In my humble opinion, tacos are one of the most (if not the most) important food groups and they hold a very special place in my heart. So special, in fact, that if I were President for a day and got to pass one law, it’d be to make every Tuesday Taco Tuesday. Tacos for breakfast, lunch, and dinner. Even a midnight snack. Talk about making America great again, am I right?

Since I have yet to be elected President for a day to put this law into effect, I have fashioned the next best thing: The Taco Pie.

Finally, once you’ve finished smothering your dish in cheese, throw it into the oven to bake until that cheese turns a beautiful golden brown (about ten minutes).
