Taco Pie Recipe - (Mexican Food)


1 unbaked 9-inch pastry shell
1 pound lean ground beef
1/2 cup onion (chopped)
1 tablespoon beef bouillon granules (or 3 beef bouillon cubes)
1 can refried beans (16 ounces)
1 can green chilies (4 ounces, chopped and drained)
1/4 cup tomato sauce
Sour cream
Shredded Cheddar or Monterey Jack cheese
Shredded lettuce
Chopped tomato


Preheat the oven to 425 degrees. Bake pastry shell for 8 minutes. Remove the shell from the oven and set it aside. Reduce the heat to 375 degrees. In a large skillet, brown the meat with the onion and bouillon. Stir the mixture until the bouillon dissolves. Remove the skillet from heat and stir in the beans, chilies, and tomato sauce. Pour the skillet contents into the pastry shell. Bake for 20-25 minutes or until it is bubbly around the edges. Let it stand for 10 minutes. Garnish with cheese, lettuce, tomato, and sour cream.

Thoughts On Taco Pie:

I love Mexican food and if you are craving a great Mexican flavor dish, this recipe will do it for you. I am also a huge fan of tacos. You may have noticed that taco seasoning is not included here but if you want more of a taco flavor you can add it. It would be good to try both variations and let me know what you like best.

More Information About Taco Pie:

Taco Pie was first noticed in the recipe world in the 1970s. Most everyone who tries this tasty Mexican-themed dish loves it. You can use ground turkey instead of ground beef if you like. If you trade ground beef for ground turkey, I suggest adding 1 packet of taco seasoning to the meat while cooking to give it a better flavor. You can visit the Kevin Is Cooking blog to see great photos of his Perfect Taco Pie recipe.

Some Questions For You:

Have you tried making Taco Pie before? Have you tasted Taco Pie? Please share your thoughts with me about this food. I would love to know what you think about it. Did you see my last recipe? If you missed it, it is called Chinese Cabbage Slaw Recipe and it is a shift from Mexican food to Asian food but if you like Asian food, you will love the recipe.

My Thoughts For Today:

Dollar General Store Coffee Maker

At my house, we run the coffee maker every day. When I was growing up coffee was always brewing at my grandparent's house. When visitors came they were always offered coffee to drink. I took the tradition of brewing coffee just about every day as an adult. I have been considering purchasing a water softener for my home. It would probably be a good idea.

The water in this area is full of lime and very hard water. I should use distilled water for making coffee but we just use our city tap water. The city tap water here is treated to a minimum. We always keep vinegar in the house and if I run a little vinegar through the coffee pot regularly the coffee pop lasts for a good length of time. Sometimes I forget and the coffee pot heating element clogs with lime. The lime makes the coffee pot brew very slow. I have owned a Bunn coffee maker in the past and it lasted a long time because the water stays heated in the water chamber.

So here's what I do. I just buy a cheap 20-dollar coffee maker from the Dollar general store and when it goes bad I just throw it out. I really need good coffee maker tips and suggestions about getting a good coffee maker. Can you help me?

Keep on cooking!
