Paleo Taco Egg Pie

You can use half of the meat mixture from the Paleo Taco Pie recipe and have 2 dinners from 1 recipe or prepare the meat recipe below:

1 to 1 1/2 pounds ground lean beef or turkey
1/2 yellow or white onion diced
1/2 yellow or orange bell pepper diced
1/2 cup Medium Salsa (if store bought we find On the Border to have the least ingredients) or you can use homemade
10 eggs (unless you are using meat that was previously prepared following the recipe for Paleo Taco Pie, then only use 8 eggs)
All of the spices can be adjusted to your preference:
1 Tbsp Chili Powder
1 tsp Cumin (this is a strong spice, so you can use less if you prefer)
1/2 tsp onion powder
1/2 tsp pepper
1/4 tsp garlic powder
Optional- Vegan Cheddar Cheese, 2% cheddar cheese
Cooking spray or oil

Preheat oven to 400
Spray a large skillet with cooking spray and brown meat with onion and peppers, drain and return to the skillet
Add all spices and salsa and simmer on medium for about 5 minutes
Spray a pie pan well with cooking spray or oil
In a large bowl mix the eggs and meat mixture well
Pour into a pie pan and bake for 25 minutes, check the center to see if it is fully set, if not cook additional 5-10 minutes and check center again
