Baked Tacos Recipe

The family seemed to be in the mood for Mexican food again so I decided to put this Baked Tacos Recipe on the menu for dinner. This is not you typical taco recipe because the tacos are topped with cheese and placed in the oven. This does add to the time involved making the tacos a little bit, but it is something a little different and they are really good.

I cut this recipe in half-originally it was twice the size of the recipe in this recipe post. Just increase the amount of ingredients for the number you are serving. The next time you plan on having tacos for dinner give this on a try. Enjoy

Simple Taco Pie Recipe

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.

Ingredients

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 eggs

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)

Sour cream

Directions

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.

Serves 4
