Taco Pie

I remember growing up my mom would make these by the dozen!  They're a great meal to make multiples at a time because they freeze really well and are a great meal to give to any family who may be in need of a hot meal! This dish is a unique take on a taco salad - a little more hardy though!

Ingredients Needed:  Yield 3, 9" Pies
  • 3 Frozen Deep Dish Pie Crusts
  • 1/2 lb. Lean Ground Beef - (Ground Turkey would be a great healthier option)
  • 1 lg. Yellow Onion
  • 3 Tbs. Taco Seasoning
  • 1 Can Tomato Sauce
  • 1 Can Tomato Paste
  • 2 Cups Corn Kernels
  • 1 Can Black Beans
  • Shredded Cheddar Cheese
  • 1 Cup Sour Cream
  • Corn Chips

How To:
  1. Preheat Oven to 375 degrees.  
  2. Brown your beef in a large fry pan, add the onion and seasoning. Saute until onion softens.  
  3. Add the Tomato Sauce and Paste, Kernels and Beans.  Mix together and set aside.
  4. Crunch up your corn chips and place in the bottom of each (uncooked) pie crust just to cover evenly. 
  5. Fill crusts then with the beef mixture.  
  6. Smother the top of meat with sour cream.
  7. Sprinkle with shredded cheese.
  8. Top with more crushed corn chips.
  9. Bake for approx. 15-20 min.  (Until lightly browned)
  10. Let stand for a few min. before serving.  Slice like you would a pie!

Garnish with any or all of the following:
Lettuce, Tomato, Avocado, Green Onion, Blk. Olives, Sour Cream, Salsa, Lime and Cilantro
