How to Store Taco Pie

You can store your Taco Pie in an airtight container for up to 3 days. To reheat, bake, uncovered, at 350°F for 10 to 15 minutes or until hot.

History of the Taco Pie

The Taco was invented by the indigenous peoples of Mexico around 9000 BCE. However, the exact origin of the taco pie is not completely clear but it was probably created somewhere in Texas.
