Taco Chicken Pie Recipe With Avocado Side Salad

Taco Chicken Pie Recipe With Avocado Side Salad {An eMeals Recipe}

Easy Taco Pie Recipe

If you are anything like me, if you do not have a meal plan that has tasty recipes laid out for you, you may find yourself turning to fast food restaurants for dinner…which in my house is a big no no. However, on those days that we are looking to have a treat, we still have some easy recipes that are a departure from our usual gluten-free, vegetarian, vegan meals. We are not strict vegetarians but prefer to eat mostly vegetarian meals. We eat mostly gluten-free as our youngest son has a very high allergy to wheat. The combination of these two things can make meal planning difficult if not fully prepared.

The fabulous company eMeals has been a God-send for my husband and I. We have been able to save a lot of time and money while still eating our vegetarian meals. You can see my full review of it here.

I want to share with you a departure from our usual – a very tasty eMeals recipe that we see as a treat: Taco Chicken Pie! This recipe is so delicious and never disappoints. I also want to mention that sometimes when we make this, we’ll opt to put a pie crust on top as well, sealing it in more like a chicken pot pie. But we’ve made it both ways, with and without and either way it’s delicious!
