Pie Anyone?


Well, Justin is still working late into the night from the storm that hit Wednesday and the kids and I went to the grocery store yesterday and picked up some groceries and I decided to make a Taco Pie.  Yes, that's right...Taco Pie...that's how it really looks!

The recipe:

1. I preheat my oven at 375 degrees and I begin by preparing my pie shell.  I take about eight crescrent rolls and separate them into a round pan and make it to where half of each of their sides is covering the bottom of the pan (to where the bottom of the pan is covered with the crescent rolls...this is my pie shell)...the other half of each of the crescent roll's sides is hanging over the side of the pan.

2. Then I take and brown my ground beef and mix some taco seasoning in it and also in a separate pan I cook some taco rice.

3. Then I mix together the cooked ground beef, taco rice, and refried beans.

4. I add the mixture to my crescent roll pie shell, add shredded cheese to the top, fold the other half of the crescent rolls (that are hanging over the side of the pan) in to form what looks like the top of a pie shell.  Bake for about 20-25 minutes and voila...a taco pie!

The kids loved it enough to ask for seconds and Justin even had it for dinner when he came home last night.

Here's photos of before and after it's baked.



  1. Looks very tasty! I am definitely going to try this!

    I have a recipe section on my blog, called Kids in the Kitchen, where I add easy, fun recipes that kids can help with. Do you mind if I add your great Taco Pie recipe? I will credit you and provide a link to your blog as well (via your button). Would be a great addition.

    There is a mini cinnamon roll recipe there that uses the crescent rolls. My kids love making it with me.

  3. That looks good! I'd make it with ground turkey because I don't eat red meat, but other than that, it looks really easy! I love easy recipes, especially since they're the only kind I can manage!
