Low Carb Crust-less Taco Pie Recipe
Preheat your oven to 350 degrees.
Prepare a 9-inch pie pan by simply greasing it with butter or by spraying coconut oil on it.
Over medium heat, heat a skillet (a large one).
In case your beef has low fat or you don’t have a well-seasoned skillet, you better spray your pie pan with coconut oil, so that sticking can be avoided.
When the skillet heats up, add the ground beef, and break it into smaller pieces by using a spatula or spoon.
Stir occasionally, and cook until it turns brown.
Once browned, drain the beef and add in the taco seasoning.
Now cook it according to the instructions given on the package.
Then set it aside and continue with the next step
Combine the eggs and cream in a separate medium-sized bowl. Whisk it.
Add in it, salsa, green onions, salt and ¾ cups of cheese.
Combine the egg mixture with the previously prepared taco beef, and stir it.
Pour this mixture into the readied 9-inch pie pan.
On its top, sprinkle the remaining cheese.
In the preheated oven, bake it for 35 to 45 minutes or until the pie sets and its top turns brown.
Before serving, let it cool for 5 minutes.
Serve it with the taco seasoning of your choice.
