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!

How to Make Taco Pie Casserole

Step-by-Step

  1. Preheat oven to 400 degrees F.
  2. Brown ground turkey (or ground beef) over medium-high heat. Drain off any fat from pan. Set aside.*

  5. Cut torillas into four strips length wise. Then cut strips into 1-inch pieces.

  7. Spray 13-x-9 inch casserole dish with non-stick cooking spray. Spoon mixture evenly into casserole dish. Cover tightly with foil.**
  8. Bake 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.
