Taco Pie

This recipe comes straight from my mom. We ate this a lot growing up! It was so easy, she could put it together earlier in the day and throw it in the oven to reheat it! Because we ate it growing up it's one of my favorite comfort foods.

1 Package of Crescent Rolls
1 pound of Lean Ground Beef or Ground Turkey
1 oz of Taco Seasoning
1 Cup of Mexican Blend Cheese

Grease a 8x8 pyrex or round pyrex dish. Preheat oven as directed on the Crescent Rolls. Make a pie crust style bottom in the pyrex out of the crescent rolls and bake in the oven until done. While baking the crust brown the meat with the taco seasoning. When the crust is done add the meat on top and top with cheese. Put back in the oven until the cheese is melted. Top with Salsa, Sour Cream, Gauc, Lettuce, Tomato, Avocado...whatever you like.

This recipe was linked to an Ingredient Spotlight on the Eat at Home blog.


  1. This is like the taco rolls, but it looks easier to assemble. I'm going to have to try it!

  2. Do you add the seasoning straight to the hamburger or prepare it like you would for tacos (by adding the water)? Made this tonight and used some of the grease (aaacck! lol)for the beef, but it could have been a tad moister. Still yummy though!

    1. I always add the taco seasoning and then drain the grease off. It never seems dry to me but maybe because I grew up eating this recipe prepared that way...?
