What's Cooking Wednesday: Taco Pie

Posted by [email protected] on July 31, 2013 at 7:00 AM


It's What's Cooking Wednesday and today I have a wonderful south of the border recipe.

My absolute favorite cuisine is Mexican, so there's a good chance you'll see a lot of Mexican dishes on What's Cooking Wednesday's. And I must admit I do find many of my recipes on Pinterest. But, here's one I think you'll love.







1/4 cup butter

2/3 cup milk

1 package Taco Bell seasoning mix

2 1/2 cups mashed potato flakes (you could also use left over mashed potatoes and omit the butter and milk)

1 pound ground beef

1/2 cup chopped onion

1/2 cup salsa

1 cup shredded lettuce

1 medium tomato, chopped

1 cup sharp cheddar cheese, shredded

Sour cream, optional




Preheat oven to 350 degrees. In a medium sauce pan, melt butter. Add milk and 2 tablespoon taco seasoning.

Remove from heat and add potato flakes until incorporated. Press mixture into the bottom of a 10-inch pan. Bake for 7-10 minutes until it just BARELY turns golden brown.


In a medium skillet, cook beef and onions until beef is browned and cooked through. Drain. Add Salsa and remaining taco seasoning. Cook until bubbly. Pour into crust. Bake for 15 minutes, or until crust is golden brown. Let cool for 5 minutes.


Top with cheese, lettuce, and tomatoes. Cut and serve with sour cream.


Let me know if you liked it!
