Recipe by Karen Foiles

This is almost like Taco Pie but better! All these ingredients can be purchased at The Dollar Tree or Aldi grocery stores. This recipe is a budget cooking recipe!

We loved this! My kids actually asked for second and third helpings. The only thing I will do differently next time is to add a layer of bell peppers and onions so that there are some veggies in it. I don't usually like one dish meals, but this was really good.
