WW Recipe of the Day: Impossibly Easy Turkey Taco Pie
(272 calories | 5 5 5 myWW *SmartPoints value per serving)
Dinner doesn't get much simpler, or fun, than this Impossibly Easy Bisquick Turkey Taco Pie.
As the pie bakes, the baking mixture sinks to the bottom forming a nice, light crust holding the yummy taco-spiced turkey and green chile filling. Topped with a little melted cheese, what's not to like?
And it's family-friendly too because once the pie is made, you can serve it with all the traditional taco fillings, letting everyone top it how they like. If you like more traditional taco flavors, you can use shredded lettuce and salsa. Or take it in a nacho direction by topping yours with jalapeño slices, guacamole and/or sour cream.
If you're a Weight Watcher, don't forget to add any extra points for your optional toppings.
