1-1/2 lbs ground beef (could use Italian sausage for more flavor)
1 pkg taco seasoning
1/2 cup water
1 can (2-1/4 ounces) sliced ripe olives, drained
2 cups corn chips, crushed, divided
1 unbaked pastry shell (9 inches)
1 cup (8 ounces) sour cream
1 cup (8 ounces) shredded cheddar cheese
Top with shredded lettuce and sliced avocado if preferred.
In a large skillet, brown beef until no longer pink; drain. Stir in the taco seasoning, water and olives. Simmer, uncovered, for 5 minutes, stirring frequently. Sprinkle half of the corn chips into pie shell. Top with meat mixture, sour cream and cheese. Cover with remaining corn chips. Bake at 375 for 20-25 minutes or until crust is golden brown. Cut into wedges. Top with lettuce and avocado if desired.
