Taco Pie


A couple weeks ago I was invited to a Celebrating Home catalog party by my new neighbor.  I had a bunch of fun, and learned a couple new recipes.  One of the recipes that I learned was something that my husband has named “Taco Pie”.  It is a croissant shell with layers of taco meat, refried beans, and lots of cheese.  It is SUPER quick and easy to make, and my family loves it!

Taco Pie

1lb Hamburger

1 can Refried Beans

8oz bag Shredded Cheese of your choice

Packet of Taco Seasoning

Two 8oz tubes of Croissant Dough

Brown hamburger and season to taste.  Add taco seasoning and cook according to package directions.

In a bread pan, line the croissant pieces around the edge of the pan.  The wide end goes down inside the pan, about an inch or so into the bottom of the pan.  Drape the pointed ends of the dough over the edge of the pan for later.  You need quite a few, I usually use 12.  They will overlap. Save the remaining dough for later.

Put the taco meat into the bottom of the pan inside the croissant dough.

Next layer with a can of refried beans.

On top, put the entire package of cheese.

Lay the tops of the croissant pieces across the cheese, making a braid pattern.  If you have any bare spots, use the remaining croissant dough to patch them.

Cook at 350 degrees for 25-30 minutes.  (I cook mine for 30 min and it turns out golden brown and delicious!!)

Let cool for 10-15 minutes.  Cut into pieces.  Enjoy!!

My family likes to eat this with sour cream and taco sauce on top.  At the party it was served plain, and that was good too!
