Notes

  1. I used 90% ground beef in this recipe. You can substitute ground turkey, ground chicken, or ground pork for the ground beef.
  2. I like to use my Homemade Taco Seasoning. You could also use store-bought, but will need one and a half packages.
  3. If you're using a shallow pie plate, consider reducing the amount of milk to ¾ cup. Otherwise, you may not be able to use all of the custard.
  4. I used extra sharp cheddar cheese that I shredded myself. You could also use pre-shredded cheese in this recipe. In this recipe, you could also substitute Monterey Jack, Colby Jack, Pepper Jack, or Colby cheese for the cheddar cheese.
  5. Depending on the depth of your pie plate, you may not be able to use all of the custard without the mixture overfilling the pie plate.
  6. Other garnishes include salsa, guacamole, sliced olives, green onions, jalapeños, and crushed corn chips.
  7. Leftovers if any can be reheated in the microwave.
