    mommyoffour's Note:

    This is different than the regular taco pies. It uses spaghetti as its crust or shell. It’s very good; I hope you decide to try it.

      while i cant really give a true review of this because i had to use what was on hand which resulted in too many alterations, i am giving this 5 huge stars simply for the theory and the awesome awesome spaghetti "crust". in case anyone is interested in my alterations, i sauteed 4 cloves of garlic with the onion and ground beef and omitted the green pepper. i used taco seasoning instead of chili powder and salt (and thinned the tomato sauce a bit with water to compensate for the thickening caused by the taco seasoning). before adding the meat mixture to the crust i spread a very thin layer of sour cream, then added the meat sauce and topped with dabs of sour cream, diced green chilies and the additional cheese (which i assumed to go on top but wasnt listed in your steps). we loved the way this really formed a pie and held its shape when cut and served. so so good, i wish i had doubled (or tripled) this. the spaghetti crust will serve as a great base for all kinds of thicker meat and/or vegetable sauce toppings - thanks!

      Woohoo! This is awesome! I doubled it & used a 9x13" pan. I am so glad I did because there was 1 scoop left (there are 4 of us). EXCELLENT flavor, very easy. Make sure to post this in the Kid Friendly forum! Made for Cameraless Chef 6/08.
