Mexican Taco Pie

31 January 2009 2 comments


My family loves Mexican food. I always make beef Tacos, Enchiladas, Carne Asada and Chimichangas. I wanted to make something new so I tried this recipe. I made a couple of modifications to suit my family's taste. You can make this sans refried beans. If you like salsa, then by all means, add it as another layer.

Mexican Taco Pie
1 lb. lean ground beef
1 medium onion, chopped
1 can Refried Beans
1 4 oz. can chopped green chilies
1 pkg. taco seasoning 1 pkg. flour tortillas
2 c. shredded shredded Mexican mixed cheese
1. Grease a pie pan with oil. Pre-heat the oven to 350 deg F.
2. Saute onions in a little oil. Add ground beef and a pinch of salt and pepper. Cook until brown. Strain the cooked ground beef to take out excess oil.
3. Return to heated pan. Prepare the taco seasoning according to the directions on the packet. Add to the cooked ground beef. Simmer for 5 minutes. Set aside. 4. Place two pieces of tortillas on the bottom of the pan. Spread some refried beans evenly on the tortillas. Follow with the ground beef. Sprinkle some green chilies on top, then the Mexican shredded cheese.
5. Place two more pieces of tortillas on top and repeat with the refried beans, ground beef, green chilies, cheese. Do this until you reach the top of the pie pan. 6. Sprinkle some extra cheese on the top to get a crunchy topping or you can place one layer of tortilla then the cheese if you want an extra crunchy top.
7. Bake for about 30 minutes when everything is all bubbly and crunchy.
8. Let cool for 5 minutes and slice. Serve hot.

    i think it's a wrong decision to check food websites at 4AM (Manila time). i'm now famished!!! i wonder if i'll eventually learn how to cook. it's just that we're so pampered here in the Philippines that learning to cook never became a priority.

    but i'm still hoping i'll learn how to. hopefully, with the help of blogs like yours. hehehe!

    Go Pinoy!!!
