Taco Biscuit Pie

The day after we evacuated from the fire, I realized I had left all my recipes behind.  I knew that I could find some of them online, others were family recipes I could get from my mom.  Others would  suffer the same fate as our house.  Fortunately, we had a happy ending.

This particular recipe came from a Pillsbury Family Fun Cookbook published in 1983 and until very recently, I could not find it online.  So I’m sharing it now so that I can always find…and you can try it, too! This is one of my children’s absolute favorites.  Enjoy…
