees. Spray 9 inch glass pie plate with cooking spray. In 10 inch skillet, cook beef and onion over medium high heat, stirring occasionally until no longer pink. Sprinkle taco seasoning mix over meat, mix well.

Spread meat mixture in pie plate. Top evenly with green chiles.

In medium bowl, stir Bisquick mix,  milk and eggs with wire whisk or fork until blended. Pour in pie plate.

Bake 25 minutes. Top with cheese and tomato.

Bake 2 to 3 minutes longer or until cheese is melted.  Let stand 5 minutes before serving.  Sprinkle with lettuce and onions.

Serve with refried beans and taco chips. Salsa and sour cream on top of pie mix if desired.
Serving calories if using turkey 250 calories. This was very tasty and will be put into my recipe book for another time. Grace
