Paleo Cauliflower Taco Pie

Another not-so-pretty but oh-so-tasty recipe using cauliflower and coconut flour crust. I'm sure you could use almond flour too!

I put cheese on Billie's side!

Recipe copied from from Lemons N Lyme:

1 small head of cauliflower
1/4 cup coconut flour
2 eggs
1/4 cup coconut oil, melted (I had to add more in order to make a dough)
1/2 tsp salt
1/4 tsp ground black pepper

1 lbs. ground beef
1 onion, chopped up real good
1 green bell pepper, chopped
2 cloves garlic, chopped
1-2 tbs. olive oil
1 16-oz can chopped/crushed tomatoes
1 tbs. paprika
1 tsp. cumin
1/4 tsp. cayenne
1/2 tsp salt
1/2 tsp black pepper

Preheat oven to 400 F.
Chop up cauliflower and place into a food processor/blender with the rest of your crust ingredients. Food process that stuff real good. Grease a 9 in round baking dish, or use an extra large head of cauliflower and have to use the biggest pan you can possibly find in your cupboard like me. Take your “dough” and press it into your baking dish and up the sides. You don’t want it to be too thick (hmm.. about 1/4 inch) then poke the bottom with a fork a couple times. If you have extra dough, have no fear! Set it aside and I’ll tell you what to do later.
Bake for 15-20 minutes until starting to look cooked and every so slightly golden and delicious. Once done, take out and turn oven down to 375 F.

While your crust is cooking/cooling, let’s make your filling! So take your garlic and olive oil and heat over medium high heat in a skillet. Add your bell pepper. Cook for a few minutes before adding your onion. Add your onion and saute everything up real nice. Add your canned tomatoes. In a separate skillet, cook up your ground beef until just browned (insides should be not quite done). Mix EVERYTHING together in one skillet or large bowl and add all your spices in.

Pour mixture into your crust and spread evenly. If you had extra crust, you can crumble it on top. Place into oven for 15-20 minutes, until meat is cooked and crust is golden brown on edges.

Let it cool for a bit then top with guacamole, hot sauce, or whatever other toppings your desire! 

 * I used a pie dish and had way too much to fit in there! Next time, I will use a 9x13 casserole dish.*

Mine didn't stay in cut pie form, but we didn't mind. It was so delicious!
