I have seen these Taco Pie recipes around the internet quite often lately. I don’t use baking mix very often but this Simple Taco Pie Recipe looked like it would be quick to put together so I decided to give it a try. This is a very simple recipe that doesn’t require much prep time. I was very surprised with the finished product because this turned out to be another simple and good recipe. When I mixed the baking mix together it was real thin and I had some concern about that; but that is the way it should be. I guess I was thinking that the batter would go on top to form a crust, but the way it turns out it is distributed throughout the dish. There is not a lot of hot seasoning in the pie itself but it is easy to control that by using hot salsa if you like a lot of heat in your Tacos.
If you like Tacos and want to try something a little different, give this Simple Taco Pie Recipe a try. It’s really good.
1 pound lean ground beef
1 medium onion (chopped)
1 package taco seasoning mix
1 can chopped green chilies, drained (4.5 ounces)
1 cup milk
2 tomatoes (seeded and diced)
1 can black sliced olives (2.25 ounces)
1/2 cup Bisquick Original mix
3/4 cup shredded Monterey Jack or Cheddar cheese (3 ounces) (I mixed the 2)
Salsa (hot or mild to taste)
Preheat oven to 400F.
1. In a large skillet brown the burger and onion until burger is no longer pink inside. Drain if needed and mix in the taco seasoning.
2. Spray a 9 inch pie plate with cooking spray and spread the burger mixture over the bottom. Distribute the green chilies on top.
3. Mix together the baking mix, eggs, and milk to form the batter. (Electric mixer worked best for this), pour the batter into the pie plate.
4. Bake for 25 minutes or until a knife inserted comes out clean. Remove from the oven and top with the olives and cheese. Bake for an additional 5 to 10 minutes, or until cheese is melted.
Let the pie cool slightly then garnish with the diced tomatoes. Serve with sour cream and salsa.
