Guest Recipe – Susan’s Taco Pie


Simple Cookery Taco Pie
Taco and Pie! What more can I say? Here's another great recipe from Susan.

Susan's Taco Pie
1 pound ground beef
1 Taco Seasoning packet
1 pkg (8-Inch) Flour Tortillas, 8-Count
1 can refried beans
1 jar salsa , mild
2 cups shredded, cheddar cheese
sour cream, lettuce, etc. for toppings
Pre-heat oven to 350 degrees. Brown ground beef - drain off excess fat. Add a packet of taco seasoning - prepare as per the package directions. Spray a pie pan with Pam - cover the pan with flour tortillas. Spread a can of refried beans (more or less according to your likes) over the tortillas. Mix about 1/2 jar of salsa with ground beef. Layer the beef mixture over refried beans. I prefer mild salsa- but this is to your taste also - then cover with shredded cheddar cheese. Cut a few of the tortillas into triangles and place on top - (or you can just place the entire tortilla on top.) Heat in a 350 degree oven - 30 minutes or until it is heated through and the tortillas are getting a little brown.
Susan says "You can serve with sour cream on a slice of the pie and salad on the side w/cheese and salsa - or place a slice of pie on a bed of lettuce with salsa drizzled over it and sour cream on top of the pie. Sorta like a taco salad."
