Mexican food is a favorite of ours and this taco pie casserole is right up there in the delicious category. This is a quick tasty meal that the whole family will love that won’t take forever to make. It’s loaded with delicious ground beef, refried beans, lots of cheese and a few more ingredients and then baked. When served, it’s great topped with shredded lettuce, diced tomatoes, green onions and sour cream, just to name a few.
Casseroles are great mainly because they are pretty simple to make, and in this case, no rolling of tortillas, just layer the ingredients and pop it in the oven.
When you are ready to serve this taco pie casserole, top with any topping you’d like. I used lettuce, tomatoes, green onions and cilantro. Sour cream is excellent to add as well. I didn’t have any at the time otherwise I can guarantee I would’ve added some. So yummy!
Taco pie casserole makes great leftovers too, if there’s any left. The recipe makes a pretty good amount so I’m sure there will be leftovers to enjoy for lunch the next day.
