  • 3 tablespoons canola oil
  • 3 cups shredded peeled potatoes, well drained
  • 1 cup shredded part-skim mozzarella cheese
  • 3/4 cup cooked taco meat
  • 1/4 cup chopped onion

  • 5 large eggs
  • 1/2 teaspoon salt
  • 1/8 teaspoon pepper


  1. Combine oil and potatoes in a 10-in. pie plate. Press mixture down evenly to form a crust. Bake at 425° until lightly browned, about 10 minutes.
  2. Layer with the mozzarella, taco meat and onion. Whisk together the cream, eggs, salt and pepper; pour over beef mixture. Bake until a knife inserted in center comes out clean, about 30 minutes.
