I knew there was a reason I wanted to whip up my own taco seasoning and this was it.
My version of Vegetarian Taco Pie is quick, filling and delicious.
1 frozen pie crust
1 pound of Beefless Ground (I use Trader Joe's brand)
1/2 onion, chopped
1 red bell pepper, chopped
1 can of black beans (rinsed)
1 cup of shredded cheese (I used light Mexican blend)
Pre bake the pie shell according to the package directions.
In the meantime, saute onions and peppers with some olive oil until softened, add the Beefless Ground and stir to mix.
Add black beans and taco seasoning plus 1/4 cup of water, bring to boil then reduce heat, stirring to combine.
Remove pre baked pie crust from oven. Transfer the beefless/bean mixture to the pie crust. Top with cheese and return to oven.
Bake at 350F for about 25 minutes until the crust has turned golden brown and cheese is melted.
Cool to wire rack and cut immediately to serve.
This was a hit with the family!
It's easily adaptable to your taste and you can even add ground beef or turkey or just do all beans(which I'm going to try next time).
