Pop Up Taco Pie is a quick and easy dinner your family will love.
Pop up pies are one of those meals that I love because they use basic ingredients that I almost always have on hand. Not only that my family loves them. They are also easy enough that both my girls can make them for dinner if I need them to.
I will say though that pop up pies are not pretty. Delicious yes, pretty not so much. I have realized that some of my family’s favorites are not pretty, but that does not mean they are not worth sharing. This one is definitely worth sharing.
Yes, presentation is important, but taste is far more important. So, I gave up trying to get a really good picture of this and am sharing it anyway.
I am also sharing the gluten free version of pop up taco pie over in my allergy section today. And yes the pictures are the same on it. I only found one set of pictures for this and since both the gluten free version and the regular version look the same, I just shared the pictures I had instead of making it again and retaking pictures.
