Taco Pie



I got this recipe from my cousin’s second grade cookbook.  You know it has to be a family hit if the second grader chose it for the class cookbook.


This taco pie is good with no garnishments but we like to add guacamole and crushed Doritos chips

Taco Pie

2 pkgs crescent rolls

8 oz cream cheese, softened

8 oz sour cream

1 Tbsp taco seasoning

1 lb ground beef

1 pkg taco seasoning

3/4 cup water

1 can sliced olives

1 tomato, diced

2 cups chopped lettuce

2 cups shredded Monterey Jack cheese


crushed Doritos

1. Preheat oven to 375.  Over lap the crescent dough in a 9X13 greased pan.  Bake 11-13  minutes until golden brown.  Let cool.

2. Whip together sour cream, cream cheese, and 1 Tbsp taco seasoning.  Spread on cooled crescent crust and refrigerate 30 minutes.

3. Brown beef until no longer pink and add taco seasoning and water.  Cook until water cooks down.

4. Layer cheese, beef, lettuce, olives, tomatoes on top of the cream cheese crust.

5. Slice and serve. Garnish with guacamole and crushed Doritos.
