Friday Friend Recipe #90--Deep Dish Taco Pie

Friday Friend Recipe #90 -- Deep Dish Taco Pie
Making my way thru my Friday Friend Cookbook, one recipe at a time.
What is the Friday Friend cookbook: I have about 50 of my closest friends and family on an e-mail forum which I called the Friday Friends (from all over the county). At first, most of them didn't know each other, (they knew me) but over the past 15 years, we've answered and shared silly--and serious---questions, exchanged Secret Santa Christmas gifts, had a dieting contest in which we paid a $1 a week and that money went to a scholarship fund for a Friday Friends son's memorial scholarship, and we went on a great vacation for my 52 birthday.
AND, we contributed recipes for a cookbook.
I was looking at the cookbook the other night and I said, "I should make every recipe in here for my blog."
The Handyman--who knows me better than I know myself (this happened to be a question on the Friday Friend forum once---does your spouse/partner know you better than you know yourself?)--said,  "you'll never, EVER do that."

WELL---maybe I'll show him!  Maybe I will.
Which brings me to this... recipe #90
Deep Dish Taco Pie

On my Sunday Post, I said that coming up this week were a couple Friday Friend Cookbook Recipes, and here it is Friday and I haven't posted one yet.
So here goes.....
As you know, my friend Barb, typed up the recipes for this cook, while I bugged the hell out of everyone to send them in.  (it was a perfect partnership),  Barb has a lot of her own recipes in this cookbook.
Now, just let me say, I am a literal cook.  I do exactly what the recipe says.  I just do.
Barb, on the other hand, must not be.  She must be on who puts a little of this and a little of that into her recipes.  
 Previously she said  about another of her recipes that I had  made and posted,  "geez, put a little seasoning on it".
But...she didn't write any seasoning on the recipe, so how was I to know?
As she didn't for this one either, so I didn't add any.
I am literal AND anal I guess.
But anyway----this is just a good meat pie!  Put all the seasoning you want.
Or don't.

Deep Dish Taco Pie
By Barbara Brown of
Buckeye, AZ
1/2 lb. ground beef
1/2 cup sour cream
1/2 cup mayo
1/2 cup shredded sharp cheddar
1 T. chopped onion
1 cup Bisquick
1/4 cup cold water
1-2 med. tomatoes, thinly sliced
1/2 cup chopped green pepper
Heat oven to 375. Grease 8x8 baking dish.
Brown ground beef.  Mix sour cream, mayo, cheese, and onion; reserve.
Mix Bisquick and water till soft dough forms. Pat into pan, pressing 1/2 inch up sides. Layer beef, tomatoes, and green pepper in pan.
Spoon sour cream mixture over top.   Sprinkle with paprika.  Bake till edges of dough are light brown. Approx. 25 to 30 minutes.

Now, for my Barb story.
Her husband Doug once wrote her a song. and sang it to her over the phone.
(they had a long distance relationship)
She thought it romantic then, but now if he did it?  I know she would laugh.
Why do we lose that sense of romance?
Years later, instead of writing her a love song, he just gets her drunk.
As shown here in her answers from the Friday Friend notebook of 2007 (see #5.):
OH MAN---when I first read it I though it said that Doug was making them drink to relax. But it really says he was making them A drink.
I like it better when Doug forces her to drink.
(you know he really doesn't, right?  Not that I know of anyway)
And then... Barb with Jake the Alligator Man. 
I feel she's always had an obsession with Jake the Alligator Man.
She's mentioned him on more than one occasion.
AND she goes to Long Beach, WA a couple times a year and stays for a month or so.  Why?   To see Jake?
That's my Barb story and recipe number NINETY!!

I thought everyone's husband made them drink to relax. lol I would definitely add taco seasoning to that recipe.

Whenever we got out and eat, I make sure to order a cocktail for myself. Over break I had two mojitos and boy were they good. The husband was drivin' so I definitely took advantage of that. The taco dish looks good.
