Memo: Famous French chefs are known historically for the ability to take economical base meat cuts and through unique preparations create something of great taste and value. Such is this wonderful Taco Pie recipe. With grass fed Texas Longhorn beef, which has more omega 3 than most Salmon, and add some vegetables on top -- kazaam, you have it! It is better with a Texas Longhorn beef inside. DD
1/4 cup butter
2/3 cup milk
1 package Taco Bell seasoning mix
2 1/2 cups mashed potato flakes (you could also use left over mashed potatoes and omit the butter and milk)
1 pound grass fed, lean, ground beef
1/2 cup chopped onion
1/2 cup salsa
1 cup shredded lettuce
1 medium tomato, chopped
1 cup sharp cheddar cheese, shredded
