How To Make taco pie

  • 1
    Preheat oven to 350 degrees. Place ground beef and chopped onion in a large pot or pan and cook thoroughly. Drain, return to pot or pan, and set aside.
  • 2
    While cooking beef, tear crescent rolls at perforations and lightly push into a 13 X 9" baking pan. Be sure to include sides of pan about 2 inches. You will have some leftover crescent rolls (I bake them separately).
  • 3
    While in the bag, use hands to crush Dorito chips. Place 1/2 bag of crushed Dorito chips over crescent rolls.
  • 4
    Stir in taco seasoning mixes and 1/2-3/4 jar of salsa (depending on the amount of beef)to cooked ground beef. Spoon out all of ground beef mixture and spread over crushed Doritos.
  • 5
    Spoon out one container of sour cream and spread over beef mixture.
  • 6
    Place the remaining 1/2 bag of crushed Doritos over the sour cream.
  • 7
    Bake in oven at 350 degrees for approximately 25-30 minutes. Expect Doritos to darken slightly but do not burn them.
  • 8
    Let Taco Pie cool for about 10 minutes. Using a knife, cut pie into serving size squares. Place each square on a dinner sized plate.
  • 9
    Add your toppings: Lettuce, tomatoes, more salsa and sour cream if desired, black olives (optional) and top with cheese.
