Easy Taco Pie is as family-friendly as recipes come — always welcome for dinner tonight or lunch again the next day, and then again a week later. Dress it up with salsa, serve it as is, adorn with sliced avocados…whatever you fancy.
I’m excited to share this recipe for Easy Taco Pie with you today, and the cookbook it came from, because they have become important to me and my family.
I’ve made the Easy Taco Pie at least 15-20 times already since I got the book in 2018, and it shows no sign of fatigue. I think it’s officially in the permanent rotation. Meaty, cheesy, with just enough spice and satisfying as all get-out, it just solves all the dinner problems. It also cuts like a dream, and doesn’t need a crust to hold it together.
I knew it would be right up my alley when I read what the author, Carolyn Ketchum, had to say about it.
“I love creating new recipes so much that I rarely make the same thing twice. So when I tell you that I’ve made this pie more times than I can count, that’s saying A LOT. This is one of my easy go-to family pleasers.”
Amen to every word of that.
Shall we make it? Hungry mouths are lining up at the table.
Dorothy’s variation of Taco Pie with spinach
Simply add a few handfuls of spinach leaves to the meat mixture at the end of its cooking time. Stir and cook for another minute or so to allow greens to wilt. Then turn the mixture into the prepared pie dish and proceed with recipe.

Easy Taco Pie is from a new cookbook, “The Everyday Ketogenic Kitchen ,” by Carolyn Ketchum. The subhead: “150+ Inspirational Low-Carb, High-Fat Recipes to Maximize Your Health,” tells the next part of the story.
Carolyn adopted the low-carb, high-fat (LCHF) ketogenic eating plan as a result of getting diabetes during one of her pregnancies, and has kept at it to help manage her condition. Others follow a keto diet for weight management, other health issues, or because it makes them feel better.
The low-carb life can be challenging, especially when the bread cravings hit. These recipes show you that the low-carb, high-fat diet doesn’t have to be boring. You’ll cook out of this book even if you aren’t following that diet…that’s how good her recipes are. Cheesy Spinach Cauliflower Waffles, Roasted Cabbage Wedges with Blue Cheese and Bacon, Brie and Caramelized Onion Stuffed Mushrooms…are you hungry yet?
Carolyn uses fresh, whole-food ingredients and her recipes are free of grains, gluten, and sugar. She’s your friendly guide on the low-carb path, showing you that yes, a delicious dinner awaits, followed by a sweet treat. She’s the low-carb baking queen — check out her cheesecake, brownies, haystack cookies….mmmm.
You definitely want this book, and it will soon be dog-eared from use. That’s the mark of a good cookbook. As I embrace a lower-carb life for weight management, this has become one of my favorite, practical, everyday cookbooks.
