1 lb. ground beef (90 percent)
1 onion, chopped
2 cups potato flakes
1/2 cup milk
1/4 stick unsalted butter
1 cup salsa
1 pkg taco seasoning
Cheddar cheese


In a medium-sized saute pan over medium heat, brown the meat with onion. Once cooked, drain and add in the taco seasoning and salsa. Simmer until all liquid is gone. Remove from heat.

In small stock pot, bring the milk and butter to a simmer. Add in the potato flakes. Season with salt and pepper.

Press the mashed potatoes into a pie pan creating a "crust" for the taco pie. Top the crust with cooked meat mixture and place into the hot oven. Bake for 25 minutes. Remove from heat. Allow to cool 5-10 minutes. Spread sour cream over the top, add lettuce, cheese and cilantro. Slice and eat!
