Easy Dinner Recipe: Gluten-Free Taco Pie

August 6, 2014

Gluten-free taco pie is a quick and easy dinner that's perfect for busy weeknights.  Every cook, even the gluten-free ones, needs a little help from their pantry.  Sometimes this is in the form of frozen vegetables, canned beans, and gluten-free baking mixes.  In this recipe, ground beef (you can also use turkey) is cooked with green chilies and a taco seasoning before it's layered on top of gluten-free dough and topped with cheddar cheese.  Serve this taco pie with your favorite toppings including salsa, shredded lettuce, tomato and guacamole.
