If I’ve said it once, I’ve said it a million times… I LOVE TACOS. So when I was trying to come up with something creative to “taco-fy”, I kept recreating a traditional taco (meat in a tortilla) with out of the box fillings. Until one day I decide to mess with the tortilla part instead of the filling, and this beauty of a taco pot pie was born.
One of the great things about this recipe is, it is totally customizable. If you want to make it with steak, ground beef, or beans go right ahead. You can make it spicier by adding more jalapenos or even a habanero. Or if you have family members who are okay with a little dairy, you can add a bit of cheese.
If you give this recipe a try, let me know how you made it your own and don’t forget to save a serving for tomorrow’s breakfast. #putaneggonit

Great recipe! Love the texture of the topping.
Would like to make this topping for a fruit cobbler. Should I just add some natural sweetener to the dough? If so, how much?
