So today I thought its cold and dreary outside and maybe my Sweetie would like a good lunch.
You see my husband and I have had lunch together for about 15 years now. Not many days have we missed. I know this is a rare occasion for many of us.

I went surfing and came across Pillsbury Cook-off recipe from the early 1970's. See that is my day.
Superspeedway Taco Pie. I have changed it a bit because it calls for Taco Seasoning. Well, there is something in those packets that make Dell so sick. So I changed it and think it is much better. I made it in a smaller portion so as not to have left overs. It all depends on your family. Adjust as needed.

Lay Corn chips onto of pie crust and smash them in a bit.
