Taco Pie

I really think you’ll like this pie, especially if you’re a fan of Mexican casseroles and Taco Salads (that’s what I feel this recipe is a combination of). It’s delicious!

All the flavors of taco salad in pie form! We love that this simple dinner idea is flavorful and kid-friendly. For more easy dinner ideas, check out our chicken tacos and taco casserole.

Quick and Easy Dinner

I’m obsessed with EASY dinner ideas! Since it’s something that needs to be made every day we are always looking for quick and simple recipes.

The recipe I’m sharing today happens to be another one of those. It’s for a Taco Pie that is made in under an hour. It has all the delicious flavors of taco salad in pie form and it’s a hit with the family.

With hamburger, green chiles, bisquick, cheese and toppings it’s so flavorful! It reminds us of taco salad in pie form, which means even picky kids like it!

How to Make Taco Pie + Topping ideas

This recipe is very similar to a quiche. It can also be modified to include any ingredients you love or don’t care for (try shredded chicken – it’s delish).

BEEF. For this version, you begin by cooking up a pound of ground beef until it is browned. Add the taco seasoning and mix until covered.

CHILES. Spoon this mixture into a greased pie pan and top with chiles.

BISQUICK & BAKE. Make Bisquick mix by stirring together milk, eggs and Bisquick and pouring over the meat and chiles. Bake for about 30 minutes.

TOPPINGS. Top with cheese and bake an additional 10 minutes, before letting it set and adding toppings. Some of our favorite things to add on top include:

  • salsa
  • sour Cream
  • tomatoes & shredded lettuce
  • more cheese
  • chopped cilantro
  • olives

Variations + Storing

Can you make this in a pie shell like a traditional quiche? Yes, simply pour the beef into a plain pie shell and continue the recipe as follows.

What is a good option in place of Mexican cheese? We like to switch up which cheese we use with recipes. If Mexican-blend is not your favorite you can use cheddar cheese, colby jack, or even mozzarella.

Can you make this recipe gluten-free? Yes! There is a gluten free Bisquick mix that you can use for the biscuit layer.

How to store leftovers? Keep in the fridge in an airtight tupperware container for about a week. Also you can use taco night leftovers for this recipe.
