Taco Pie

I have made this recipe for a few guests and friends and everyone asks me “what’s the recipe?”.  So here it is….


5 to 6 whole wheat tortillas (soft, about 10 inches in diameter)

1 1/2 pounds of ground beef or turkey

2 cups of shredded cheddar cheese

1 14 oz. can of enchilada sauce or tomato sauce* (divided)

1 envelope of Taco seasoning, low-sodium


1.  Preheat oven to 375 degrees

2.  Cook beef or turkey in a saute pan until cooked through.  Drain liquid.   Add taco seasoning and HALF of the enchilada or tomato sauce.  Cook until heated. Set aside.

3.  Use cooking spray and spray a 9 inch pie dish.  Place one tortilla on the bottom.  Top with about 1/5 of the meat and spread over tortilla.  Sprinkle 1/5 of the cheese.  Top with another tortilla and repeat layers 5 times.  Top with a tortilla and drizzle the remaining sauce over the entire pie.  Top with remaining cheese.

4.  Bake uncovered for 25-30 minutes.  Let cool about 5 minutes and slice & serve!  Sour cream compliments well.  Add some salad, watermelon and cornbread to complete the meal.

* Enchilada sauce will give it a little more punch, but if you don’t have any on hand, tomato sauce will do.

Total meal takes no more than 45 minutes to cook and is easy to prep!
