On the menu tonight, Taco Pie

Don’t you ever get tired of hearing “what’s for dinner?” I know I do. So I have started meal planning and putting it on the fridge so I can avoid this question. When I started meal planning my go to site was/is Pintrest! Love it. I have so many boards of food, Chicken dishes, Pork, Beef, Seafood and even Vegetarian. A little bit of everything anything that I think we might like to eat. Eating Paleo is not restricting at all as some people say, if anything it gives us more ideas and there are millions of recipes out there. I found this little beauty on there and couldn’t wait to try it. Here is all the information you will need. Hope you like it as much as we did, and if you try it out, let us know how it went.

The first time we made this recipe we used crust #1 and it feel apart and made a good mix of flavors. Next time we are going to try crust #2 so I will tell you how that goes. (i'll add pictures once we try it)

I got the recipe from Paleo Newbie and the second pie crust from Coconut Mamma

We changed the recipe a little to fit us and to the fact that honey just cut up everything and put it in a bowl at once. I thought it was better this way however because it blended the flavors nicely. The taco seasoning recipe was a huge hit and honey just loved it, I ended up making a huge jar of it to keep in stock for all the time use!
