Posted by Bacon:
Me and my pal Fozzie will be holding another Shopping Around the World scheduled for  Wednesday, May 25, 2016.  Do a posting on your blog linked back to mine.  That way we can keep track of all of the different prices and recipes.
This month we are opening the floor for you.  You can post ANYTHING (desserts, appetizers, snacks, entrees) that you want to share.  Just remember pictures and prices.  So what will you post my friends?  We can’t wait to see..

We are sharing a new favorite - Taco Pie!  Mom made this for the first time for Cinco de Mayo and she and Dad loved it!

  • 1 lb ground beef
  • 3 tbsp taco seasoning (or one packet taco seasoning)
  • 3/4 cup water
  • 6 large eggs
  • 1 cup heavy cream
  • 2 cloves garlic, minced
  • 1/2 tsp salt
  • 1/4 tsp pepper
  • 1 cup shredded Cheddar cheese 
  1. Preheat oven to 350F and grease a glass or ceramic 9-inch pie pan.
  2. Brown ground beef in a large skillet over medium heat until no longer pink, about 7 minutes, breaking up clumps with the back of a wooden spoon.
  3. Add taco seasoning and stir until combined, then add water, reduce heat to medium low and cook a few minutes longer until sauce is thickened.
  4. Spread beef in prepared pie pan.
  5. In a large bowl, combine eggs, cream, garlic, salt and pepper. Pour over beef.
  6. Sprinkle with shredded cheese and bake 30 minutes, or until centre is set and cheese is browned.
  7. Remove and let sit 5 minutes before slicing and serving.
  8. Top with sour cream, chopped tomatoes and chopped avocado, if desired.

Ground Beef - Sirloin $6.09/lb
Taco Seasoning - .99/package

Eggs - $1.75/dozen

Heavy Cream $3.55/pint

Shredded cheddar (Mom used Mexican)  $4.19/8 ounce package

We didn't include the garlic and salt and pepper since we always have them on hand. Mom serves this with salsa, avocado slices and sour cream - YUM!
