Notes

  • Ground Beef: You can use ground beef with whatever fat content you prefer. 
  • Make it Keto: Use the crust from our keto meat pie recipe. Use a ground beef with higher fat content, a keto-friendly taco seasoning, and a keto-friendly salsa with no added sugar. Leave out the refried beans and the corn. Onions are up to you.
  • Make it Gluten Free: Use a gluten free frozen pie crust and make sure your taco seasoning is gluten free.
  • Make it Dairy Free: Make sure your pie crust doesn't include any dairy ingredients and use a vegan/dairy-free cheese.
