Taco Pie/ Dorito Bread

This recipe was inspired by a recipe I used to make way back in my college years that was delicious but totally unhealthy.  It used refrigerated biscuits as the crust and ground beef with packaged taco seasoning and cheese.  This updated, healthy version was inspired by my co-author’s mom, Lin Hardick who invented an amazing “Dorito” Bread.  I thought it would be great to turn that into the crust for this updated taco pie.  It turned out amazing.  I will warn that it is very spicy.  If you don’t like it quite so spicy, you can tone it down by using regular chili powder instead of the chipolte pepper powder.

“Dorito” Bread/Taco Pie Crust

Get the recipe here from Lin’s Blog:  http://goodfood-lin.blogspot.com/2011/02/dorito-bread.html

Instead of making it into bread, simply press it into a pie plate as evenly as possible and bake until slightly browned (about 10-15 minutes).  Set it aside and make the taco pie filling.
