Taco Pie

This recipe is so good! If you love tacos and pie, you will love this. It's pretty easy and delicious. What I love about this recipe is that it was something different for Taco Tuesday. I love tacos but every so often, I want a change. The change is usually hard vs. soft tacos.

This recipe was a welcome change and hubby loved it. And I love tacos any which way!

Chop onions and poblano chile.

Saute in a pan. 

Oil the pie plate and add some of the canned tomatoes. 

Place tortillas into the pie plate. 

Add meat to pan and cook. Once it is cooked add tomatoes, cinnamon and chili powder. 

Add mixture on top of the tortillas. 

Add cheese.

Arrange the tortilla strips on top of the meat. 

Add more cheese and bake.
