Craving a taco pie since going paleo? All that flakey crust, ground beef, spices, sour cream and tons of cheese? Well…
…you can’t exactly have that anymore!
But hold on…this paleo recipe lets you whip up the next best thing: a clean taco pie bursting with south of the border seasonings, hearty meat, a crumbly crust, and fresh veggies.
It’s everything you love about a traditional taco pie – minus the dairy and gluten binders.
Ready to try this one? Oh I bet you are! Let me tell you about it…
The crust is made from almond meal, with a sprinkling of taco spices baked into the crust to give it a little extra flavor kick.
And just so you know, this taco pie paleo recipe won’t hold together quite as well as the ones you’re used to. Those keep their shape better thanks to all the cheese and wheat glues – the stuff you need to avoid if you’re paleo.
But so what? Eating paleo isn’t always pretty. And besides, the awesome layers of flavors you’ll be scooping up with every bite will more than make up for the somewhat wobbly structure of this taco dish.
And here’s a surprise…when we grabbed some pie crust from the bottom of the plate, it tasted like we’d added tortilla chips! How that happened, I don’t have a clue…but I like it!
And just in case you’re thinking this taco pie crust is gonna turn out all mushy, think again.
The secret is pre-baking the crust a little bit to create a good, solid shell before you add the taco filling. You’ll see how in the recipe below.
And I can’t rave enough about the flavors from the spices and meat you’ll get from this recipe – so, so good!
You can make this taco pie paleo recipe as either a full-blown pie, or do the mini version in individual ramekins so everyone can dig into their own personal pie.
Either way, this easy-as-pie recipe is delish! It definitely satisfied my taco craving.
We’ll be making this one a staple around our house! Don’t miss out…give this one a try!
