my mother makes this amazing casserole called “taco pie”. now the name of it seems a little deceiving because there’s really nothing taco-y about it. nor is it a pie. regardless, it’s yummy. i even requested it for my birthday dinner, so you know it has to be good!
- 1 lb. ground meat (turkey or beef)
- 1/2 cup chopped onion
- 1 envelope taco seasoning
- 1 can green chilies
- 1 1/4 cup milk
- 3/4 cup Bisquick
- 3 eggs
- 2 tomatoes , sliced
- 1 cup shredded Monterrey jack cheese
- 1 can corn, drained
- 1 can black olive,drained, cut into thirds
Heat oven to 400 degrees. Grease pie plate. Cook and stir ground meat until brown. drain. Stir in seasoning mix. Spread into plate, top with chilies. Beat milk, baking mix and eggs until smooth; add corn and olives. Pour into plate. Bake 40-45 minutes or until a knife inserted comes clean. Take out of oven; top with sliced tomatoes and cheese. Bake for 8 – 10 minutes longer. Cool before serving. Serve with sour cream, hot sauce, chopped tomatoes, shredded lettuce and shredded cheese if desired.
taco pie is best when doubled. more fiesta to eat!
