Taco Pie Casserole

Cheryl Mills


This recipe is a family favorite which I have been making for many years now. Each time I make it, I try a different variation with the ingedients. The version posted here is one that was made recently for dinner which included teenagers--frequently, a hard group to please. This recipe is "Friend and Family ...& Teenager" approved. Enjoy!

1Preheat oven to 400 degrees F.

5Cut torillas into four strips length wise. Then cut strips into 1-inch pieces.
6Mix in torilla pieces into soup mix.
7Spray 13-x-9 inch casserole dish with non-stick cooking spray. Spoon mixture evenly into casserole dish. Cover tightly with foil.**
8Bake at 400 degrees F for 40 - 50 minutes or until hot throughout (180 degrees F). Remove from oven and uncover. Sprinkle removing cheese on top. Return to oven for 5 minutes or until cheese is melted. Let set up for 10 minutes before serving with sour cream.
9*Let cool slightly to prevent cheese from melting when adding to mixture.
**To prevent tortillas from sticking to the foil, spray with non-stick cooking spray before covering tightly.
10Tips: Great weekday dinner when served with a nice green salad. This recipe can also be made ahead of time and stored overnight. Just make sure to pull it from refrigerator about 15 minutes before placing into 400 degree F oven.
