This is a really good way of having tacos, just as a meat pie. It's basically a loaded taco casserole.

It's great served over a bed of shredded lettuce and served with a side dish of Mexican Rice and a bit of fresh homemade guacamole, pico de gallo or your favorite salsa on the side.

How to Make Easy Baked Taco Pie

Step-by-Step

  1. Heat oven to 375°F. Lightly coat a 2-quart round baking dish with no-stick spray; set aside.
  2. Brown beef with the onion and chili powder in a large skillet over medium-high heat. Add the tomatoes, corn and black beans (if using); cook 5 min or until heated through, stirring occasionally.
  3. Spoon 1 cup meat mixture into the casserole/baking dish. Layer 3 tortillas over the beef layer, overlapping tortillas if necessary to fit in baking dish. Top with 2 cups of the remaining meat mixture and half of the cheese. Cover with remaining tortillas and remaining beef mixture; cover dish with lid or foil.
  4. Bake for 25 to 30 min or until heated through. Top with remaining cheese, and bake, uncovered, for 5 minutes or until the cheese begins to melt.
  5. Cut into 4 wedges, and serve immediately, garnishing each serving with a dollop of sour cream with sliced green onions and/or chopped cilantro sprinkled on top.
